Paddock survey shows that nearly 50% of growers miss out on 500 kg/ha in yield potential. Yield gap analysis in mungbeans shows: fallow > double crop due to 💦 narrow rows <40 and risk factors are starting nitrate N < 65kg/ha, nematodes > 3 & high temps at 🌾

Lots to consider for many scenarios but rainfall capture still highest priority for me. I'd be worried about fining up soil and sealing off w Kelly chains unless plenty of residue.

Row direction playing a big role in 2018/19 crop ?

What a great way to significantly reduce your herbicide use /cost

I wonder if in a dry year, the better shading of narrower rows reduces evaporative losses and leaves more for crop use? Would be interesting to have moisture probes during season... Row direction?

Excellent trial. May have missed it but what was the yield difference 50 vs 100cm?

Here's an idea worth considering for any farmers frustrated by the ill-informed continual attacks an agriculture in Australia. .

Thanks for sharing. Maybe that cover will pay for itself by helping keep some late summer rainfall safe from evaporation until next planting opportunity. Every 1mm stored soil moisture is worth $4-5/ha of grain next crop. 🤞🌧

At the risk of starting a lively discussion, this article explains why at FARM, we rarely recommend MAP at planting ie we use it to make our corrections separately & at planting we focus on supporting natural processes at germination & early growth phases.

Lots of branching in the developing head of ratooned winter sorghum suggests good yield potential. Winter sorghum was sown on 7/8/2018 and either ratooned or re-sown in January. See this crop flowering at our field day (download field day details here )

Thanks Tim. Lots of scenarios I know but wondering if grain sorghum that failed or VL yield is any greater/lesser risk? That in field test sounds like the go - any more info?

if anyone has heard of any prussic acid issues grazing drought-affected sorghum this season in NNSW/SQLD? Failed/harvested grain sorghum /forage/millet/johnson grass I know we could test but interested to know if anyone has seen any issues yet. Thanks in advance.

At DataFarming we believe that ground truthing is a fundamental part of Precision ag and that agronomists are a crucial. People that believe we can do away with agronomists and replace with remote sensing shows that they have little understanding of an agronomist or agronomy
