CSBP Phosphorus Response

By Dumbleyung 2020, Dumbleyung Nutrition 2020

CSBP, GRDC & DPIRD

Objective: To determine the responsiveness of wheat to phosphorus (P) fertiliser and the effectiveness of Agras compared to MAP.

Background: This trial is part of a GRDC project aimed at increasing profit from nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) fertiliser inputs. Cropping systems have evolved a lot over the last 20 years with the adoption of no-till, earlier seeding and rainfall has declined. In this project, there are 40 one-year P response trials being conducted on wheat over 4 years to determine whether P fertiliser requirements have changed. These trials will also be used to evaluate different soil sampling methods and alternative laboratory tests.

Radish Control & Disease Prevention 

Priority: Post-emergent control of broadleaf weeds in wheat

By Broadleaf Weed Post-Emergent Herbicide 2020, Dumbleyung 2020, Dumbleyung Post-Emergent Herbicides 2020

Background

The trial was sown on the 3rd of June in Dumbleyung and the next significant rain event was on the 18th of June where 20mm was recorded. The treatments were applied 27 days after seeding. Wild Radish Raphanus raphanistrum and volunteer Bonito Canola were spread prior to spraying IBS treatments, to mimic a medium-high weed burden of approximately 8 plants/m2. Post emergent (PE) applications were sprayed at the 4-6 leaf growth stage of weeds.  Priority was assessed against ADAMA’s Quadrant, Colt and Legacy herbicides, both standalone and with the inclusions of Priority tank mixed at 25g/ha. Industry standards such as Velocity were compared and contrasted, as well as other commercially used broadleaf weed post-emergent products.

Objectives

  1. compare the efficacy of various post-emergent herbicides in wheat.
  2. compare and contrast of ADAMA’s post-emergent herbicides with and without the addition of Priority spike herbicide.

Key Findings

  • All treatments applied post-emergent, had a good effect on Wild Radish and volunteer canola
  • Treated weeds with Priority tank mix showed symptoms within 3-7 days effect, with an increased residual activity lasting into the season (21-42DAA).
  • Treatments containing Priority were significantly more effective than those without the tank mix.
