Trials established in 2020 include: 25 in Finely, 19 in Kerang, 1 in Noorong, 8 in Frances, 2 in Griffith and 4 in Tasmania. The cops being investigated include faba beans, canola, durum, chickpeas and barley.
The Chickpea trials include:
- Influence of irrigation system on chickpea performance (overhead and flood)
- Influence of different rhizobium inoculants on chickpea yield and profitability under overhead irrigation
- Influence of chickpea stubble incorporation on yield and profitability of following durum wheat
- Disease management strategies for chickpeas grown under irrigation
Trials at Kerang
The trials at the ICC site evaluate the influence of different rhizobium treatments on chickpea nodulation, dry matter, grain yield and profitability under irrigation. Watch the short video and download the fact sheet below to find out more about this work.
