2015 Stubble Harvest Report

2015 Seasonal effects of strategic stubble treatments on nitrogen response in wheat in CWFS districts

The focus of recent research is concentrating on maintaining profitable retained stubble systems rather than investigating the agronomic and economic benefits of stubble retention.


CWFS are conducting trials at its regional sites that:

  • investigate the impact of different stubble treatments imposed towards
    the end of the fallow have on nitrogen response (applied as urea) in
    wheat yield and quality
  • evaluate any interaction between pre-sowing stubble treatment and
    topdressing timing

During 2015 CWFS conducted these trials were conducted at 4 locations
Mumbil Creek, Weethalle, Tottenham, and Wirrinya.
