Wilson, R., Barclay, I., McLean, R., Diepeveen, D. and Loughman, R. (2000) Performance in 1999 of recently released wheat varieties in Western Australia. In: Crop Updates 2000: Cereals Update, 16 - 17 February 2000, Rendezvous Observation City Hotel, Scarborough, Perth
1999 was a record wheat production year in Western Australia. However widespread and early leaf rust affected the crops, as did stem rust in some areas. Rain at harvest caused problems in central and southern areas of the state. This resulted in some downgrading.
Strong adoption of the new varieties released from Agriculture Western Australia (AGWEST) occurred in 1999. About 68% of the wheat grown in Western Australia in 1999 was from varieties bred in Western Australia. Westonia and Arrino were each grown on about 10% of the area in 1999.
