Performance in 1998 of recently released wheat varieties

Wilson, R., Barclay, I., McLean, R., Diepeveen, D.ORCID: 0000-0002-1535-8019, Loughman, R. and Lambe, B. (1999) Performance in 1998 of recently released wheat varieties. In: Crop Updates 1999: Cereals Update, 17 - 18 February 1999, Rendezvous Observation City Hotel, Scarborough, Perth



The following impressions are based on preliminary results and grower feedback. Screenings have generally been low in 1998, but frost effects as well as the unseasonal summer rain effects have given concern especially in the southern areas. The yield performance in 1998 has been consistent with the longer term. However the effects of frost and rain prior to harvest have been unusual. We need to interpret the varieties response to these events in terms of the likelihood of long term occurrence.
