2016 was the perfect season with no set backs. We were fortunate that all rainfall events came at the right time and there were no waterlogging events. This field was out of a wheat crop in 2014 winter then laser leveled and deep ripped. It was picked wet after 2013/14 and suffered severe compaction. Interestingly the S746 did not require the last irrigation or cut out pix and looked like it was going to yield much less than it did and was ready to pick at least a week earlier than the rest of the trial. Also the S745 looked the whitest at picking but was the lowest yielding. The field was sown to S748 and received 300ml of pix at flowering and 1.2lt at cutout.
