Drill sowing Viand
resulted in higher yield and no lodging compared to dry broadcasting on the same farm in this example.
The grower understood the paddock nutrition and adjusted it accordingly.
The combination of growing a shorter season variety and drill sowing resulted in a lower water use and exceptional water use efficiency on this soil type.
After grazing / cutting for hay, Viand
was established mid to late November, harvested April/May and drilled into an oat crop. The grower is very happy with the subsequent paddock returns, ease and flexibility of the farming system.
