Project Aim: The aim is to establish two sites to assess the impact on wheat yields of growing two break crops in succession (“double break”), compared to the current standard of growing a break crop for one year (“single break”). Break crops refer to a pulse or oilseed crop grown instead of cereals.
Corrigin Farming Improvement Group (CFIG) have also been funded by COGGO to do similar research to WMG and CFIG. This will be another excellent opportunity to partner with another grower group from the southern region.
