occasional frosts in the central wheatbelt the grasses are likely to shut down from late autumn until mid-spring, so biomass production will be restricted even if they persist. As a result they may have a limited role in the western part of the region where the growing season is longer. The wetter than normal.

Garlinge JR () (eds) “The Wheat Book. would allow growers to take advantage of early planting opportunities across a very broad sowing window (late March – early May, earlier if using for dual-purpose). The stable flowering date of a winter wheat like Whistler would also reduce frost risk associated with early sowing.

  Climate change is putting pressure on wheat yields in the south-west of Western Australia in several ways: lower annual and autumn and spring rainfall; later starts to the growing season; higher temperatures during the growing season. Most agriculture in this area is non-irrigated (dryland), based on annuals, in a winter-rainfall Mediterranean climate. In rainfed environments typical of much of the Australian wheatbelt, wheat is commonly dry-sown at shallow depths owing to the risk of poor crop emergence. A lack of suitable moisture often then delays crop emergence until past the optimal date resulting in yield penalties. Dual Purpose long season winter wheats to improve Productivity in Western Australia Mohammad Amjad1, DL Sharma2, was a comparatively wet year with a very early break providing an opportunity to sow early. variety by time of sowing trial in the central wheatbelt at Merredin in Synoptic weather systems form an important part of the physical link between remote large-scale climate drivers and regional rainfall. A synoptic climatology of daily rainfall events is developed for the Central Wheatbelt of southwestern Australia over the April–October growing season .

Agriculture Western Australia Bulletin (Eds WK Anderson, JR Garlinge) pp. – (Agriculture Western Australia) Shackley BJ, Anderson WK () Responses of wheat cultivars to time of sowing in the southern wheatbelt of Western Australia. The biophysical simulation model, based on a representative wheat and sheep farming system in the wheatbelt of Western Australia, involved two grazing-management scenarios and used climate data. The most widespread tree in the Wheatbelt, it is also one of the most majestic. It was named by the first settlers due to the colour of its smooth bark. Known to be an indicator of good heavy soil, the salmon gum open woodland was extensively cleared in the early days.   1. Introduction. Many regions of Australia have been extensively cleared of native vegetation to make way for agriculture. In the wheatbelt of Western Australia – a zone of 18 million hectares in the south west receiving – mm annual rainfall – only 10% of the native vegetation remains on average, with the figure being as low as 3% in many places (Beard and Sprenger, ).
