This manual is part of a joint project between the Department of Agriculture and Food WA and the South East Premium Wheat Growers Association (SEPWA) with funding from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC). Growers in the Esperance port zone have been concerned with declining protein levels in wheat and its impact on farm returns as well as strong messages from processors of Esperance wheat that they require higher protein in the wheat they mill and process.
The project entailed grower involvement in designing and executing field scale experiments using farmer machinery, grower workshops, field days and meetings to learn about nitrogen dynamics in farming systems and using fertiliser to manage wheat protein and yield.
