Grains and field crops
Trial 65SG5. Location - Paddock H5 on Salmon Gum Research Station
Cleared in 1962, then cropped until the start of the trial in 1968. Two of the four blocks were sown to Cyprus Barrel medic which is topdressed with superphosphate. The other two blocks regenerate volunteer pasture which is not topdressed. In 1984 all pasture plots were sown to SERENA medic. This grew exceptionally well in 1984 and set a lot of seed. In 1987 field peas were introduced into 4 reps of an existing medic: crop rotation.
