• Australia boasts of being among the top ten wheat-producing countries in the world with a production of 22 million tonnes yearly. • The main states in wheat production in the continent include VictoriaWesternAustraliaQueenslandandNewSouthWales. • Wheat is the largest grain crop sewn in the autumn and harvestedinspringandsummer. • Here is PlantGrowPick- a company that offers labor-hire services to different aspects of Agriculture from horticulture to generalfarmingservices. • The company decides to walk us through the production requirements to ensure a happy harvesting of wheat in Australia.

Production • Wheat is used basically for human consumption livestockfeedsandexports. • Here are the requirements to ensure a profitable production.

slide 4:

Soil Type and Testing • The good news is wheat can adapt to a wide range of soil type but the varieties adapt differently on the pH and the aluminiumlevelofthesoil. • To optimize production ensure the soil surface pH is 6.0 and the subsurface is 4.8.

Wheat Variety • Quality and variety choices are some of the key determinants of a high-yielding crop. With different varieties to choose from it is important for farmers to bewiseinselection-saysPlantGrowPick. • The same variety can survive differently given different soil types environments and rainfall pattern. • The main factors influencing its success are the soil typerainfalltemperaturequalityandahostofothers. • One way to determine the adaptable variety is to extend the farming operation to different variety and carryoutperformancereviews.

Planting • Things to consider while selecting paddock or site for the sowing of wheat includes the seasonal pattern herbicides optionsriskofdiseasesorweedandwaterpresentinthesoil. • Seed dressing is an important part of sowing preparation. This helps to control smuts and bunts that can otherwise lead to yieldloss. • The sowing depth will influence the crop yield.
