Dookie Trial Site – 2017
Our Dookie trial site looked a ‘picture’ as it neared harvest time in November 2017. Results from this site further demonstrated Bottler’s strong adaptability to this region. Some promising new barley lines also loved the Dookie soil and growing season.

Beaufort at NVT Numurkah (irrigated site) 2015
A visit to the Numurkah NVT Irrigated wheat trial site (Oct 2015) caused some surprise when standing in front of the Beaufort Wheat plot (mid season, awnless, red grained, feed wheat). The plot looked amazing – absolutely jammed with heads standing about 1.3m high but with no sign any lodging issues – noted among many of the other lines at the site.

Mini bulk up plots at our main trial site – Inverleigh region
During the evaluation phase of the GrainSearch Trial program, selected potential varieties are sown into multiple plot areas at the trial site (mini bulk ups). This allows GrainSearch to carefully check the potential new seed line for off-types whilst building seed stock for potential multiplication on farm to prepare for eventual commercial release and to have sufficient seed to qualify for NVT entry requirements (must have 500kg of seed of a line to enter it into NVT testing).
