Summer crops moving south

Traditionally dryland summer grains have generally only been grown in Northern NSW and Queensland (there have been irrigated summer crops grown in Southern NSW and Northern Victoria for a long time.)  With the advent of no-till, summer grain production is now possible (and somewhat beeneficial) in southern areas.Here are some links to three interesting articles that show other farmers who are trialing dryland summer cropsin Southern Australia. I have also included a link to a provocative article by WA agronomist, Wayne Smith:

Bruce Watson, Parkes, NSW

Schodde family, Murtoa, Vic   

Rural Property Management, Evansford, Vic
