2013 Quirindi Shire Bread Wheat Trophy

Long term Total Grower Services clients Parraweena Pastoral Company via Willow Tree NSW won the 2013 Quirindi Shire Bread Wheat Trophy.

2013 suffered a very dry finish in the area with many crops not filling but this did not apply to our clients. Their win was made even more remarkable because it was achieved on one third of industry standard nitrogen.

The paddock that produced the winning wheat crop had been on a TGS recommended Petrik Soil Technology program for five years. The wheat was planted on 200kg/ha of sulphate of ammonia with a little liquid starter resulting in 43kg/ha of nitrogen and only 1kg/ha of phosphorous. The paddock only received 75mm of in-crop rain.
