Optimal flowering times are affected by the risk of frost (if flowering happens too early) and the risk of heat stress (if flowering occurs too late). Tables 1 and 2 show optimal flowering windows for durum wheat across southern Australia range from early-September to early-November in dryland conditions and late-September to mid-November under irrigation, depending on the region. Over the long-term, we showed that early sowing dates for durum wheat produce higher yields than late sowing.
