The wheat varieties bred for traditional wheatbelt with the low and medium rainfall may limit yield potential when grown in the high rainfall area. Lengthening the construction period duration (CPD) of the spike growth may increase the sink size and therefore potential yield. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationships between yield, flowering time and the duration of spike growth period and to investigate whether yield can be improved by lengthening CPD.
