Preferring to be sown at a depth below 25mm, they do not like to be pushed below 35cm. While it is known to be susceptible to frosts, it will grow in a range of soil types and colonise well. Applications of phosphate (50 kg/ha) and sulfur (10 kg/ha) can significantly increase seed yield according to NSW Dpt of Primary Industries.  Stored seeds are viable for a lengthy 12-30 months and normal rates are 30-40%.
