Opportunity to shape future grains industry The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is calling for applications for between five and seven part-time, non-executive directors for terms up to three years... The GRDC board operates at a strategic level and requires a diverse set of skills to manage the broad range of issues facing the grains industry," Mr Marshall said. ".. Geoff Budd, GRDC executive manager legal and procurement, says GRDC is seeking candidates who can demonstrate capabilities and expertise in one or more of the following fields: Mr Budd says all candidates sh...

KEEP A LID ON STORED GRAIN PESTS: The tolerance for live storage pests in grain sold off-farm for the domestic human-consumption and export markets is zero... With more growers storing grain on-farm these days, it is critical that they identify pests early and monitor for pests on a regular basis... The guide provides descriptions and images of stored grain pests, information on how they can be monitored and identified, the control methods required, how to sample for resistance testing, as well as details of other useful resources...

Mixed cropping farmers looking to maximise productivity from winter crops can consider grazing some grain only varieties of wheat, barley and triticale without sacrificing final grain yield... That's been the take home message from recent trial work funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and undertaken by the NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) comparing the performance of dual purpose and grain only varieties in terms of dry matter production and grain yield... Management is critical though with the research confirming that variety selection as well as...

The rise of summer grains in double-cropping areas has seen some growers, researchers and advisers questioning the future of wheat as the backbone of production in the farming systems of NSW and Queensland... James Clark, Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) northern panel chair says rotations involving summer grains (including sorghum, maize, sunflowers, mungbeans and soybeans) have become vital to future of farming in the region... Mr Clark, speaking at the Australian Summer Grains Conference 2013 held at the Gold Coast this week, says rotations and careful crop sequencing ...

Get fixated on nitrogen fixation.. Inoculating legumes with rhizobia can enhance nitrogen fixation and represents a minor production cost with a potentially substantial payoff in terms of increases in legume nodulation, grain and biomass yield, nitrogen fixation and post-crop soil nitrate levels... Each year Australian growers sow inoculated legume seed on about 2.5 million hectares, equivalent to 50 per cent of the area sown to legumes...

James Clark, GRDC northern panel chair said the annual spring tour took on special significance this year with inspection of new trial sites and the launch of a new CQ-specific desi chickpea variety, Pistol ... Mr Clark says cropping over the last 30-50 years has also resulted in significant depletion of key soil nutrients nitrogen and phosphorus in many downs soils, whereas the incidence of deficiencies in others such as potassium and sulfur is expected to increase... The panel met with local growers and advisers at sites throughout the tour and visited on-farm with growers including Darr...

"I encourage all growers in the region to set aside some time to attend the Update at Ganmain which will help to set them on the right course for the season ahead and beyond.".. Caption: GRDC Southern Regional Panel chair David Shannon says the Ganmain Update is an opportunity for local growers to discuss the latest research outcomes and farm practices that could have a positive impact within their cropping systems...

Western Australian research investigating herbicide control of wild radish in cereal crops has highlighted the importance of good spraying conditions to maximise chemical uptake by the weed... It has also shown the importance of combining herbicides with different modes of action to maximise wild radish control, especially where herbicide resistance is suspected... "It is critical that, where possible, growers take advantage of good spraying conditions to maximise wild radish control to not only grow grain but also prevent radish seeds returning to the seed bank and further compounding the...

Growers in the Esperance region who need to bait mice should use the full label rate to minimise the chance of costly re-infestations, and continue to monitor paddocks during the growing season... "Past local grower experience is that if baiting is not done correctly the first time, mouse numbers can quickly bounce back and it is more likely that costly and time-consuming follow up baiting measures are required," he said... The GRDC, on behalf of growers and the Australian Government, is continuing to invest in a range of mouse-related research, development and extension activities and sup...
