Management of subsoil acidity and compaction using a combination of lime, deep ripping and controlled traffic Stephen Davies, Chris Gazey, Breanne Best and David Gartner, Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia.. The management of carbon can easily be promoted within the context of retaining both a profitable and viable farming system... A number of questions remain in relation to carbon offsets in agriculture and many of the opportunities and risks are unknown at this point in time...

East Coast -20 -40 2 Deregulation is working (cont.) 2... Port Access - the major issue facing the industry Auction systems need refining Laycan times need to be more flexible BHC hidden charges 5.. The challenge some quotes by millers in Asia "Prior hectic to deregulation there was very little uncertainty - uncertain because of shipping bottlenecks in now..
GRDC Taxonomy:
Recently released chickpea varieties are only moderately resistant to this disease fungicide sprays are still required to maximise yield... X Application of Bravo alone did not reduce Ascochyta severity at either assessment as germinating spores had penetrated leaves prior to Bravo application and were no longer vulnerable to the fungicide... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 122 6 0 0 2 s e t a d p U p o r C s s e n i s u b i r g A i l a n o S ...
The comparison of chaff carts, windrow burning and HSD systems at 12 WA wheat belt sites during the 2010 harvest found that all three systems resulted in 50% reductions in the autumn emergence of annual ryegrass populations... To evaluate and demonstrate the HSD system across a range of crop production environments, the HSD and accompanying header were taken on the road across the WA wheat-belt during the 2010 harvest... To demonstrate the HSD system, local crop producers were invited along to each site where they were provided a description of the HSD system and its efficacy in previous r...

Timing 0.001 9 # Not registered for use in field pea in WA the application rates of both MCPA ester LVE and Brodal tested has been purposely omitted... * Not registered for use in oats in WA the application rates of these herbicides have been purposely omitted...

GRDC Taxonomy:
KEYMESSAGES Most pre emergent herbicides gave adequate annual ryegrass control under dry seeding apart from Trifluralin which was variable... The aim of the study was to investigate weed management with pre-emergent herbicides and weed seed harvest management under a dry seeded wheat system... Effect of time of sowing and pre emergent herbicides on annual ryegrass numbers in a field in Cunderdin (where UTC indicates untreated control)...
GRDC Taxonomy:
Phosphorus management is characterized by an initial build-up phase that corrects P deficiency followed by a maintenance phase after soils reach the Colwell P values needed for near maximum production (critical values)... For example, if we removed 5 kg P/ha in the form of P contained in grains and we applied 10 kg P/ha as fertiliser, then the P balance efficiency is 5/10x100 = 50 %. P balance efficiency allows us to assess along with soil test P data if we are building-up, maintaining or depleting soil P... We estimate that about 87% of the wheat paddock soil samples examined are no longe...
Western Australian growers now have a choice of five relatively new Australian Hard (AH) varieties, all of which ranked well in variety performance across the state... The NVT trials are used for the purpose of attaining full yield potential and reaching target quality parameters and as a consequence yield cannot be limited by nutrition or weeds... MET data does not contain a measure of error (Standard Error value)...
