Best Practice Guidelines Cotton Farming Systems.. Growers may achieve maximum profitability by applying additional spring-irrigations... The nitrogen requirement of an 8 t/ha wheat crop is approximately 275 kg N/ha studies in 2008 showed that many long-fallow paddocks that lodged had well in excess of this amount of nitrogen available (see Figure 9 (a))...

In summary, 20 trials have now recently been undertaken across a number of seasons and locations in NSW. None of them have demonstrated S responses in yield or oil %. This does not exclude deficiency and yield penalties from occurring but does highlight that the frequency and the likelihood is not high... In summary, using Yield Prophet as a way of increasing soil water knowledge is more difficult to trial than probes... In summary, the growth in the use of probes to understand soil water is easily explained using the framework above...

The important factors in getting pre-emergent herbicide to work effectively while minimising crop damage are: to understand the position of the weed seeds in the soil; the soil type (particularly amount of organic matter and crop residue on the surface); the solubility of the herbicide; and its ability to be bound by the soil... Weed seeds will most likely absorb herbicide if the herbicide is at or below the seed in the soil profile... Only some of the mutations provide resistance to both groups of herbicides...

Nematodes reduce yields in intolerant wheat cultivars Nematodes reduce the amount of water available for plant growth Nematodes impose early stress that reduces yield potential despite the availability of water and nutrients Maintaining a low nematode population improves crop yields.. Overall, populations increased five times compared to before planting the summer crops, but remained below 250/kg soil (Figure 4)... Data is presented as an average of the added CR and no added CR treatments for this site...

Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus can be a threat in all environments, and it is recommended that seed be treated with imidicloprid, or crops closely monitored for aphid infestation and sprayed ... In the circumstances using fertilisers that have a higher sulphur content, like MES 10 or Airseeder Superfect, can be beneficial... A fast track project was initiated to demonstrate and evaluate a range of management strategies that Twelve farms were surveyed across the western districts of southern Victoria that were considered suitable as potential trial sites based on grower and adviser recommendatio...

At Agrimaster, we use a set of powerful business tools to breakthrough barriers so you can see where you are 'now', 'where' you want to go and 'how' you are going to get there... As a farm becomes bigger and involves another generation, there is a need to turn our attention to the people inside the organisation and the formalities, such as job descriptions, staff reviews, training, individual equity in the business etc., needed to foster their individual long term growth and development... Matters discussed include financial position, strategic direction, operational challenges and structu...
