Introduction Within south-eastern Australia, rusts are the most widespread and potentially damaging diseases of cereal crops... For example, leaf rust of wheat does not attack barley... A good example is WyalkatchemA. Growers using such cultivars must plan to protect their crops from stripe rust before the onset of effective APR to minimise rust build up...

Net blotches (Pyrenophora teres f. teres and P.t. f. maculata) remain the major diseases of barley in the northern region... While net form net blotch (P.t. f. teres) can be the more devastating disease, resistance to the disease is present in several of our leading varieties... Seed harvested from crops heavily infected with net form net blotch should not be retained for sowing...

Approximately 20% of the random survey samples were found to have some resistance to Wildcat, 10% to Topik and 4% to Mataven... There are populations of wild oats that have resistance to all the three modes of actions with selective post-emergence activity... In summary, GR ARG distribution in Australia is best summarised in Table 3...

Making best use of soil moisture.. John Passioura, CSIRO Plant Industry, Canberra ACT Take-home messages Prospects for getting crops that yield well during a drought in the sense of greatly exceeding the benchmark of 20 kg/ha/mm are very remote When diagnosing causes of low WUE it helps to dissect WUE into two components: the above-ground biomass/ha per mm of seasonal water supply, and the harvest index - the proportion of the biomass that is in the grain... The benchmark has three components embedded in it, namely: ?X the evaporative loss of available water from the soil ?X the ratio betw...

Phosphorus application improves grain yield regardless of variety choice, but limit the amount of P applied in direct contact with seed... Due to lack of adequate follow-up rain at both Nyngan and Trangie sites after the in-crop application, only the rate component of 2013 trials is reported ... Although N application can increase grain yield, it may reduce oil concentration in the grain, as shown at Gilgandra in 2012...

Becoming a trusted adviser: A procession of faith.. The key to your professional success is your ability to earn the trust and confidence of your clients... The creation of trust is what earns the right to influence clients; trust is also at the root of client satisfaction and loyalty...

At a recent Grain and Graze farmer group discussion held at Ardrossan a Case Study farm was used to assess the impact of some strategic decisions such as the purchase versus lease of land... The same approach is used in this paper... The spread of results will increase as the greater number of paddocks is swapped opportunistically from a low gross margin to a higher gross margin crop...

Soil moisture probes like any other component of precision ag can help people confirm decisions or take decision making to another level... Management decisions determining crop type, inputs such as nutrition and disease control are the ones identified where knowledge of deep soil moisture levels may assist with risk management... The objective is to demonstrate the capability of soil moisture monitoring technology with remote communication systems to display soil moisture data from key cropping regions across Victoria and determine how this information can be used by both agronomist and f...

INTRODUCTION Tax effective debt reduction involves reducing debt e.g. liabilities while at the same time avoiding paying excessive tax... By utilising various tax concessions provided in the ITAA and the Superannuation Investment Supervisory Act and Regulations, ("SIS Act") and (SIS Regs) it is possible to reduce debt tax effectively... As a result if there is a strong demand and shortage in supply, prices go through the roof...

As an example, where appropriate use of fertilisers can increase productivity beyond that currently being attained, adjusting the amount or timing of fertiliser application would result in greater carbon inputs to the soil... Recent research results have also noted that the proportion of residue carbon that is retained in a soil to enhance soil carbon stocks can be enhanced by ensuring that enough nutrients exist in the soil to both satisfy the crop requirements and the requirements to build soil organic carbon... If we use the same bulk density as above (1.2 g/cm3) and restrict our calcul...
