GRDC has invested significant funding in this area for the past eight years for research and extension with grain growers to develop innovative ways of managing resistant weeds while improving farm profitability... As the shift to more intensive cropping systems gains momentum and herbicide use increases, authorities say it could only be a matter of time before resistance levels in southern cropping states reach those of Western Australia where growers have been battling the nation's highest incidence of herbicide resistance... Weeds compete against crops for valuable moisture, light and n...

" Grains Industry Research Scholarship - Richard Flavel (UNE) Root vigor of cereal genotypes in response to phosphorus nutrition.. Cereals seeking phosphorus: How much to spend on a first date?.. Good roots are priceless - but can we get them cheaper than we think Root architecture and management is AS important as canopy architecture and management < Keep browsing..
" Grain defect elimination in wheat.. Breeders given tools to reduce grain defects.. Australian wheat breeders have been equipped with new tools to assist the development of varieties which, at harvest, are less likely to be downgraded in quality due to grain defects...

Growers are now asking for more information about the environment in which current and emerging cultivars were grown... The project will select ten NVT sites across the country and characterize their environments by additional measurement of their climate, available soil water, soil nitrogen, crop disease and crop growth and development... Leading wheat producers are managing their crops at about 75% of water limited yield potential by good weed management, effective disease control, earlier sowing time, matching nitrogen fertiliser application strategies to seasonal conditions, fallow man...
GRDC Taxonomy:
The major grain legume grown in Australia is narrow-leafed lupins (NLL), but being a recently domesticated crop it has many agronomic limitations that have led to the dramatic fall of its use over the last few years... Our major focus is to decipher as much of the gene space sequence as possible and to use this valuable sequence information to greatly accelerate marker discovery and identification of candidate genes of interest for lupin crop improvement... Our approach has a heavy emphasis on molecular marker discovery and the development of a dense genetic map to help make the sequence i...

The aim of the project is to further develop, improve and validate the Weed Seed Wizard, the weed seedbank management tool that was developed in the Weed CRC and to encourage its adoption by researchers, growers and consultants... This in turn, can force paddocks out of profitable grain production for a number of years Controlling weeds and minimising their impact depends on understanding and managing the weed seedbank... The project will produce a user-friendly weed seedbank management tool, The Weed Seed Wizard, which will give growers an insight into the weed seedbank and to allow them ...

Grain growers are first in the value chain and have a pivotal role when it comes to determining the quality of grain offered to Australia's export and domestic markets... Making well informed on-farm decisions in areas such as early harvest, selection of storage type, insect pest control, hygiene, grain moisture management, cooling aeration and fumigation practices, will have a significant impact on the market value of a parcel of grain... A well designed and managed grain storage facility provides grain growers with the ability to 'add further value' to harvested grain...

" Mitigating nitrous oxide emissions from soils using pulses and improved nitrogen management.. The project involves measurement and comparison of N2O emissions and N dynamics in three commonly practiced dryland cropping rotation systems typical of northwest NSW. We will also compare emissions from a range of pulse legume species used within these systems... Nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from cropping soils are an important environmental issue, and can also be an indicator (not measurement) of agronomically significant nitrogen (N) losses from soil...
