The objective of the national demonstration initiative is to establish a network of farms to demonstrate strategies for grain farming systems that address adaptation to climate change impacts... As a consequence: - Farmers and advisers have direct access to, and learning from, on-ground demonstration of new and existing, locally-relevant adaptations to climate change to maintain or enhance farm viability.- Rapid dissemination of meaningful and believable messages on adapting to climate change to their local communities.- Assessment of the emission implications of the demonstrated different...
GRDC Taxonomy:
Foliar diseases are a major constraint to national wheat yield stability, and cause annual industry wide costs ranging from yield loss and down grading of grain, to chemical control expenses and removal of preferred varieties from recommendation lists... The importance of wheat diseases to Australian cereal producers was highlighted in a GRDC commissioned study that was published in September 2009... The study by Murray and Brennan (2009) on the economic impact of wheat diseases estimated that stripe rust caused current.....

GRDC Taxonomy:
Three herbicide tolerance projects have been conducted in NR since 1999, and these have highlighted that NR wheat and barley varieties differed considerably in their sensitivity to herbicides... We have tested 15 and 38 NR varieties of barley and wheat with 19 and 33 registered herbicides, a range of varieties with 12 and 19 new barley and wheat herbicides, and many advance breeding lines with a standard set of commonly used herbicides... The results from the projects have alerted growers,.....
GRDC Taxonomy:
Inoculation of legumes with rhizobia is one of the success stories of Australian agriculture... Farmers inoculate about 2.5 million ha sown legumes annually, using certified, high-quality inoculants and legumes growing on 25 million ha of land fix about 3 million tonnes N, worth ~$3 billion, annually... Australia's QC and QA system for rhizobial inoculants was borne of the necessity since the mid 50's to provide Australian farmers with high quality legume inoculants and prevent nodulation failure and crop losses...
GRDC Taxonomy:
The kit detects presence of high pI alpha-amylase synthetised in grain when wheat with the LMA gene is subjected to environmental conditions that promote expression of LMA. LMA has undesirable impacts on grain quality and the kit is used to eliminate breeders lines carrying the LMA gene... The test kit is used to detect LMA in grain from field trials of from wheat plants subjected to environmental conditions designed to promote expression of LMA... The kits also include detector monoclonal antibody (also owned by Bayer CropScience), buffers, a commercial antibody conjugate to detect the mo...

" Grains Industry Research Scholarship - Hasim Talukder (UA) Genetic and physiological studies in wheat to mitigate heat stress during grain filling.. There was some doubt about the severity of the impact of short-term (single day) heat events under field conditions... Field studies were undertaken in 2009 and 2010 to investigate the effect of heat stress on four wheat genotypes (Excalibur, Krichauff, Gladius and Janz)...
