GRDC Taxonomy:
Rhizoctonia has been a constant threat to grain production in South Australia over the past decade, and emerged as a significant root disease in many South Australian crops in 2009, with barley being particularly affected... It is estimated that some crops have had their yield potential reduced by in excess of 50% as a result of this rhizoctonia infection... The high levels of rhizoctonia were the result of a combination of conditions conducive to infection, reduced fertiliser inputs, and changing.....
GRDC Taxonomy:
Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) fertilisers together constitute one of the largest variable input costs for grain production... Excessive amounts of fertiliser application will not only directly increase input costs but can also lead to yield penalties as well as negative environmental impacts such as greenhouse gas emissions... Current decision support systems, especially those based on soil testing, often underestimate the contribution of all potential soil nutrient pools...
GRDC Taxonomy:
" Increasing the value and marketability of feed grains for the grains industry.. This project aims to gather evidence that grains can vary in nutritve value and that value can often be higher than "standard" or "average" industry quoted values used by stockfeed manufacturers... The aim is to capture trends in feed grain quality across seasons and varieties grown in different regions and to identify the comparitive value of feeds to livestock based on nutritive value...

" CIMMYT Alliance.. Genetic maps to fast-track breeding for a drier climate.. An ambitious Mexican wheat and maize program involving Australian researchers is poised to deliver an unprecedented genetics resource to help plant breeders speed up crop improvements...
GRDC Taxonomy:
Research in the biological sciences requires the use of sound statistical science... This includes both study design and analysis, though most economies can be achieved through evaluation of a relevant, testable and meaningful hypothesis with the use of a sound experimental design... Statistical science has played an important role in quantitative genetics, sound phenotyping, and accurate identification.....
