The capacity of the plant to take up potassium is not directly related to potassium in solution... Spraying is best done when there is some wind, and when the operator can be sure that wind direction has stabilised... Driftability of amine formulations The 2,4- D products Surpass and Amicide 625 which were used in the trial are considered to be nonvolatile any drift that is associated with these products will be droplet drift not vapour drift...

The farms which work on high volume mostly use conventional methods with some alternative practices used such as green manure crops, cover crops and composted material... Their conventional production system uses holistic methods to ensure sustainable agriculture, including practices like compost at 4-5 tonnes per hectare per year spread over the fields, and six-year rotations as a minimum for vegetables... Many of the businesses using conventional methods realised the importance of soil health and the need to improve their soils to maintain current production...

The project has shown how the practice of SSM can deliver large, consistent and recurring increases in the yields of cereals, canola and pulse crops grown on Sodosol soils across the HRZ of Victoria... The practice was developed to overcome crop yield constraints caused by dense clay subsoils that are widespread across the HRZ. Low aeration in the clay limits deep root growth into the subsoil and this has been identified as a cause for the generally disappointing crop yields in the Victorian HRZ. Earlier research demonstrated how SSM can transform the physical properties of the clay layers... For sites with the 1/2 SSM treatment (6 site x seasons), the commercial wheat crop yielded an average of 6.2t/ha, the full SSM 9.7t/ha, and the 1/2 SSM 8.8 t/ha (42% response).This was surprising and suggests that this lower rate of manure incorporation will also give increases in grain yield...

Figure 1 Output page of NBudget showing the 6 steps to estimate crop yields for all 6 crops and fertiliser N requirements for bread wheat, durum, barley and canola for the coming season.. Potential grain yields for the other crops were calculated by multiplying the potential wheat yields by constants - 1.05 for durum, 1.33 for barley, 0.50 for canola, 0.64 for chickpea and 0.80 for fababean... To answer the question, we used BOM rainfall data in "NBudget' to simulate cropping of wheat in 2009 and chickpea in 2010, grown under no-till and cultivated systems...

Although the level of APR is excellent in both Suntop and LongReach Spitfire , it is important to remember that crop management and environmental conditions can have a significant impact on the effectiveness of APR in protecting crops from rust diseases... Looking ahead to the 2015 growing season, we recommend that anyone planning to grow either Suntop or LongReach Spitfire should have a stripe rust management plan well ahead of planting... Other growers should closely monitor their crops of Suntop and LongReach Spitfire and manage the disease as it occurs in consultation with their local advisers...

Disease outbreaks prompt calls for mungbean samples.. Wet weather has sparked the development of bacterial and fungal diseases in a number of mungbean crops across Queensland in recent weeks... Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) plant pathologist Lisa Kelly said halo blight samples from all Queensland and New South Wales production areas are particularly sought after to help determine which races of the pathogen are dominating commercial crops...
