A major pest usually found in coastal and subcoastal mungbeans has moved inland over the past two summers, with severe and sustained outbreaks of more than 100 larvae per square metre reported in many crops... Hugh Brier, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) entomologist, Kingaroy, says the podborer ( Maruca vitrata ) can dramatically affect crop yield by reducing pod set, severely damaging pods that are set, and delaying harvest maturity... "Bean podborer larvae feed initially inside buds and flowers, before attacking pods," Mr Brier said...

Professor Colin Wellings (on secondment from NSW Department of Primary Industries) University of Sydney's Plant Breeding Institute, Cobbitty, NSW has urged growers to monitor crops closely for signs of rust... "Moving into late spring and summer our message to growers is to monitor and intervene with fungicide in a timely manner and this should ensure that canopies are in a good position to maximise yields.".. CAPTION: PBI pathologists are urging growers to monitor crops closely for signs of stripe rust...

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...

Plant pathologists have leapt to the defence of wheat variety, Sunvale , with a warning that some seed lots may be contaminated with rust-susceptible varieties... Dr Simpfendorfer says observations of high levels of impurity in commercial Sunvale are not surprising given that it is a 17-year-old variety... "Growers need to take more care in ensuring variety purity and correct identification of seed lots for planting," Dr Simpfendorfer said...

Increased capture and use of deep subsoil water We observed that subsoil manuring enabled the crop roots to extract more deep soil water from the subsoil layers in dry years... We believe that the improved ability of the canola crop on subsoil-manured plots to establish, and then withstand the heavy winter rainfall at the Penshurst site in 2010 (Table 3), compared with the commercial crop, resulted from better aeration in the subsoil... There was no need for the crop to extract water from the subsoil, as there was ample soil water in the topsoil...
