The National Mungbean Improvement Program (NMIP) has delivered immediate productivity and profitability gains to Northern Region growers and set the foundation to deliver the next generation of varieties that will increase crop reliability and grower confidence... From the foundation, NMIP will develop the next generation of mungbean varieties which combine productivity gains, yield stability and specific adaptation to regional and irrigated production to further increase grower confidence and adoption of mungbeans... Two hundred and sixty new lines developed in this project were evaluated in Stage 1 yield trials at Biloela, Hermitage and Narrabri in 2007/08...

Highly vigorous wheat lines have been developed which can produce up to double the biomass of commonly grown varieties by the early tillering stage, effectively shading out weeds... Increased root growth also enables the wheat to out-compete weeds for water and nutrients... The best of the competitive lines grown at Eradu yielded 3.4 tonnes per hectare, compared with 3.5t/ha for Magenta , the top yielding commercial line...

Young faba bean plants grown in northern New South Wales (NSW) often have crinkly leaves and blackened necrotic growing tips... Crinkly leaf damage in faba beans, as seen in the northern region of NSW, is caused by thrips, not leafhoppers, which are also present when the damage occurs... We also assessed the plant's capacity to compensate for early damage and the effect on yield...

A new mechanism to measure a cereal cultivars frost susceptibility has been developed by the Australian National Frost Program... 108.63: Ben Biddulph: And we actually go through every plot that 112.38: is flowering that day and we go through and tag between 30 and 60 heads in that particular 118: plot and we monitor those for the next 6 weeks, collect those heads and then take them back 122.64: to the laboratory and look at grain set and from that we can look at the reduction in 126.75: grain number and look at how the variety compares to other varieties at the same stage of development... 287.419: Ben Biddulph: But yeah it will be a while away I mean at 290.75: the moment growers can look forward to knowing the susceptibility of their varieties within 296.86: 2 to 3 years for wheat and barley but it is going to be a lot longer process for actually 301.669: developing frost tolerant per say and also trying to unravel those management impacts...

The GRDC-supported National Mungbean Improvement Program is making gains with new and better varieties.. In comparison to White Gold - the highest-yielding commercial variety - 45/52-21 has yielded, overall, two per cent higher, ranging from equal yield to four per cent better, depending on the region... Subjective and objective quality tests over three years have shown 3511-32 to have superior seed quality compared to other lines in the dull-seed-coat category...

There is a need to identify molecular markers linked to minor genes controlling resistance that are suitable for implementation in breeding... Achievements in identifying molecular markers and their genetic inheritance developed during this project have provided tools needed to track and select lines from breeding populations... Included in the agreement are other sources of resistance and homozygous populations that can be accessed by DAFWA in future collaborative research to identify and characterise novel sources of SNB resistance...

Excessive application of N may increase susceptibility of the crop to disease and increase water use early in the growing season whereas insufficient application may limit grain yield, grain protein and subsequent profitability... As part of the GRDC funded VSAP project, five nitrogen use efficiency trials were conducted in 2011 at Trangie, Condobolin, Parkes, Coonamble and Spring Ridge, as well as a sowing time trial at Trangie, with these trials used in this paper to assess the grain yield and grain protein concentration of several commercial wheat varieties... N application increased the protein of all the varieties, with protein increases being recorded up to 160 kg/ha of applied N...
