Trials were undertaken to demonstrate the effects of rotation, fallow management, nitrogen levels, water availability and grassy weeds on crown rot and crop agronomy... Build-up of crown rot in paddocks should be assessed by monitoring late in the season... The experiment showed that grass weeds, even at levels that caused heavy yield losses, had a relatively small effect on crown rot in continuous wheat or in short rotations, where the dominant effect was the inoculum present in the wheat stubble...

Grain yields of both crops at Merredin were very poor... In 2012, rotation trials of three years duration were initiated at Cunderdin (wheat - lupin) and at Merredin (wheat - chickpea) to examine the effect of crop row spacing, herbicides and applied nitrogen (in wheat only) on crops and weeds... In the chickpea crop, Outlook controlled annual ryegrass plants measured at 4 weeks after emergence, more effectively than simazine (Outlook 2 plants/m2 versus simazine 8 plants/m2 of annual ryegrass)...
