You typically find that the depth to the salt bulge decreases to the west... We have concluded that chickpeas were not as effective as wheat in adjusting yield components under prolonged water stress... The grain yield in the SF early burn and cultivated treatment (2.5 t/ha) was comparable to the other SF treatments in the dry 2002 season despite having the lowest incidence of crown rot infection...

Dry weight response of crops to increasing P levels with and without mycorrhizal fungi in the soil... Unlike saprobic soil fungi, which colonise and break down organic matter and do not require a host plant in the system to complete their lifecycle, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), the type found in cropping systems, do require the presence of a host to reproduce and are called obligate symbionts... Having adequate populations of mycorrhizal fungi present in soils can be beneficial and in some cases essential for crop growth...

" Rotations to reduce impact of nematodes in Western cereal cropping systems DAW00124 Start Date: 01/07/2005.. Results for Pratylenchus penetrans indicate that RLN could possibly adapt to different hosts, depending on cropping history... To optimise the management of RLN with the use of rotations, these weeds should be controlled in cropping paddocks...

At least 60% of Western Australian (WA) cropping paddocks are infested with Root Lesion Nematode (RLN - Pratylenchus spp.)... Nematode levels from plots were measured following sowing and again in mid spring... The method can distinguish oat and lucerne races of Stem Nematode, which has not previously been possible...

Tests will confirm species and population levels of these microscopic endoparasites and help the Department of Agriculture and Food WA (DAFWA) characterise distribution and gather resistance information for crops and varieties grown in WA... The research, jointly funded by GRDC and DAFWA, is vital because yield loss can occur without careful planning in crop variety selection and no chemicals are currently available to economically control RLN in broadacre cropping systems... Using resistant varieties of a crop to inhibit nematode reproduction...
