The project has supported the development of farming systems that incorporate forage (lab lab) and ley (butterfly pea) legumes into grain farming systems... Growing canola is like having a fallow period as far as VAM populations in the soil are concerned... Research in the area of AWM is looking at tactics that can be implemented during the summer...

Farm scale research in participation with local grower groups in WA's southern grain production region was undertaken to evaluate a range of frost minimisation techniques... The key recommendation is that growers need to identify frost prone areas on their farm and manage these areas ... The project's suite of strategies provides options for growers to minimise their exposure to frost on prone paddocks and to reduce their financial exposure when frost damage occurs...

" Attachment to Project DAS00017 Reducing the impact of climate variability Frost Table 1: Agronomic practices to reduce frost risk ranked in order of importance Soil Heat Bank Ranking Description Ave temp at Manipulation canopy height 1... Reducing frost risk by increasing the clay content of sandy surfaced soils is the strongest finding in South Australia... Crops sown twice with half the seed sown in each run gives an even plant density and has been found to more slowly release the soil heat so that it can have an impact on air temperature at head height in early morning when frosts are most severe...

227 diverse wheat genotypes were assembled from a targeted survey of international environments and screened for frost tolerance... On the completion of Project UA00073 there is no non-GM research in Australia seeking to deliver genetic improvements to frost tolerance in wheat or triticale, or further improvement in barley... Genetic variation in frost tolerance was previously identified in barley by screening a diverse pool of germplasm selected from environments that may be exposed to low temperatures during flowering and grain filling...
