We currently do not have a good understanding of the impact of aphids on winter cereal yield and quality in Australia... There have been relatively few trials that have demonstrated the relationship between aphid infestation and impacts on yield... The location of aphid infestations on the plant, and the timing of these infestations relative to crop maturity have a big impact on how yield and quality will be affected...

Influence of fungicide rate (mean of fungicide products - four site mean) Stem rust control assessed over the four trial sites revealed that using high rates was essential for the control of the disease, even if the fungicide had been applied prophylactically (before infection was visible in the crop)... Influence of cultivar resistance and fungicide application (Prosaro ) on yield and stem rust severity measured on the flag sheath 18 days after fungicide application at early dough (GS82) and assessed at mid dough - physiological maturity (GS85-90) - Bairnsdale, Gippsland, Victoria, 2010... The yield potential for the crop with no nitrogen applied is estimated at GS30 from the results of numerous of trials conducted in that region where NDVI at GS30 is divided by the number of growing degree days (GDD) greater than 0 C since planting, referred to as the INSEY units (in season estimate of yield)...

Part of the project aims to characterise, assess, and simulate the suitability of current genetics for earlier sowing in Australian farming systems across a range of environments using crop management tools such as APSIM... The PhD project aims to identify how molecular changes within the mitochondria allow plants to continue growth at a range of temperatures... Education and research are critical in developing the 'science push' for sorghum as a health promoting food - this knowledge needs to be interpreted and disseminated to the Australian grains industry (farmers, producers), food products developers, marketers and key government organisations y t i c a p a C & s l l i k S g n i d l i u B ...

Precision sowing of cereal crops between previous winter cereal rows (inter-row sowing) has the potential to limit the severity and incidence of CR and common root rot (CRR) in a no-till farming system (Ground Cover Issue 57)... Demonstrated that canola and mustard are excellent breaks for CR in northern New South Wales (NSW)... During the five years of this project , 2986 plots, 4208 individual rows and 986 on-farm samples were established, maintained and assessed for various disease management options...

Matthew Williams from the University of Sydney's Plant Breeding Institute with wheat grown under LED lighting... LED technology is finding increasing applications in plant growth; fine-tuning the light spectrum for cereal growth has taken significant trial and error, and development in collaboration with an LED supply company (Grow Candy)... Many had to be crossed with locally adapted germplasm before they could be used in commercial breeding...

As larvae feed at the nodes, infestation during and after stem elongation can result in weakening of the stems, lodging, and lack of head development and seed-set... The first instar is 0.5 to 1.7mm long and spends 12 to 15 hours crawling down the leaf to the feeding site between the leaf sheath and stem... Look along leaves for eggs and check for maggots or flaxseeds by pulling the leaf sheath away from the stem to the base of the plant...
