high biomass

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The introduction of cover crops into no-till farming systems can provide increased soil cover, add diversity to the system and smother weeds... The primary function of cover crops is to produce biomass and provide continuous ground cover that protects the soil from erosion, conserves moisture, suppresses weeds, adds diversity, promotes soil biological activity and increases soil fertility through nutrient cycling... The main outcome of this project was to encourage growers to use cover crops in the rotation...

Caption: GRDC western panellist Gemma Walker says GRDC-funded research into identifying and developing canola varieties and management tactics to maximise yields across WA is continuing this year by CSIRO and DAFWA... Caption: At most DAFWA-GRDC trial sites in WA's eastern grainbelt, delaying nitrogen application until eight or 12 weeks after sowing (near to flowering) or splitting applications produced similar yield results to earlier times of N application... According to Mr Seymour, at most sites over the two years, delaying N application until eight or 12 weeks after sowing (close to flowering time) or splitting applications produced similar yield results to earlier times of N application...
