Continuous barley produced the highest gross margin when compared with eight other rotations in WA's central wheatbelt... The five-year gross margin of continuous barley was $1706 a hectare, ahead of lupin-wheat-barley-lupin-wheat at $1620/ha (see Figure 1)... But continuous wheat was showing a trend toward lower vigour, yield and protein and higher weed density due to seasonal and disease pressures (see Figure 2)...

Crop sequence trial demonstrates break crop profits.. The effect of rotation is clear - the canola/wheat/wheat rotation (left) had 31 kilograms of nitrogen per hectare applied, while the vetch/canola/wheat rotation (right) had 9kg of N/ha applied... Rotations in the Mallee that have a break crop for two consecutive years are proving more profitable than rotations with only one break crop...

Break crops deliver profit in low rainfall regions.. Many growers in the low rainfall zone are reluctant to stray away from wheat, which was served them so well in the past, and so it is fairly common for paddocks to have this long history of cereals," Dr Wilhelm said... Figure 1 shows the benefit in yield from a one or two year break in the first and second years of wheat following a break, incorporating the average of all break options...

Comparing yield performance of different broadleaf crop and pasture options as breaks in an intensive cereal phase is the focus of the crop-sequencing project on upper Eyre Peninsula, South Australia... The trial is part of a GRDC-funded project, Profitable Crop Sequencing in Low-rainfall Areas of South-Eastern Australia, which also includes Mallee Sustainable Farming (see above story), Upper North Farming Systems, BCG and Central West Farming Systems... The trial involved growing cereals and different break options in 2011 and 2012 (options listed in Table 1 ) then on 14 May 2013, wheat was sown across all treatments at 55 kilograms per hectare with 65kg/ha diammonium phosphate (DAP)...

Break crops support wheat yields in crop sequence trial.. Dr Malik said that in 2010 - the third year of the trial at Katanning - wheat was sown over all the plots... "Continuous wheat had a higher gross margin over three years than all other sequences except those containing oaten hay," Dr Malik said...

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...

Low rainfall cereal crops can take a break and grow profits.. MSF agronomist Michael Moodie, pictured in foreground speaking at one of the break crop comparison trial sites at Karoonda in SA, says two-year break phases are a reliable management tool for increasing the yields of subsequent wheat crops in paddocks where agronomic constraints are affecting yields of continuous cereals... Mallee Sustainable Farming (MSF) agronomist Michael Moodie, who has been a co-ordinator of the Low Rainfall Crop Sequencing Project, says two-year break phases are a reliable management tool for increasing the yields of subsequent wheat crops in paddocks where agronomic constraints are affecting yields of continuous cereals...

At the First International Crown Rot Workshop for Wheat Improvement held in Narrabri, NSW, the world's leading researchers on the disease met to discuss the progress of their research... The following is a summary of the global research position, as reported at the First International Crown Rot Workshop for Wheat Improvement held in October in Narrabri, NSW, in 2012... Research to date has focused on seed treatments with results showing some control of crown rot on wheat, with the whitehead rate declining significantly...
