Durum production in the southern region fell in the lead-up to this project... Samples from affected trials have been sent to a DNA laboratory for a quantitative assessment of fungal DNA. Irrespective of the mechanism, this germplasm appears to represent an improvement in field performance under disease pressure... Further research is required to complete this study and develop a more precise understanding of how the environment affects yellow pigment content...

While most of WA has seen increases of mean temperatures in the past 50 years, trends in mean spring temperatures varied by location... Sites with smaller trends in mean spring minimum temperatures had an increase in low temperature extremes (ie 'frost risk')... A small number of locations have experienced a slight increase in the length of the 'frost season', with the decade of the 2000s showing later dates of the last low temperature event...

Urease inhibitors act by slowing the rate of urea hydrolysis (the process by which N is released from a granule), by inhibiting the action of the enzyme urease, and by doing this the elevated pH hotspot that occurs around the granule is lessened and this reduces the risk of NH 3 loss... The paper presents laboratory and field experiment data that investigated the impact of the urease inhibitor NBPT (Green Urea TM 7 or 14 in Australia), on rates of urea and NH 3 loss... The experiment showed that NH 3 loss in autumn was greater than in spring (Table 1) and that whilst the inhibitor was effective at both times, the real benefit in terms of N saved was only seen in autumn...
