KEYMESSAGES Grazing of both cereal and canola crops in winter did not significantly reduce grain yield and quality in five out of seven on-farm trials in 2011 Grazing of both cereal and canola crops in winter provided between 157 and 509 DSE grazing days per hectare of grazing value.. The aim of the on-farm trials, funded by the Grain & Graze 2 project, was to determine the impacts grazing of crops in winter had on subsequent grain yield and quality, production factors such as weeds, disease and nutrition, and livestock carrying capacity... Weed and disease pressure was measured for both grazed and ungrazed areas of each crop (data not presented ), but differences were minor...

There are two series of trials that will be reported in this paper... The 2012-13 trials investigated interactions between N and sulphur at each site only the N responses will be reported ... Across the 3 seasons of trial work only one significant increase in grain yield was recorded in the 2005-07 seasons (Table 3)...

There were limited yield responses to topdressing N in 2005 and 2006 (1/11 sites) Top-dressing resulted in increases in grain protein rather then grain yield indicating that N application needs to occur before the 8 leaf stage to maximise yield responses... The aim of the research was to determine whether in-crop N application is a useful practice in wheat and sorghum for farmers in the northern cropping zone... In contrast to grain yield, grain protein showed a more frequent increase with top-dressing indicating that N application may have occurred too late to contribute to yield...

Project No.: DAW 672 Paper reviewed by: David Minkey and Abul Hashem Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 20.. The negative impact of Raptor and Spinnaker on herbage production observed in the 4 advanced breeding lines (Crop Updates 2004) was not reflected as lower seed set... Overall, 2,4-D and Gramoxone were the most damaging to legume seed production; this reflected the impact of these treatments on herbage production (Crop Updates 2004)...

The period from sowing to flowering for TOS 1 and TOS 2 averaged across all six varieties was roughly the same (110-111 days to flower), whereas TOS 3 averaged 96 days and TOS 4 averaged 85 days to first flower, showing that the vegetative period before flowering is reduced as sowing time is delayed... Analysis of the results showed that there are significant differences between varieties in their overall performance, and also between the four times of sowing, but that there is no interaction between sow time and variety, since each variety behaved relatively the same at each sow time... Further research will be conducted over several seasons to develop sound recommendations for the region...
