The GEKKO Phenotyping Tractor - an all-seeing mobile platform that will speed up crop improvement... The objective is to better understand why a particular variety (genotype) performs a certain way, then address identifiable causes for underperformance that can be rectified or isolated from other data, so a genotype that might otherwise have potential is not simply discarded on the rudimentary evidence of grain yield alone... Professor Hammer's job is to run the data collected by the phenotyping tractor through analytical models to identify 'confounding' factors and stop them from obscuring the identification and potential use of other genetic gains that are bound to exist in the tens of thousands of genotypes that are screened...

Uncertainty about the effects of rising atmospheric CO 2 levels on crop growth, water use, grain yield and quality led to field experiments being conducted in the Australian grain belt to obtain data on the response of wheat crops to elevated carbon dioxide levels... The collaborative project between the Victorian Department of Primary Industries (Vic DPI) and the University of Melbourne (UM) delivered a national Free Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (FACE) facility consisting of a core of 8 x 12 m rings at Horsham, supplemented by a smaller system at Walpeup (Mallee), within a region of strategic importance to the grains industry... The results from this type of research can inform crop breeders about traits responsive to eCO 2 and provide them with information to improve future lines of wheat...

WhopperCropper is a simple software tool that facilitates simulation-aided discussion of growers exposure to risk when comparing different management options... Farmers in all regions of Australia endure widely varying rainfall conditions while needing to make critical management decisions prior to every cropping season... WhopperCropper: takes high-tech crop modelling and climate science from the research realm to field application quantifies the effects of different crop input options and pre-existing soil and water resources allows exploration of the effect of the SOI phase and how it interacts with other management inputs provides a high-quality graphing capability of the scenarios for use with grower meetings and timely publications allows the expression of the range of outcomes in terms of gross margins...
