The GRDC is urging growers to be on the lookout for any weeds that should be controlled by glyphosate but which survive... "This is a huge concern to Australian grain growers because this highly competitive weed has been becoming a major problem in reduced-tillage farming," says Associate Professor Chris Preston, chair of the Australian Glyphosate Sustainability Working Group and leader of the University of Adelaide team that confirmed the result...

Securing winter seed supplies will be foremost on the minds of those northern growers lucky enough to receive soaking autumn rain... Put simply, "know your paddock", "know your varieties" and sow ... Another important consideration for growers is to ensure that the variety selected has the correct maturity to correspond with planting time to minimize the risk of crop damage from frost...

After two years of trialling grazing barley, a West Australian northern wheatbelt family is this year making dual-purpose crops a major component of their profit strategy.. "Stock prices were strong last year, so we could gamble on the potential of losing some crop yield if the barley was compromised by grazing - but that did not appear to eventuate," he says... "Grazing a proportion of our crops allows us to lock up pasture paddocks to provide high-quality and quantity feed for weaners later in spring," Andrew says...

To manage the issues, Andrew and Gina Kenny and Andrew's parents Mike and Sara are using a range of short-term mitigation and longer-term amelioration strategies... Andrew says clay incorporation is the most effective amelioration remedy, producing significant crop yield increases where it has been used on about 300ha... "The paired-row seeder effectively has 50 per cent more seeding row, which increases the chances of seed landing in wet soil, and the wings means it potentially grades the water-repellent soil out of the wider furrow better," Andrew says...

Sowing strategies could boost crop yields on sandy soils.. Research is demonstrating the potential for sowing strategies to significantly improve crop productivity on sandy soils in the southern cropping region... Dr Therese McBeath from the CSIRO in Adelaide (South Australia) and Dr Jack Desbiolles from the University of SA have been involved in a collaborative research effort that has produced new insights for grain growers in areas of low rainfall and sandy soils...
