Herbicide application around the time of cold weather can further exacerbate the development of yellowing and physiological spotting as it slows the rate that the cereal crop can metabolise the chemical... The chemical tends to concentrate in the leaf tips where it can become phytotoxic resulting in yellowing and spotting (Figure 1 and 2)... Figure 2: Yellowing of barley leaf tips following cold weather and frosts at Condobolin in 2014 and production of brown physiological spots...

In low rainfall areas or in drier seasons rainfall may be too low or variable to get consistent results from delayed N. Figure 3b shows that the risk associated with a delayed N strategy increases at sites were yields were less than about 2,500 kg/ha: the variation in the response to N applied at stem elongation is high and in many cases there are lower yields from delayed applications compared to N applied at sowing... Experiments over many years have shown that there is no consistent difference in the response to different forms of N fertiliser when compared at the same rate of N and the same time of application... Recent work from Victoria suggest losses of N from volatilisation of up to 1% per day with urea and about half that for UAN and ammonium sulphate (Table 1)...

Without appropriate management, diseases can severely impact on the yield and quality of wheat crops in the Wimmera region of Victoria... The Information Note first discusses the integrated management strategies that are required to protect crops from losses due to disease, and then discusses the important diseases of wheat in more detail... For some diseases, a single management strategy is effective, while for others a number of approaches need to be utilised together to ensure effective management...

Since 1999, the tolerance of wheat and barley varieties to registered herbicides has been screened in Queensland... Currently the project focuses on screening the tolerance of advanced wheat and barley breeding lines to a range of commonly used herbicides, in addition to testing newly released varieties of barley, chickpea and wheat with a wide range of herbicides... In 2009, 75 varieties were screened with 30 products, indentifying a number of susceptible combinations as well as a portion with only a narrow safety margin...
