GRDC GrowNotes show the way for maize.. " the outcomes have traditionally been communicated to industry via media and annual GRDC events like the GRDC Updates for Growers and Advisors," says Mr Clark... Local, timely information "Feedback indicates that growers want more specific information, tailored to their area, in a format they can easily access," says GRDC's Regional Grower Services Manager for the northern region, Sharon O'Keeffe...

High-yielding maize crops require large quantities of soil nutrients... * Maximum rate for growers aiming for a 7 t/ha dryland crop or 10 t/ha irrigated crop from ground that has been cultivated for more than 25 years and has a history of summer crops (such as sorghum, maize, millet, sunflower, cotton) or has been double-cropped with winter cereals Symptoms of nitrogen deficiency include: light green or yellowish leaves, often with a V-shaped yellow area at tips of leaves premature drying along the midrib and leaf tips stunted and slow-flowering plants short and often poorly filled ears... Even if early soil moisture at planting has been adequate to produce maximum leaf area, moisture stress later causes leaf senescence and yield depression...

The day will begin with a presentation by Steve Powell from Market Check on developing marketing plans geared to irrigated crops," Mr Shannon said. ".. Hanwen Wu from DPI NSW will provide some insights into the increasing problem of windmill grass and fleabane weed, and Geoff Raymond from Nufarm will look at the herbicide options available for control of these weeds," Mr Shannon said. ".. Other topics will include the pros and cons of growing cotton in southern NSW, forage brassicas as a new irrigated grazing option, pasture renovation, and a flour miller's perspective on milling wheats." Mr Shannon encouraged local grain growers to set aside the day to attend the Update which is supported by the Irrigated Cropping Council. "..

The Achievable Yields project is aiming to set yield and water use benchmarks for irrigated wheat in the northern region, while also helping growers address the main agronomic challenges that prevent them from maximising grain yield... Reducing sowing rate for lodging control: 2009 trials In 2008, very high seeding rates of 200+ seeds/m2 were used in many locations for irrigated wheat (or approximately 80kg/ha of seed or higher)... Yield and water use benchmarks Preliminary analysis has been undertaken to determine the maximum yields that can be achieved from irrigated wheat in the northern region, and how much water is required by the crop in order to achieve these yields...
