An emerging sunflower crop affected by slugs.. We also had issues with preventing the airflow in the seeder blowing the lighter baits off target and stubble impeding the bait placement making it harder for slugs to find the baits.".. Mr Pilkington believes the application at sowing made a huge difference to bait placement accuracy and the residue managers on the precision planter helped with putting baits onto clear ground for the slugs to find...

A trial in Western Australia's northern grainbelt has confirmed that narrow row spacing can boost wheat yields while acting as an important non-herbicide tactic to out-compete weeds... "Results from this trial and previous research suggests that farmers will benefit from using the narrowest row spacing practical, and I believe this should be a consideration if they are thinking about upgrading machinery," researcher Peter Newman said... Mr Newman, a communications leader with the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) and based at Planfarm, coordinated the trial funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and supported by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA)...

Grower group road-tests subsoil phosphorus nutrition.. The conventional practice of applying 8.7kg/ha of phosphorus in 40kg/ha of starter fertiliser with the seed, about 5cm into the soil, provided a 47 per cent yield increase - almost half the yield benefit of deep phosphorus applications... Preliminary data from the 2014 trials also suggests that subsoil applications of phosphorus at higher rates may provide almost twice the yield benefit of phosphorus applied at low rates near the surface as starter fertiliser...

The results of the experiments have given Jeff the confidence to realise that he does have a viable, cost-effective alternative knockdown herbicide to glyphosate... Double knockdown (T 2.2b, page 128) Weather permitting, a double knockdown is implemented on resistant ryegrass paddocks prior to sowing using two non-selective herbicides (glyphosate followed by paraquat + diquat or paraquat, the choice being dependent upon the range of weeds present)... Helpful advice The Grays still enjoy the challenges and can see that they have made enough progress to feel they are being successful in managing a serious annual ryegrass problem...

The paper is based on the concept that Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) systems are the future of the grains industry all cropping industries... The paper discusses some of the important production drivers in the grazing operations, being pasture improvement, crop: stock land mix and stocking rate... Using single variant analysis we can see that profit was largely influenced by yield the variation in yield was heavily influenced by how efficient the water was used rather than just the amount of rain received across all regions...

Northern region Grains Research Updates coordinator John Cameron reflects on the vast changes that researchers and growers have implemented over the past two decades, and the one problem that just will not go away - weeds.. No-till has become crucial to northern grains production but faces a major weed-control challenge... In the short term, the no-till system will be defended by tactics such as pre-emergent herbicides, double knock using paraquat, and the use of tillage when weeds cannot be or are uneconomical to control using herbicides...
