The above are just a few examples, and there are similar advances being made in other crops, such as a superior new malting barley, Bass , from InterGrain, a plant-breeding collaboration between the GRDC, the WA Government (including the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA), and international companies Monsanto and Syngenta...

Variety trials sow the way to cropping profits.. "Not only did this analysis indicate a large difference in margin, it also showed that in some regions selecting a wheat variety classified Australian Hard (AH) rather than Australian Prime White (APW) was costing growers income," Mr Giles said...
