Subsequently a key extension publication was developed that outlines the considerations required prior to the use of animal manures and organic wastes in grain cropping systems... The research highlights that a large volume of available data exists on the use of manures and organic amendments in cropping systems... Higher rainfall cropping zones (more than 600 mm/year) have the greatest capacity to store soil carbon (18 tonnes per hectare compared with 2.5 tonnes per hectare for rainfall less than 600 mm/yr) and are more likely to positively respond to organic inputs...

The project was designed to provide information about the ability of biserrula ( Biserrula pelecinus) pastures to contribute to grain production systems in the medium and low rainfall wheatbelt areas of Western Australia... Pasture crop rotation trials demonstrated that biserrula and its rhizobia are capable of persistence through at least three consecutive cereal crops, allowing farmers to crop more frequently and still retain legume dominant pastures... Further work is required to identify what appears to be a secondary plant compound in biserrula that can induce photosensitisation in some environmental circumstances...

Once we've completed an analysis of your business, our counsellors can help to build cash flows, forecasts and budgets so you can determine what lies ahead and make decisions based on valid information... As price received increases the working capital requirement reduces which indicates less risk associated with the business... The ORM data included 14 Victorian Mallee farms and showed that over the last 10 years their income had increased and costs had doubled while the surplus remained similar...

Adding value to grain sheep and lambs and crops through the use of.. The aim of the study was to look at ways of increasing profitability for the export grain growing areas of Australia through the use of livestock... The success of this part of our business was the main reason behind choosing a study topic that looked at increasing the productivity of this farming system that we had implemented, and ensuring that we were achieving optimal returns for our livestock by enhancing their management systems...

Grain sorghum is a major component of the cropping systems in NE Australia... Approximately one third of the crop is grown in each of NE NSW, southern and central Queensland... In Australia sorghum is a feed grain for cattle, pigs and poultry; also some goes to pet foods and in the near future to ethanol production...

They selected, as case studies, clients successful at both stock and crops and they entered their production data onto a spreadsheet... At the break-to-the-season put the sheep into areas saved for them, eg permanent pasture areas, saltbush, perennial veldt grass, standing crop, or into a containment area... Once the pasture gets to 3cm high, release the sheep and hopefully they will have feed in front of them for the rest of the season...

Craig Thompson bought a WEEDit precision sprayer seven years ago and says it has become a crucial tool for summer weed control... A stark drop in growing-season rainfall in WA's northern wheatbelt means growers have to get crop roots much deeper into the soil profile to access moisture.. Craig says that wheat-on-wheat, with the aid of Clearfield wheats, has simplified the system and allowed him to concentrate on the single most important element - holding on to every drop of rain that falls...
