There is an array of resources that irrigators can access to enhance their irrigation knowledge and the profitability of irrigated grain production: Cotton and grain irrigation workshops Cotton and Grain Irrigation Website WATERpak.. They have produced a number of resources that growers and consultants can access to advance their knowledge of irrigation management and maximize the profitability of irrigated grain production... The Cotton and Grain Irrigation website (established under the National Program for Sustainable Irrigation funded Irrigation Knowledge Management project ) provides irrigators and consultants with the latest information on irrigation...

In a survey of 134 paddocks across the northern grains region during 2003-06, we found that 41% of sunflower crops were sown into a long fallow following a winter cereal (wheat or barley), 25% of crops were sown into a short fallow following sorghum, and just 13% were double cropped into wheat or barley stubble (L Serafin and S Belfield, unpublished)... Further trial work is needed to provide additional data to develop our understanding of the full impacts of sulfur nutrition... The results suggest that sunflower oil contents may be more specifically targeted and fertiliser N inputs more accurately determined for optimum profitability...

Thirteen developmental and commercially available seed applied fungicides were evaluated in the glasshouse and the field for their potential use in reducing SFNB severity... Four commercially available barley cultivars (Barque ,A Cowabbie, Schooner ,A VB9104) known to possess either complete, seedling or adult resistance to SFNB were evaluated in the field... In the glasshouse seedlings from the DPN (wheat), EBDSN (barley) and/or NVT (wheat and barley) lines were evaluated for reaction to yellow leaf spot (wheat) and spot and net forms of net blotch (barley)...

Research was undertaken within the project and published in scientific journals to contribute to the management of important diseases, such as crown rot (CR) in wheat and spot form of net blotch (SFNB) in barley... The project provided disease screening capability to the National Variety Trials (NVT) and plant breeders to assist with the development of disease resistant cereals and to provide robust disease resistance ratings for industry... In summary the following were produced within the project: 11 scientific publications...

Livingston is one of few varieties that has moderate tolerance to root lesion nematodes (RLN), along with other desirable features... The researchers concluded that where Pt combines with high levels of crown rot (a common scenario), yield losses can be exacerbated if varieties are susceptible to Pt. Instead of a 10 per cent yield loss from Pt in a susceptible variety it could be 30 to 50 per cent if crown rot is combined with a Pt-intolerant variety...

A disease control model for crown rot in Victoria and South Australia (SA) which provides crop management recommendations to reduce the build-up of Fusarium inoculum and avoid sowing into high disease risk situations... Crown rot is highly spatially variable, so intensive and extensive sampling programs were undertaken to assess the the reliability of results produced using current sampling protocols... Intensive stubble and soil sampling was used to assess the scale of spatial variability of crown rot and whether taking soil cores in a row crop was causing "spikes" in results...

Durum wheat growers urged to stay ahead of crown rot risk.. Growers of durum wheat are being encouraged to test their paddocks for the soil-borne disease crown rot before embarking on this year's sowing programs... The potential yield loss due to crown rot is much greater in durum than bread wheats, so paddocks reported with a medium or high risk are switched to bread wheat, as part of their risk management strategy...

NGA have been involved in 22 field trials since 2007, in collaboration with Steven Simpfendorfer I&I NSW, evaluating the impact of crown rot (CR) on a range of winter cereal crop types and varieties... During 2007 & 2008 a common series of 5 bread wheat varieties, 4 barley varieties and 1 durum were evaluated in all 18 trials... 2. Less apparent range in variety Pt tolerance than seen for bread wheat Figure 5 shows the variety yield performance compared to EGA Wylie for all varieties evaluated in both 2008 and 2009...

Caption: DAFWA research officer Martin Harries says the GRDC-funded Focus Paddock project in WA has identified no adverse wheat productivity impacts of expanded canola plantings at the expense of legumes in crop and pasture sequences... In the northern region, two years of cereals-one year of lupins-one year of canola had an average GM of $280/ha.. Rotations with two years of canola and two years of cereals (W-C-W-C) were popular in the southern agricultural region and had an average GM of $340/ha..
