Adelaide forum to set the scene for 2013 cropping season.. Farming systems built to withstand the impact of weeds, diseases, pests, seasonal constraints and market vagaries will take centre stage in Adelaide next month... Caption: GRDC Southern Regional Panel chair David Shannon says the annual Adelaide Update plays a critical role in delivering information, knowledge and resources to farm advisers who can in turn inform their farming clients and prepare them for the season ahead...

SARDI's Dr Margaret Evans says yield loss from eyespot comes as a result of the lesions forming on the base of the stem and lodging... Growers in high and medium rainfall zones across the Southern Region are being asked to keep a look out for eyespot in cereal crops this season after the disease made a surprise appearance in a number of wheat crops in 2015... Yield losses from eyespot are most obvious when caused by lodging, which is when plants infected by the fungus fall over in different directions and form a tangled mess on the ground, making harvesting difficult...

This lack of reliability of rainfall makes screening for grain yield under drought a difficult and costly exercise for breeding programs... Physiologists are less interested in selection for greater yield under drought and focus on trait-based yield improvement where improved water productivity should benefit yield across a wide range of water availabilities... Yields are lower, grain size is smaller and screenings are higher leading to dockages at receival...

Data collected included the supplier's name and address, variety name and history of sample... A high output method for measuring genetic homogeneity was developed by Diversity Arrays Technology Pty Ltd using Plant Breeder's Rights (PBR) samples of current wheat varieties... The system will allow future accurate testing of a large number of samples from all points in the supply chain...

Breakthrough may provide climate-tailored wheat.. The scientists used specially designed natural-light-controlled environmental field facilities to grow two pairs of sister lines of wheat contrasting in vigorous growth and tillering to see how predicted future climates are likely to influence the genetic traits that wheat breeders have been selecting for... Professor Siddique has recently discussed the results with breeders from the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA), and would like to screen Australian wheat genotypes using the natural light controlled environmental facilities so breeders have better access to knowledge about the best parental genotypes to select and develop wheat varieties that thrive under hostile climatic conditions...
