keY points a break crop is any crop sown to provide diversity to help reduce disease, weed and pest levels in a paddock... the decision to grow a break crop is also complicated by many interactions through the cropping sequences including disease and herbicide carryovers and economic issues such as capital investment for new equipment or storage... pulses and oilseeds can be damaged in a flight auger, and alternative designs including belt shifters are preferred...

The benefits improve crop health and crop competitive ability against weeds and the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides... When used as a post-emergent product, little of the herbicide gets to the roots and the control of established weeds is often very poor... benefits arise when the weed is prevented from setting seed as there are no increases to the seedbank and, as a consequence, fewer weeds in the future...

Inter-row weed control in wide row lupin using knockdown-based tank mixes Dr Abul Hashem 1, Ray Fulwood 2and Chris Roberts 3, 1Senior Research Officer, Department of Agriculture and Food, Northam, 2Farmer, Meckering, WA, 3Technical Officer, Department of Agriculture and Food, Northam.. Weed dry matter was reduced (Figure 2) but due to the dry season, only marginal increases in lupin yields compared to the broadcast treatments were realised due to the likely competition for water... Enhancing the depletion of the existing seedbank is just as important as controlling seasonal seed set...

KeY POINts early sowing can accelerate establishment and make full use of the growing season but can increase the risk of frost during critical growth stages and hayingoff in a dry finish... in Australia, developmental stages are commonly referred to as 'growth stages'...
