Summer grains can also lift farm profits by adding income and potentially reducing fertiliser and other costs, he says... GRDC investments in pre-breeding allow breeders and seed companies to progress potential lines to release more efficiently, Mr Clark says...

There is opportunity for growers in the HRZ who have soils with a lower water-holding capacity to make more money by potentially planting a summer forage or cover crop without having any impact on the next winter crop... "Examination of soil moisture probe data from a Grain & Graze grazing trial at Lake Bolac conducted from late 2010 to early 2014 would suggest soil moisture is still lost from the soil surface, even with very good weed control and a reasonable amount of stubble cover," Mr Nicholson says... Mr Nicholson says soils with higher clay content have greater potential to lose soil water from capillary rise than sandy, textured soils...
