SARDI Senior Research Officer, Lachlan Lake (left), and Associate Professor Victor Sadras are looking at ways to improve drought and heat stress tolerance in field peas and chickpeas... Four years ago, the team of Associate Professor Victor Sadras from the South Australian Research & Development Institute began looking at ways to improve drought and heat stress tolerance in field peas, which began with mapping the risk of drought in Australia and its different forms... Management should be to have good growing conditions prior to flowering...

Completed: February 2007 Nuffield Australia Project No: RABO 090 Sponsored by: 2007 Nuffield Australia... Leigh Vial Aerobic and AWD Rice systems Sponsored by: Rabobank 1.. In summary, the main strategies employed to reduce losses are to reduce the period of water ponding within a given growing season, reduce crop duration (provided yield is maintained), cover the soil surface with some form of mulch and establish canopy cover as quickly as possible...

The discovery of a gene that controls the way plants respond to drought could help lead researchers to the "holy grail" for many farmers: a new drought-tolerant, high-performing line of wheat... Researchers at the ARC Centre of Plant Energy Biology, Australian National University, made the significant discovery several years ago of a protein that controls the amount of a signal between chloroplast and nucleus of a plant that regulates its response to drought... Arun Yadav, who works with Prof. Pogson, discovered that wheat plants have up to seven copies of the gene, and each may have slightly different functions related to drought tolerance and the production of the signal in different parts of the plant, like roots, seeds or leaves...
