The factors are important in trying to understand the trends measured in this project... Grains Research Update - August 04 Wellington investigations to either confirm traditional research or provide an opportunity to develop scientifically sound methodologies to compare what is happening in a real world situation... I believe using less fertiliser is better, to encourage better micro organism activity, but that's my guess...

Background Since the development of long-season and winter wheats for Australia, well-managed dual-purpose cereal crops have provided opportunities to increase the profitability and flexibility on mixed farms, by increasing winter stocking rates and providing income from forage and grain... Recently we have focussed on investigating and quantifying the benefits of integrating these at the whole-farm scale, including productivity of crop and pasture phases, profitability, managerial flexibility and risk management... We recorded the extra grazing days obtained from crop grazing (compared with continuously grazed pasture) and then the extra pasture production was evaluated for each of the crop-grazing treatments in terms of extra grazing days achieved compared with a continuously grazed pasture (Table 1)...

In a survey conducted in 2011 of sheep producers in the mixed-farming zone of the Hume Livestock Health and Pest Authority (LHPA) in southern NSW, 42% of respondents identified that they had grazed late pregnant or lambing ewes on dual-purpose wheat during the period 2005-2010... Given the above statistics, there is both a perception and a reality of the potential for high losses in reproducing ewes grazing dual-purpose wheat... In a field trial in 2010 with lambing merino ewes on a wheat crop near Balldale in southern NSW we observed only a 1% mortality rate in ewes grazing dual-purpose wheat...

Investigations of animal performance of sheep grazing dual-purpose wheat in southern found 2-fold variations in growth of lambs (daily gains between 0.5-1.0% of liveweight)... Overall, supplementation increased the beef production per hectare by 92 kg and increased returns by $246 at a cost of $22/ha (i.e. 6 c/hd/day)... Differences in the experiment were that stock did not consume the supplement as readily as in the previous experiment, growth rates were already extremely high, averaging 1.6 kg/hd/day in the unsupplemented treatment...

Matt Curtis in a paddock he sowed to Wedgetail in January 2015 to try and get some cover on a sand hill... Matt first sowed Wedgetail in March 2011 on the back of 500 millimetres of summer rain - an extraordinary event - and some encouragement from Mallee Sustainable Farming agronomist Michael Moodie... Matt has already sown about 20ha Wedgetail this year to cover up a sand hill, but he will terminate it in autumn and sow the paddock to vetch...

Early lock-up enables a crop sufficient time to achieve biomass levels at flowering to fully recover grain yield but lower residual biomass at lock-up can reduce crop recovery during a sensitive window around or shortly after GS30 in cereals and bud visible in canola... We believe there is a 'sensitive' window when the crop may still be grazed but sufficient residual biomass is required to allow the crop to reach its critical biomass or leaf area to achieve potential grain yields... We firstly present some results form an experiment conducted at Greenethorpe, NSW in 2013 where a range of mechanical defoliation intensities (hard cut - 5 cm, moderate cut - 8 cm and 'clip' cutting - removing leaves) and lock-up timings were imposed to explore their impact on yield recovery in a winter and spring wheat and canola...

The crop was assessed for Yr infection at a number of stages throughout the trial... ANOVA was used to assess the impact upon yield as a result of the various treatments and the LSD was used to separate the means... In considering scenarios 1 & 2 where no fungicide is applied, so Yr was not controlled pre grazing, the grazing sees an increase in yield of 0.54 t/ha which is significantly different...
