A new GRDC-supported research project will investigate novel agronomy and soil water management practices with the aim of increasing profitability and reducing risk in WA's low rainfall zone... Achieving a step change in profitability and reducing risk in low rainfall grain growing areas are the aims of a five-year research project set to commence in Western Australia... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), in partnership with CSIRO, is funding the $6 million project which will investigate novel agronomy and soil water management practices...

National project brings together soils research.. The new GRDC-funded 'Soil constraints initiative - coordination and communication' project has been providing a national approach to the diagnosis and management of soil constraints.. The annual value of lost agricultural production in Australia caused by soil constraints including compaction, sodicity, salinity (dryland and primary/transient), acidity, alkalinity, and toxicity of boron, chloride and aluminium is estimated to be between $1.5 billion and $2 billion a year...

Rob also has been closely involved in rural recovery and emergency response into issues as diverse as locusts, fire, mice, flood and drought... Rob is currently employed part-time within the Mallee consultancy group AGRIvision... Rob says herbicide resistance, nitrogen management, inputs and micro-nutrients are other issues of importance to growers in his region "On top of that, in precision agriculture, we've got a huge uptake of variable rate technology and how that continues to advance is of interest."..

Sustainable management of most cereal diseases can be achieved by avoiding susceptible and very susceptible cultivars... An important part of disease control includes avoiding paddocks with high inoculum loads (either soil or stubble borne)... Fungicides, if used in a timely manner, can provide effective management of diseases when inoculum pressure is high and/orsusceptible cultivars are grown...

Weed management authorities, with support from the Grains Research and Development Authority (GRDC), say the best form of defence against fleabane is an integrated approach combining the use of competitive crops and pastures, grazing, herbicides, cultivation and targeting weeds at the vulnerable stages of their lifecycle... Mr Minehan said it was necessary to enlist additional forms of control, and regardless of the measures used, targeting weeds when young and actively growing was the factor most critical to effective management... Caption: Landholders are advised to also target fencelines and roadsides, as well as crops, pastures and fallow paddocks, in their bid to manage fleabane...
