Research is being stepped-up into the efficiency of different soils in delivering nitrogen to crops.. Ravensthorpe, WA, grower Bevan Tuckett with an instrument station being used to map different soil types for their responsiveness to nitrogen treatments and their water-holding capacity... Each of the trial strips cross different soil types as mapped by EM and radiometrics, with observations in 2014 showing significant differences in soil moisture, temperature, pH and organic carbon between the soil types at each site.

Setbacks become a catalyst for efficiency drive.. After moving to Felton from Western Australia in 1997 the couple travelled off-farm for work each day - Vicki to her employment as an agronomist on the Central Downs and Andrew to his job in Toowoomba as an agricultural engineer... Over the years Vicki says they have "had a go" at growing sorghum, sunflowers, maize, millets, wheat, barley, oats, canary seed and chickpeas...

By Victor Sadras (SARDI) and John Angus (CSIRO) At the end of the season, many graingrowers and agronomists calculate water-use efficiency to determine how effective they were in turning water into grain... A worldwide comparison has indicated that care should be taken when interpreting water-use efficiencies of 10kg grain per hectare per millimetre of rainfall as evidence of poor management... To answer the questions, we compared the water-use efficiency of wheat in south-eastern Australia with that of crops grown in dry regions of the world, including the North American Great Plains, China's Loess Plateau and the Mediterranean basin...
