The aims of the report were to observe, question and review the issues involved with carbon policy across a mix of developed and emerging countries that were involved in international negotiations... The energy sources that we need to develop include: Bio-fuels Biomass Hydro Solar Wind Marine (wave and tidal energy) Nuclear Geothermal Hydrogen & Fuel cells... Soil carbon accounting and measuring models need to be simplified to allow farming business management to engage and comply both domestically and internationally...

We need to analyse farming practices, livestock and arable, in an effort to minimise our carbon footprint and arrest our declining terms of trade... To date, most work on carbon is more "big picture" but to really make an impact we must adopt systems that minimise emissions and maximise sequestrations AT THE FARM LEVEL... Australian agriculture has been proactive in adopting technology in many areas including water use efficiency, compaction management, conservation tillage and livestock management with a looming carbon tax impacting ALL segments of business the pressure to increase efficiency is huge...

This link of pasture consumption to profitability tells us that we must not allow anything to take away from our main source of efficiency if we want to continue to produce milk at a competitive price... Problems with the system include: Cows being pushed to or away from the dairy by bad weather... The main findings are: Robotic dairies need to be adapted to suit the best grazing outcomes in Australia and New Zealand Robotic dairies are quickly becoming affordable Local farmers and municipal waste sites could work together using gasifiers to the advantage of both parties Corporates and local farmers need to work together..

In summary, it could be argued that none of the currently available preemergence herbicides have the required stability in efficacy to become viable alternatives to postemergence group A or imidazolinone herbicides... Overall, 2012 seasonal conditions tended to favour early and mid flowering and maturing varieties...

Viability of unmanned continuous cropping and use of machinery to address labour constraints.. I believe that using GM varieties with non-selective chemical traits, growers would be able to have continuous cropping as an achievable option, instead of being pressured into a pasture phase, hay production or buying expensive equipment for trash collection when harvesting or shielded sprayers and wider sowing rows... Conclusion I believe Australia has a great future in growing wheat and continues to need a rotation of some description (e.g. crops or pasture phase) to maximise wheat quality and yields...
