The conference will bring together Australian and international delegates with an interest in biological nitrogen (N) fixation... Co-hosted by the Australian Society for Nitrogen Fixation, the University of Adelaide and the SA Research and Development Institute and sponsored by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), the AW Howard Memorial Trust, the SA Grain Industry Trust, BASF Agricultural Specialties and Novozymes Biologicals Australia, the conference will be based at the Plant Research Centre at the Waite Precinct, Urrbrae, and will include a field tour to the Mid North of SA... The theme of the event is "N 2 fixation: reaping the benefits of basic and applied research", and the topics of targeted sessions will include the diversity and ecology of N-fixing organisms; molecular genetics and mechanisms of N fixation; N-fixing symbioses; N fixation in terrestrial systems; and increasing fixed N in farming systems...

Australian cereal growers adopting harvest weed seed control systems (HWSC) are driving down weed populations to lower levels on their farms, and extending the life of the herbicides they use... Dr Walsh said the problem of herbicide resistant weed populations globally was particularly severe in production systems where herbicide dependence resulted in a lack of weed control diversity... "Although herbicides remain the number one weed control tool in Australian cropping systems, it is now clear that the inclusion of HWSC systems in weed management programs is enabling weed populations to be driven to very low levels, providing some insurance for the sustainability of remaining herbicide resources," he said...

The five-day conference in Sydney last year was attended by more than 600 delegates from every wheat-producing region in the world - both developed and developing - representing regional, national and international organisations... Conference chair Professor Peter Sharp, from the University of Sydney's Plant Breeding Institute, described in his opening address how wheat continued to underpin food security in a world where climate, pests and pathogens were changing... He noted that growers were seeking robust, higher-yielding varieties adapted to climatic, biotic and abiotic stresses; millers and manufacturers of food and beverage products required consistently high-quality raw materials to ensure the integrity of their products; and consumers of wheat products were increasingly discerning...
