For example, when water and nutrients are not limiting, sorghum plants that a) intercept more sunlight, b) use sunlight more efficiently to produce biomass, or c) allocate more biomass to grain, will yield more... When water is limiting, sorghum plants that a) access more water, b) use water more efficiently to produce biomass, or c) allocate more biomass to grain, will yield more... For a given amount of above-ground biomass (IR x RUE), yield can be improved by increasing HI...

The project will provide information, germplasm, selection techniques and strategies for breeders to develop high-yielding stay-green wheat cultivars for Australian growers via a "three pronged" research strategy... (1) Understanding the relationships between seminal root traits and other root- and shoot- related traits in determining high-yielding, stay-green phenotype... (2) Providing molecular markers and rapid phenotypic screening methods to allow efficient selection in breeding programs of root- and shoot- related traits required for high-yielding, stay-green wheat...

P4/S9 and P2/S4 were the two most profitable sequences and, overall, the 'maximum profit - P4' philosophy had the highest mean gross margin... It is logical that those growers that have chosen to have no livestock will have no interest in trialling grazing crops... Overall, the data has indicated that for the biserrula inoculant all of the carrier's have difficulties in carrying enough live rhizobia numbers to adequately nodulate the legume hosts after 3-4 months of dry, hot soil...

The trials offer the only direct comparison between lines from the two main global cereal and pulse breeding centres, CIMMYT and ICARDA.. The subsequent data and the seed resulting from this testing is crucial to the continuing development of Australian wheat, durum, barley and chickpea industries.. The CAIGE tour team 2015 hits the road: (from left) Dr Karim Ammar (Borlaug Global Rust Initiative), Dr Amer Dababat (CIMMYT), Dr Wuletaw Tadesse (ICARDA), Dr Suchismita Mondal (CIMMYT), Dr Hans Braun (Consortium Research Program on Wheat) and Professor Richard Trethowan (Plant Breeding Institute)...
