International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) germplasm has the potential to contribute significantly to the development of new wheat cultivars for Australian cultivation... The proposed project will cooperate directly with the proposed "Information Coordination/Communication", "Germplasm Evaluation" projects and the "CIMMYT Germplasm Selection and Export" project to ensure that only that germplasm specifically identified for evaluation and utilization in Australia is efficiently sourced from CIMMYT, fully documented, grown in approved post-entry quarantine facilities according to AQIS Import Permit requirements, and upon release from quarantine seed will be provided to the.. The bread wheat industry in Australia will benefit directly from the success of this project through the earlier and more efficient identification and introduction of the CIMMYT/ICARDA germplasm of most interest to Australian breeding programs...

Much of the uncertainty comes from the variable nature of our climate, whether the enterprise is grazing, cropping, horticulture or bee keeping... Long term data and recent weather data along with seasonal forecasts are valuable in informing growers of system status (e.g. soil water, heat sum, radiation) and probabilities of future events (e.g. planting opportunities, seasonal rainfall, extremes in temperature)... The current version of Australian CliMate has the following analyses: How Often, How Hot -Cold, Season "s progress, How wet N, How likely, How "s El Nino and How "s the Past The aim of this project is:- to maintain the code, data access and server support; - improve security of data access from Silo;- add the POAMA seasonal forecast capability from BOM;- add a Potential..

Lupins provide a valuable pulse component of crop rotations in South Australia (SA) and Victoria (VIC) particularly on low fertility neutral to acid sands where other pulse crops do poorly... The total economic benefit of release and adoption of improved lupin varieties in SA and Victoria is estimated at $3.2million per year... There is slight variation in the actual lines retained for further evaluation in each of SA and Victoria depending on how the respective evaluators (J. Egan and I. Mock) viewed their potential in their respective environments...

CWFS has offered mentoring to Michael during the past two years... In Year 11 Michael spent an average of three hours a week with CWFS to experience what a career in agriculture and research might involve... Michael says tests have shown that soil pH at Ungarie in central NSW has declined from 5.2 to 4.6, causing plant roots to become stunted and not reach their yield potential...

Dr James Hunt, former CSIRO Agriculture senior research scientist, says early sowing works best when there is a full profile of moisture... Dr Hunt, who recently became a senior lecturer at La Trobe University, says there are new varieties under development that may assist in widening the sowing window for growers in areas with a shorter growing season... Former CSIRO Agriculture senior research scientist Dr James Hunt, who now works as a senior lecturer at La Trobe University, says sowing earlier than 25 April is a tactic that complements dry sowing...
