A research project in the Great Southern region has demonstrated that the decision tool Yield Prophet could help local growers maximise crop yields and minimise risks associated with management decisions... "Following a number of extremely variable seasons, many growers in the region have lacked the confidence to implement management practices to maximise yields, and have been taking an approach of 'less risk' for their in-season decision making," Mr Whisson said... Mr Whisson said the benefit of Yield Prophet to local growers over the course of the season was obvious, especially when it came to making nitrogen and fungicide decisions based on forecast yield, as well as providing side benefits such as yield estimates for insurance purposes...

Recent collaborative research work investigating the decision-making tool Yield Prophet , supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), aimed to help Western Australian growers answer this question... Growers accessing information from the sites could easily identify crop progress during the season and adapt their logistics and applications ... According to a report compiled by DAFWA about the work in the Albany port zone, Yield Prophet is a moderately complex program for which new users require assistance, and growers probably need consultant support to get best value from it...

Store soil water to help close the yield gap.. Mr Fritsch says to optimise crop yields for 2016, it is important to pay attention to crop variety choice and rotations, input spending, control of weeds, diseases and pests, soil health, stubble cover and fallow management... Mr Fritsch says in some lower-rainfall areas, a high frequency of lower-yielding crops with small margins may be less profitable to grow than a well-planned rotation that includes some crops grown on long fallow during the change between summer and winter cropping...
