Australian research over 20 years has shown controlled traffic farming (CTF) can improve grain quality and increase grain yields by two to 16 per cent if there are no other limiting subsoil constraints... The Implementing a Controlled Traffic Farming Systems Fact Sheet states that CTF crops are typically higher yielding and are more resilient in very wet or very dry seasons than those with less controlled traffic systems... The Fact Sheet provides practical information on setting up a CTF crop production system, including aspects such as management zones, machinery operating widths, field layout and tillage systems...

Strategic tillage "The key to successful no-till farming into the future is likely to be flexibility and the introduction of strategic tillage," says Dr Yash Dang, a GRDC-funded researcher at the Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts (DSITIA) in Toowoomba... Dr Dang has been evaluating the effects of strategic tillage in no till systems on weeds and soil health. ".. Strategic tillage allows growers to keep most of the associated soil health and labour benefits of no till, with many of the advantages of a tillage system," says Dr Dang...

The level of soil disturbance has an impact on the herbicide trifluralin By Bernie Reppel.. According to researcher Dr Gurjeet Gill, the level of soil disturbance caused by a tillage system has a significant effect on the bioavailability of trifluralin... "Our work has shown that the level of soil disturbance caused by the tillage system has a significant effect on the bioavailability of trifluralin," Dr Gill says...

The impact of tillage varies with the tillage implement used: inversion tillage using a mouldboard plough, as pictured results in greater impacts than using a chisel or disc plough... The approach enabled eight treatments and 32 plots derived from the original trial, which is allowing researchers to assess the impacts of strategic tillage... More research is required to understand the impact of strategic tillage practices on beneficial root zone microbes and the effect of soil disease suppression...

"Windmill grass has been confirmed as glyphosate resistant and is quickly becoming one the region's most problematic weeds in zero tillage summer fallows," Mr Street said... Mr Street says windmill grass has rapidly increased in prominence in CW NSW cropping paddocks over the last four to five years, especially in zero tillage systems... "Windmill grass has shown to be very difficult to control in zero tillage systems with herbicides," he said...
