Researchers are questioning the merits of early sowing of chickpeas in Central West NSW after trial results show the practice may not result in higher yields despite earlier flowering... Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) district agronomists, Leigh Jenkins, Warren and Rohan Brill, Coonamble told growers at the recent Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Updates the disease risk and the impact of low temperatures on flowering may undermine yield benefits... Disease and frost damage are the two major constraints to chickpea production in the northern cropping region and in both cases sowing date can influence yield through avoidance of cold temperatures during flowering, and to reduce the effect of disease, Ms Jenkins said...

New AHRI research shows that wild radish can adjust its flowering time in response to control techniques.. New research in Western Australia shows wild radish ( Raphanus raphanistrum ) is genetically capable of adapting to changing farming systems by modifying its flowering time to ensure survival... "We need to think hard about how we use our current integrated weed management strategies and continually diversify the way we use them," he says Dr Ashworth suggests rotating the seeding order of paddocks, such as seeding the first paddocks last the following season, and using harvest weed-seed control strategies with highly competitive crops...

The use of mechanical weed-seed control for wild radish at harvest may see plants select for earlier flowering types.. Dr Michael Ashworth, formerly of the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI), has conducted GRDC-funded research into the adaptability of flowering time and growth rates in wild radish ( Raphanus raphanistrum )... In order to manage the growth habit of wild radish, Dr Ashworth reasons that once weed seedbanks have been reduced to manageable levels, the use of harvest weed-seed collection might even be able to be periodically suspended...
