University of Adelaide's Dr Gurjeet Gill says growers in the Pinery fire zone will need to seed quickly following the sprayer to avoid problems with drifting... Growers with bare soils affected by fire are being asked to be mindful of pre-emergent herbicide rates ahead of seeding in 2016, with a lack of organic matter on the surface meaning chemicals will penetrate the soil more readily than normal...

Soil monitoring important following fire.. Soils affected by fire can have their microbial buffer against diseases weakened... While some plant pathogens may be reduced following extreme fire events such as the Pinery fire in South Australia's lower north region last year, growers affected by fire are being urged to monitor nutrient levels and soilborne disease pathogens in the lead-up to and during the 2016 growing season...

From a national perspective, the 2015 winter season harvest was a collation of extremes: from districts reporting some of the best harvests in years, to drought-affected districts hit by rainstorms, and the fire tragedies in WA and SA, which have devastated some farming districts.. A cropping landscape denuded by fire and wind storms has created a severe erosion issue for growers in the Scaddan district north of Esperance, WA... Pulses tended to be affected by heat stress and short podding periods, but high commodity prices meant that, overall, these crops performed well...
