reduced soil moisture

Catalogue: GRDC Media
Grain growers in the southern cropping region are advised to turn their attention to early control of summer weeds which rob valuable moisture and nutrients from soils into which next year's crops will be sown... Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Southern Regional Panel member and Swan Hill-based agronomist, Rob Sonogan, encourages growers to get on top of any summer weeds early to increase the effectiveness of weed management measures and prevent weeds from being a larger problem later... "Controlling summer weeds can assist growers in sowing their crops on time and can also minimise disease and insect issues that can occur when a 'green bridge' of weeds and volunteer cereals is allowed to survive over summer."..

Single tillage events can reduce moisture but may boost yields and profitability in the presence of a high weed burden... Dr Yash Dang, Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts (DSITIA) senior scientist (soil and nutrient management) says balancing soil moisture and weed control has been a dilemma for growers choosing to use strategic tillage to manage difficult-control-weeds within an established no-till farming system... Dr Dang said grain yields showed little response to tillage and one-time tillage using either chisel or offset disc tended to increase grain yields at all the sites but only significantly at the Condamine site...
