Heat tolerance targeted in new GRDC funding.. In recognition of the issue's significance to farm profitability, the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) will step-up its quest to understand heat tolerance in crops in a bid to generate improved varieties with higher yield potential... GRDC northern panel chair James Clark said while drought and heat tolerance had been a key investment priority for GRDC for a number of years, industry had called for additional resources to help deliver cereal, pulse and oilseed varieties with significant, sustained and stable improvements in water limited yield potential over current elite varieties...

" WA surveys in 2012 by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), Liebe Group and Farmanco indicate that current lime application falls well below that needed to maintain soil pH levels at the critical minimum levels of 5.5 in the soil surface (0-10cm) or 4.8 in the sub-surface (10-30cm)," he said... Mr Roberts said the soil acidity investment, outlined in the GRDC 2013-14 Investment Plan , aimed to increase grower and adviser confidence in diagnosing acidity limitations to crop growth, as well as increasing lime use... Mr Roberts said all projects in the plan required results to be extended to growers and other stakeholders...

The GRDC is examining the potential for new R&D investments involving tractor- and implement-mounted soil probes, or totally new approaches that don't suffer from the time lags and delays of current laboratorybased procedures... These might, for example, enable growers to measure the soil nitrogen available at the time of sowing and to adjust starter N rates ... While there are risks involved in such research, the potential pay-offs are highespecially with many growers moving to precision agriculture farming methods, which allow them to target fertiliser or other treatments directly to high- and low-producing areas in paddocks...
