Junee grains forum tackles cropping issues for season 2011.. The Update also included a presentation by Beckom farmer Mike O'Hare who described the sometimes exhausting but rewarding pursuit of integrating livestock and cropping, while Craig Day of Spray Safe & Save at Cowra outlined the complexity of successful spraying," Dr Blanchard said. ".. Overall, the information presented to growers at the Update was well received and should go a long way in supporting them over the coming months as they embark on the 2011 cropping season."..

Research strategy to grow out of dual-purpose crops review.. Results from the survey will play a pivotal part in building a future national research strategy aimed at assisting mixed farmers in extracting maximum value from dual-purpose crops, which can be grazed in the early vegetative stages before continuing on to produce grain... Mr Giles says that while dual-purpose crops have been popular for several decades in high-rainfall zones, providing winter stockfeed before continuing on to produce normal grain yields, their use is now extending to traditional grain belts as more grain growers introduce livestock into their cropping operations...

During presentations at the recent round of Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Grains Research Updates, CSIRO senior farming systems scientist Dr Lindsay Bell said significant opportunities existed to improve the efficiency of farming systems with only 29% of surveyed crop sequences achieving 80% of their potential water use efficiency... He said farming systems were also under mounting pressure from herbicide resistance, declining soil fertility and increasing soil-borne pathogens, requiring effective responses within the farming system to maintain productivity... Assessing the performance of this year's winter crop can offer enormous insight into the success, or failure, of disease, pest and weed management programs and those lessons can benefit the farming system for years to come...
