To reduce the cost of combining traits, molecular markers associated with the genes controlling trait expression have been identified... Breeding lines evaluated under DAQ00175 demonstrated that the new germplasm can alleviate more barley production issues than the previous germplasm or introductions from other parts of Australia... Rather than repeat the outline of breeding activities applied under DAQ00110, information about genes and traits in the new germplasm resource is presented...

Buloke maintained its popularity in 2012, with a large increase in the popularity of Hindmarsh and a large decrease in the popularity of Baudin and Vlamingh... Hindmarsh is a very good variety and is the best alternative to malting varieties in environments where the yield potential is below 2.5 t/ha and/or there is a low expectation of delivering malt grade barley... Overall, the big winner was Hindmarsh, increasing in acreage by nearly 120,000 ha in 2012 and pipping both Gairdner and Vlamingh in total acreage...

Japan has moved a step closer to a more open grain-trading system as part of a new Economic Trade Agreement (ETA) with Australia that is expected to come into force in 2015... The trade agreement removes tariffs for these food-grade wheats... Mr Johnson says the new trade agreement creates the potential to increase AH and APW exports, in joint shipments with noodle blends from Western Australia or APH shipped from Brisbane, Queensland, or Newcastle, New South Wales...

Mr Johnson says the new trade agreement creates the potential to increase AH and APW exports, in joint shipments with noodle blends from Western Australia or APH shipped from Brisbane, Queensland, or Newcastle, New South Wales... In conjunction with the opening of trade on feed grains, Mr Johnson says Japan is also likely to introduce legislation to ensure feed grains do not end up in food products...

The increasing area of herbicide resistant ryegrass, wild oats and brome grass on cropping farms in the southern region was a cause for concern there was a need to develop improved weed control options... 1) A range of current, new and experimental soil residual pre-emergent herbicides were evaluated for the control of ryegrass... The group includes the Hart Fieldsite group, University of Adelaide, researchers with similar research objectives, grain end-users, independent consultants and importantly representatives from the chemical companies involved, to ensure that the strategy of crop topping early maturing cereals is made possible...

Nitrogen pushes HRZ barley to 10-tonne yields.. Southern Farming Systems Tasmanian trial manager David Kohler says the aim of the GRDC-sponsored trial was to demonstrate the potential for increased yields, rather than malt barley quality... Overall, grain yield was higher for the mid and high-nitrogen treatments, and protein was highly responsive to nitrogen treatments," Mr Kohler says...

There is market demand for the production of Buloke in all Port Zones, although the demand is seasonally dependent in Geraldton and eastern parts of the Kwinana Port Zone (Table 3)... There is market demand for the production of Vlamingh in the Kwinana (seasonal in eastern areas), Albany and Esperance Port Zones, but no market demand in the Geraldton Port Zone (Table 3)... If accredited, Grange will offer growers improvements in agronomic performance (grain yield, grain quality and disease resistance) over the established malting varieties Baudin, Buloke and Gairdner...

The industry's importance is also reflected in the increasing number of new varieties on offer and this, says Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA) senior research officer Blakely Paynter, is causing some uncertainty for growers in deciding which variety to grow... The guide includes agronomic information about each variety, with a particular focus on new and emerging options... "The aim is to provide information that will help growers with decision-making about whether to grow a malting barley variety to chase a potentially higher price, or a food/feed barley variety that consistently produces high yields and suffers less from disease or weeds," Mr Paynter says...

High rainfall zone growers should consider growing a malting or feed barley over wheat as the first cereal after the break crop, based on data from National Variety Trials (NVT) in the region and Southern Farming Systems (SFS)... Assuming malt quality is always achieved (which would not be farm experience) and not taking into account possible differences in nitrogen applied, Mr Poole says yields of 5.31t/ha for feed barley at a price of $200/t would require a premium of $11/t to break even, taking account of the reduced yield that goes with growing malting barley based on NVT results... Based on the figures, Mr Poole says there is a "huge" case to be made as to whether or not growers in the HRZ should be planting barley as the first cereal after canola and push it harder with more nitrogen like they would with a wheat crop...
