Growers throughout the north have embraced canola as a valuable break crop and oilseed commodity, but the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is aiming to show growers how further opportunity exists to optimise production and profitability... The five-year GRDC project, launched in 2014 aims to provide growers with a better understanding of the drivers behind canola's development to help improve management of the crop and variety selection... Growers and advisers will be able to use information generated from the project to help select a suite of varieties that are suited to sowing opportunities that most often occur in their district and also to exploit early or delayed sowing opportunities as the seasons dictate...

Alan Bowring who is researching the role of head and flag leaf development in contributing to wheat yield... New research is suggesting lower leaves contribute more to wheat yield than is currently the "accepted norm" - under which protection of the flag leaf is the principal determinant of grain yield... In similar cool long season conditions in Australia this also seems to be the case in more difficult hot, dry seasons in northern Australia, Alan Bowring's results suggest that the importance of the flag leaf is about half of what is accepted in the UK. His data indicates that in these dry conditions the earlier leaves preceding the flag leaf (especially the preceding two; flag leaf -1 and -2) have a similar overall contribution to yield as the flag leaf, at least in environments such as northern NSW. Contribution to yield of pre-flowering stem reserves was assessed in the research and is believed to contribute between 16 and 21 per_cent by remobilisation of sugars and proteins to the grain...

Material will help breed locally-adapted wheat.. Australian wheat breeders have been presented with a smorgasbord of genetic material which will allow them to breed new varieties with flowering times specifically adapted to different production areas... Dr Trevaskis said the new wheat lines were being evaluated by the CSIRO this year in field trials at locations including Merredin...
