The agronomic value of break crops needs to be considered across the whole rotation not just in respect to the year of production... Influence of farming practices As part of the Profitable Crop Sequencing project in WA, a review of previous research was commissioned, which looked at over 150 crop sequences from trials run in WA since the 1960s... A 2008 review by CSIRO of 700 Australian and overseas experiments on break crops showed the yield of wheat was consistently higher after a break crop than after a wheat crop...

In summary VSAP is: A summary of the key reasons for the release of the new variety, including strengths and weaknesses, and how the new variety should be managed relative to current common varieties... Overall, Total N fixed was strongly linked to dry matter production and rainfall... Overall, early removal is still likely to be the best option on heavy clay soils...

I strongly believe that with good management in the right environment, livestock can complement a cropping enterprise in a number of ways and vice versa... The Environment Conventional cropping systems in the Central USA have low levels of biological diversity and rely heavily on synthetic fertilisers and herbicides... An experiment run over 10 years by Texas Tech University USA, has shown that an integrated crop/forage/livestock system compared with a cotton monoculture has decreased nitrogen use by 40% and lowered irrigation water use by 25% whilst maintaining similar profitability between the two systems...

For grain growers who thought they were already shovelling out the nitrogen every year, 's a sobering thought... Dr Angus says the rate of decrease appears to be linear over 10 to 30 years but after about 50 years, turns out to be curved and soil N eventually flat-lines... Dr Angus says it is likely that gross margins underestimate the profitability of the mixed pasture-crop system by not accounting for other synergies between pastures and crops...

The result confirms the conclusions of another experiment comparing crops growing after pastures conducted in a wetter sequence of seasons... The expectation is based on results showing that pastures containing the perennial grasses phalaris and cocksfoot had higher yields than those based on lucerne... If pastures containing perennial pastures are more widely adopted, the expected economic benefit will be a yield advantage of about 10% over lucerne-dominant pastures...

Soils naturally contain beneficial fungi that help a crop access nutrients like phosphorus and zinc... Many that are associated with crops also form structures called vesicles in the roots and are called vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM)... VAM inoculum builds up during cropping but not all crops produce equal quantities of inoculum...
