Caution urged for weather damaged grain.. Grain growers experiencing adverse weather this harvest are urged to ensure that, where possible, the grain they retain for 2013 crop seed has a sufficiently high 'falling number' value... Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) western grower services manager Darren Hughes encouraged growers to pay particular attention to which grain they kept for crop seed, saying weather damaged grain was more susceptible to poor germination, low vigour and degradation during storage and handling...

Trace element deficiencies could jeopardise crop productivity.. Dr Nigel Wilhelm from the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI*) says southern Australian cropping soils are more likely to be deficient in zinc, copper and manganese than other trace elements... Dr Wilhelm said if these trace elements were not managed well, the productivity of crops and pastures could be reduced and further production could be lost through secondary effects such as increased disease damage and susceptibility to frost...

Mace has rapidly become the dominant variety in WA for a number of very good reasons and is unlikely to be displaced in the immediate future... Data was sorted by Agzone (see Shackley et al 2012 for map of Agzones of WA), previous crop, subsoil pH, and/or sowing date to look for any specific adaptation of any of the newer varieties compared to Wyalkatchem or Mace... Recent research has also shown that the Spear type wheats (especially Yitpi) are slightly less susceptible to frost damage at flowering than Wyalkatchem types (Ben Biddulph pers...

Weeds compete against crops for valuable moisture, light and nutrients, but growers can take steps in coming weeks to help their wheat crops fight back and stop the weeds winning... Mr Newman said the seed size of wheat varieties varied considerably and growers should take this into account when calculating seeding rates and plant density... "In the eighth year of using this practice, these growers had no ryegrass in their focus paddocks and have averaged fewer than 1.5 ryegrass plants per square metre ever since," Mr Newman said...
