I joined the GRDC southern panel mainly to find out more about what GRDC does and how they do business and I have been involved in some of the work they have done... I also wanted to find out more about the investments being made by GRDC on behalf of growers," he says... Climate variability is one such issue, and he wants to see farm management practice evolve to adapt with changing climate conditions that are increasingly impacting on cropping profitability...

Liquid Nitrogen: pros and cons of different formulations.. The use of liquid nitrogen fertiliser is not new to australian grains production... Leaf burn from spotting is dessication to localised areas from too high a salt concentration in the fertiliser solution leading to cell-burst and necrosis, leaf tip and marginal burn is from very rapid uptake and translocation without metabolism of predominantly Urea (can also be from ammonium)...

Table 1: Effect of group B herbicides at recommended and greater than recommended rates on grain yield, plant density, dry matter at maturity and visual plant damage of two lentil varieties at two sites in SA, 2011... PBA HeraldXT (tested as CIPAL0702) has improved tolerance to the herbicide flumetsulam (e.g. Broadstrike , Multitude ), plus reduced sensitivity to some sulfonylurea and imidazolinone herbicide residues... Preliminary results have shown there was no effect of crop top timing on the incidence of mould in lentil in chickpeas high levels of mould were detected in the early crop topping treatment compared to all other treatments regardless of variety used (Table 2)...

Data from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) long-term rotation experiments in northern NSW showed a positive effect of no-tillage on productivity and N2 fixation of chickpea (Felton et al. 1998; Marcellos et al. 1998; Herridge et al. 1998)... The difference between N2 fixation of chickpea and fababean is highlighted in Table 2, using data from the NSW DPI long-term rotation experiments and commercial crops in northern NSW... One of the objectives of the long-term no-tillage experiments of NSW DPI (Felton et al. 1998) was to compare chickpea and fababean in terms of N2 fixation and rotational benefits...

Much of the success has come as a result of new varieties with increased plant height reducing harvest losses and improved disease resistance... The main chickpea varieties grown in the northern grains region of eastern Australia are long-day phenological types (Berger et al. 2004) and as such are suited to late autumn or early winter sowing... Keep browsing 0 Responses to Sowing date and other factors that impact on pod-set and yield in chickpea..

Introduction: Positive and negative experiences from 2007 will help us to learn from the exceptional and diverse conditions that impacted heavily on pulse production and quality across the southern region... Raptor has no minimum re-cropping interval if peas are being sown, but chickpeas, faba beans, lupins and vetch (10 months, > 200mm rainfall), and lentils have an extended one (21 months)... Vetch: There is increasing interest in vetch as a break crop and as a forage crop, and enabling alternative weed control and nitrogen fixation, particularly in drier areas deemed less reliable for other pulses...

Minimise risk of virus by retaining stubble, planting on time and at optimal rate, controlling weeds and ensuring adequate plant nutrition.. These results and a recent report of a closely related polerovirus from Tasmania suggest that it has a very wide geographical range... Soil tests in one 2012 salt affected crop of PBA HatTrick south of Walgett showed chloride levels of 1,770 mg/kg (1:5 H2O) and EC se of 9.8 dS/m at 15-60cm...

He estimates 90 per cent of the 2400 hectares he uses for cropping on his farm does not wet-up on the surface (0 to 10-centimetre layer) during the growing season unless there is a major rain event... Benefits of claying "On the treated areas, we have probably doubled our crop yields in favourable seasons - although seasonal variation makes it hard to gauge what the actual gains have been," Clint says... Clint says a major benefit of claying is that weeds germinate in a tighter period in the first year, allowing an effective first knockdown herbicide application...
