The Grains Research Development Corporation has commissioned this review as an update of the Graham Centre Monograph No. 1, ' Stubble Retention in Cropping Systems in Southern Australia: Benefits and Challenges '... The aim is to identify the research, development and extension (RD&E) gaps of a current GRDC investment ' Maintaining Profitable Farming Systems with Retained Stubble ', that involves a suite of local projects undertaken by grower groups in collaboration with research organisations and agribusiness... Report to the GRDC on project DAN00170 < Keep browsing 0 Responses to Developments in stubble retention in cropping systems in southern Australia (Report)..

The stubble management decisions each of these growers made in 2010-2011 were unique to the individual and were influenced by the combination of experiences, cropping systems, agronomic and logistic challenges, and commitment to full stubble retention... The value of grazing crop stubbles to farm profitability was overestimated by the ME value of the intake the value of grazing crops cannot be predicted using energy intake from stubble...

Strategies to manage winter crop stubbles without reaching for the matches Conservation farming combines minimum or no tillage, full stubble retention and diverse crop rotations... From the work, it was postulated that when large volumes of stubble are spread, the chaff and straw interacts, increasing the overall bulk of material affected by air-drag... Using stubble treatments such as cabling, rolling and slashing result in up to 90 per cent control and the stubble is retained...

Developing and assessing agronomic strategies for water repellent soils davies table 1.. It should be noted that the yield responses measured with paired cuts on water repellent areas were quite large compared to the average grain yield advantage for the winged point-paired row system across the whole paddock (200 kg/ha)... Recent research has shown that a topsoil clay content of 3% is sufficient to overcome topsoil water repellence where the organic carbon content is 1% but higher clay contents of 5-7% are required where the organic carbon content is higher at 1.5% (DAFWA Bulletin 4773, 2009)...
