Opportunities for growers to broaden weeds approach.. Opportunities exist for grain growers in the southern cropping region to more effectively manage weeds in retained stubble systems, according to new research conducted by the CSIRO and funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... Caption: CSIRO Senior Research Scientist (Farming Systems) Dr Rick Llewellyn says a new study has highlighted just how costly weed management has become and where there are opportunities to reduce further cost increases...

Opportunities exist for grain growers in the southern cropping region to more effectively manage weeds in retained stubble systems, according to new research conducted by the CSIRO and funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... "The data shows very large differences between regions for practices like harvest weed seed control, crop topping and double knockdown which reflects past differences in the levels of herbicide resistance, but we're now seeing resistance issues becoming much more important in all cropping regions," Dr Llewellyn said...

The paper is based on the concept that Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) systems are the future of the grains industry all cropping industries... The paper discusses some of the important production drivers in the grazing operations, being pasture improvement, crop: stock land mix and stocking rate... Using single variant analysis we can see that profit was largely influenced by yield the variation in yield was heavily influenced by how efficient the water was used rather than just the amount of rain received across all regions...

Dr Neil Fettell checks stored soil water with a neutron probe at Condobolin, NSW - By Nicole Baxter.. Dr Hunt says the extra water in the ungrazed treatments was stored deeper in the profile, which suggests the difference resulted from improved infiltration rather than reduced evaporation... In summary, Dr Fettell says the results from the two trials support earlier research and suggest that stubble is most beneficial where the summer rainfall intensity is high, unstable soil surface structure results in low infiltration rates and slopes are enough to encourage runoff...
