Impact on Market access Production costs Hosts are wheat, durum and triticale Blackened seeds crush relatively easy Infected grain has a fishy smell Import restrictions in over 45 countries If established in Australia, would reduce grain price by $20 to $55/t.. Impact on Market access Production costs Adults have wings but don't fly Insects are spread in infected grain Insects are only 2-3 mm long Can damage up to 30% grain before it is noticed Phosphine fumigation is not very effective Larvae can survive over a year without food Reduces the number of overseas markets.. Impact on Market access Production costs Many overseas countries have grain insects with 'strong resistance' to phosphine Phosphine gas is main fumigant used in stored grain Threat to exports because resistant insects can survive fumigation Poor fumigation also increases selection pressure Need regular testing of live insects by entomology laboratory..

Early spring is the time when grain growers should be checking all pulse and canola crops for native budworm eggs and larvae as crops reach the susceptible flowering and podding stages... Key factors when considering potential damage from budworm larvae are the number of larvae in the crop, the size of larvae and the time until harvest... A simple formula can be used based on the information provided in Table 1 : economic threshold (ET) = control costs (grain price x grain loss per larva in 10 sweeps from Table 1 )...

While the paper calls for a national and global review (2012) and outlook (2013) for grain markets, there is a far more important underlying message - "Plan don't Predict"... Production - risk of production failure -farmers are well acquainted with production risk -selecting the best farming practices, timing of operations, weather predictions, and varieties for the various risks faced (frost, sprouting, etc) is a key tool to optimise production... A good starting point for any grower is to set a price target, based on a thorough understanding of; their costs of production based on average yields, the margin required to generate their target return on assets, and a realistic expectation of where the market is likely to trade...

Australia's grains industry and its growers, while struggling to cope with too much or too little rain, depending on what side of the country you're farming, were given a refreshing plaudit at the 2010 International Grains Forum, when International Grains Council executive director, Etsuo Kitahara, said Australia was one of the great contributors to global grain market stability over a long period... "Australia is a resilient supplier, despite frequent challenging crop conditions, and its strategic location near the emerging economies in Asia and the Pacific will underpin its future in this region," Mr Kitahara told delegates at the GRDC-supported forum in Perth in early December... Vijay Iyengar, managing director of Singapore-headquartered Agrocorp, a global trading house that annually trades about three million tonnes of agricultural produce, including wheat, rice, pulses, beans and oilseeds, identified Russia and the Ukraine as countries with the most wheat export potential, due to their capacity to lift yields and bring more land into production...

After recording 200 millimetres of rain for the year up to September, Aaron Edmonds is starting to see the potential of the sandalwood trees he has planted to add both commercial and agronomic strength to his grains enterprise... Aaron Edmonds and his family have planted sandalwood trees to diversify income on their 2000-hectare property at Calingiri, Western Australia... Aaron says the sandalwood trees are handy to have in a dry year as they tap into moisture reserves well beyond the reach of annual crops, effectively drought-proofing the soils on which they grow by providing a production alternative...

Trial studying the timing of late nitrogen applications in wheat post-flowering at Brookstead, Queensland... Figure 1 Mean impact of late foliar application of nitrogen on grain protein in 2012... "The trials clearly showed that late foliar applications of nitrogen are capable of lifting protein levels but we were generally unable to generate any net benefit," he says...

Prices dictate profitable nutrition.. A simple framework has been developed to help growers and advisers make better fertiliser decisions based on maximising profits, rather than crop yields... Her analyses of N and wheat prices during the past decade indicate gross margins are optimised when growers and advisers can predict the yield response to a wide range of nutrient rates, rather than those typically used for the expected yield...
