Although a high-risk crop, oaten hay has the potential to outperform all other cereals with respect to gross margins... The widespread use of genetic analysis in agriculture is limited by economic factors... In the short term, fungicides used at seeding (seed dressings or applied in-furrow with fertiliser) and foliar fungicide sprays will mitigate risk and minimise losses...

Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, 60-70 per cent of flour is used in traditional flat breads, 20-25 per cent of flour is used in western style breads and 5-10 per cent is used in cakes and biscuits... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil...

KEYMESSAGES Incorrect use of phosphine since the 1950s, has led to escalating resistance in stored grain insects which threatens the continued use of phosphine at the farm level... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil... When running a trial it is important to: 1...

KEYMESSAGES Lucerne is capable of using large amounts of saline groundwater but its rate of dry matter production decreases as groundwater salinity increases... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 131.. Overall, autumn cleaning date proved to be very robust as serradella emerged over a very wide time period (April to August) at both sites...

Canola sown at Pindar as part of the GRDC RCSN early sowing trials in 2015... Trials in Western Australia's northern agricultural region have shown that if growers want to take advantage of very early (early April) germination opportunities in this region, they will require a range of variety maturity choices to achieve the best yields... Of the six wheat varieties trialled in 2015, at sites near Pindar and Yuna, the slow-maturing ForrestA variety had the highest yields of 4 to 4.2 tonnes per hectare when sown early on 9 April at Yuna...

For example, at Goondiwindi 416 mm of rain fell on 57 days (44 days >1.0mm) between 01 June and 30 November, compared with a long-term average of 263 mm on 34 days (26 days >1.0mm)... Ascochyta blight (AB, caused by Ascochyta rabiei ), Botrytis grey mould (BGM, caused by Botrytis cinerea ), Phytophthora root rot (PRR, caused by Phytophthora medicaginis ) and Sclerotinia rot (caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor ) were widespread and severe in many crops... Timely and thorough applications are critical...

"The main difference between average and top farmers is the occurrence of problems which affect yield," Mr Fritsch said... Water Use Efficiency (WUE) calculations have an important role to play in quantifying attainable crop yields for specific locations and seasons and can assist growers in making crop management decisions based on economics according to Mr Fritsch... Caption: Simon Fritsch, Agripath director, Tamworth, says farmers could narrow the gap between average farm yield and attainable crop yield by ensuring farming systems are robust and effective...

DAFWA wheat agronomy project manager Christine Zaicou-Kunesch with Richard Quinlan, of Planfarm, and Woongoondy grower Gerard Rowe at the GRDC-funded RCSN early sowing wheat trial site at Yuna... Ms Shackley said the trials aimed to determine the grain yield and quality responses of a range of slow, mid and fast-maturing winter and spring wheat varieties when sown in mid-April, compared with more conventional WA wheatbelt sowing times of early and late May... "Most varieties trialled had the highest yields when sown in early May, or the yields were not significantly different between mid-April and early May sowings," Ms Shackley said...
