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...

The work showed that Touchdown Broadacre Tm (TD- BA) offered ~96% control but another formulation of a Group M herbicide at comparable use rates only controlled 10% at 52 days after application (DAA)... A group M herbicide @ 2lt/ha followed by a double knock of Sprayseed Tm offered moderate improvement in control (61% control @ 52 DAA)... The summary of the results of this trial is shown in Graph 1 below...

Glyphosate has long been our critical herbicide in enabling effective and economic fallow weed control in stubble conservation farming systems... NB Not all products have a specific summer fallow registration for control of stink grass so the advice is to read and follow the product label in all situations... Roundup CT (glyphosate 450g/L a.i.) was applied at 0.5 L/ha in all trials, at a sub-lethal below label rate, to simulate a situation where resistance to glyphosate was developing...

Finally to the numerous farmers, business people and researchers I met around the world that were also very generous with their time and knowledge, thank you... It is widely regarded that cactus is high yielding, highly palatable and a readily available source of carbohydrates but lacks crude protein and crude fibre to get the best performance out of cactus it needs to be supplemented with a cheap source of fibre and protein (Nefzaoui, Salem, Salem, 2000, p512 - 516)... Develop a farming operation where a normal budget would rely on less than 50% of traditional farming system to generate the income reducing exposure to financial risk in droughts...

Field trials examined the persistence of weed seeds under a range of treatments, including different crop rotations... The control of summer fallow weeds is becoming more complex... The impact of different forms of tillage on seed burial and subsequent emergence was investigated in three field and two pot experiments using seed of barnyard grass, feathertop Rhodes grass, windmill grass, liverseed grass, sowthistle and fleabane...

The recent development of Group A and M multiple-resistant annual ryegrass serves as a stark reminder that persistent use of any herbicide mode of action group can cause resistance... The purpose of the experiment was to determine the best Group A treatments for the control of glyphosate-resistant barnyard grass, when treated at the mid to late tillering growth stage... The purpose of the experiment was to confirm which Group A herbicides provide satisfactory control of glyphosate-resistant barnyard grass under field conditions, and to compare results with those obtained from the glasshouse experiment...
