Losses from leaf rust can be reduced by grazing or cutting rusted crops before the disease becomes severe... Adjust the intensity of grazing to avoid the extremes where the crop is either eaten into the ground, or becomes rank and prematurely runs to head... Avoid grazing the crop when the soil is very wet as the crown and root will be damaged and regrowth will be slow and reduced...

tolerate grazing and can recover to produce a grain or hay crop; provide forage to fill the winter feed gap in the livestock cycle; and facilitate grazing as a canopy management tool... Dual-purpose crops are increasingly being used in the high rainfall zones (HRZs) of south-eastern Australia to provide additional winter forage, and there is growing interest in sowing dual-purpose varieties in the drier regions of southern and western Australia... a late application of nitrogen can help to optimise grain yields...

Summer rain adds to crop management options for season 2013.. Overall, the wheat yielded 4t/ha on average, which included the ungrazed LongReach Spitfire and EGA Gregory wheats... James hopes to investigate the allocation of contract labour more thoroughly in a bid to see if it can allow the family to capture more fully the benefits of any excess rainfall...

" Optimising the integration of dual-purpose crops in the high rainfall zone.. The emergence of long-season, high value, disease resistant wheat varieties that could be grazed by stock in winter with minimal impact on grain yield created a significant opportunity for mixed farmers in the high rainfall zones to increase farm income by increasing winter stocking rates while maintaining or improving the area and value of grain production... As the area of these winter cereals increased, weed and disease control issues have emerged and the recent demonstration that canola can also be managed as a dual-purpose crop in these systems has presented further opportunities to increase the value of grain and livestock systems within the high rainfall zone...

Northern research measures dual-purpose profitability.. Overall, grazing cereals and canola add to income flexibility and profitability depending on crop and livestock markets... Research has shown that winter dual-purpose varieties provide the most grazing biomass, with early-sown, long-season cultivars producing enough biomass to support more than 2000 dry sheep equivalent (DSE) days per hectare in both the Tableland and Northern Slopes areas of NSW...

Light stubble grazing doesn't reduce crop yields.. Light sheep grazing of crop residues over summer in no-till systems does not negatively impact on subsequent grain crop yields, soil health or ground cover, Western Australian research has confirmed... UWA agronomy lecturer Ken Flower said it had been suspected that light sheep grazing did not reduce grain yields and soil health in WA's no-till farming systems, as long as sufficient crop residue was retained to prevent wind erosion and maintain water infiltration...

Dual purpose crops offer a win-win for growers.. Well-managed dual purpose crops have the potential to deliver significant returns for mixed farming operations in southern New South Wales... Not only do they offer a quality feed source for stock when pasture supply tends to be limited in autumn and winter, but they can often be sown earlier than conventional grain-only crops and provide a disease break and additional options for weed control...
