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...

The project will increase water use efficiency ($/mm rainfall) by 5.0% across participating mixed farms, leading to an increase in regional profitability of $12.0 million ($25,300 per participating farmer)... Sustainability of mixed farming businesses will be improved through reductions in runoff and deep drainage (up to 13%) and increases in soil carbon (up to 7%)... To support growers through seasons both good and bad, the GRDC has established a Farm Business Management initiative which aims to equip growers with the tools and knowledge for managing risk in farm businesses and increasing profitability...
