Farming systems which minimise the movement of soil and water will also minimise the loss of nutrients and pesticides... Overall, the only large difference was the lower Zn when superphosphate was applied... In summary, Mike has found a strategy to help him interpret his yield maps - and is now taking the same approach to other paddocks to maximise fertiliser savings...

Topic Crown rot: Inoculum loads going into 2006; rotation strategies and impacts; Precision row placement to aid crown-rot management... Driftability of amine formulations The 2,4- D products Surpass and Amicide 625 which were used in the trial are considered to be nonvolatile any drift that is associated with these products will be droplet drift not vapour drift... Fungicides as foliar, seed or fertiliser treatments will play a role in the integrated management of this disease until new varieties with improved resistance become available...

Opportunistic 'relay cropping' could be a new transformational practice able to squeeze two crops into a single season.. Australia's northern grain-growing region has a predominantly summer rainfall pattern that imposes constraints on existing cropping systems, but also provides opportunities to maximise the use of available resources such as rainfall, sunlight, temperature and soil nutrients... If a mungbean crop is relay-planted into the maize at maturity there would be a 43 per_cent chance that the crop would receive more than 250 millimetres of rain between December and March (as shown in Figure 2b [bottom]) and thereby yield an additional crop in nearly every second year...

Modelling the risks involved with splitting N application at Bellata over a number of years.. Current best nitrogen management practice is generally to assess soil water and soil nitrogen levels before sowing, estimate yield potential and fertilise all prior to, or at, sowing because it is too risky to apply in-crop... There is a large decrease in frequency from one to two rainfall events, suggesting growers would need to be very organised and be able to respond in a short time frame to take advantage of incrop N application opportunities...

After early work showed success on soil types suitable for pulses, the project is exploring pulse production and profit on a wider range of soils... Mr Moodie says pulses were being put to the test in northern Victoria and the SA Mallee, which have similar average annual rainfalls (about 260 millimetres) and average growing-season rainfall (GSR) of about 170mm... Even if we use the five-year average price - which is far less than the actual 2015 price - lentils came through profitably," he says...

There are two main markets for soybean grain: crushing-grade grain for oil, and culinary-grade grain for the edible trade... Oilseed crushers and full-fat processors usually contract-purchase darker hila varieties... Weed and pest control options are limited under organic production systems and growers need to develop strategies to minimise pest and weed populations before planting the crop...
