New canola packages delivered to growers.. Research is delivering agronomic packages to Western Australian growers so they can optimise the performance of canola - a valuable break crop... In 2015, experiments were expanded to include: agronomic considerations of growing F2 hybrids in low-rainfall areas the impact of wider (50-centimetre) row spacing precision seeding aphid management tolerance of canola varieties to residual cereal herbicides and in-crop herbicides very late nitrogen timing in high-rainfall areas aluminium tolerance of canola varieties time of sowing in the Geraldton Port Zone suitability of varieties to direct and delayed harvesting canola phenology..

" Using soil moisture probes to make better farming decisions 20 November 2014 South Australian grain grower Tom Robinson, Halbury, talks about his experiences using soil moisture probes on the family farm... The way 139.189: I'm looking at it now is that possibly we might be able to grow a winter cover crop 143.049: to make more ground cover and also have a diverse mix of a cover crop in there, and 148.4: then we'll kill that crop and then sow sunflowers into it... We're drying out 166.43: our profile; by having a winter cover crop we're growing more cover, more ground cover; 171.769: we're creating more diversity; we're getting a legume back into our system; and then we're 176.209: also able, by doing that, to grow a different crop, a summer crop, which is hopefully better 183.7: for our end goal which is soil health...

Their strategy is to fill an autumn stockfeed gap as soon as crops get away after the season break, deferring grazing on pastures for feedbase and stocking rate management, without compromising grain yields at harvest... "Grazing a proportion of our crops allows us to lock up pasture paddocks to provide high-quality and quantity feed for weaners later in spring," Andrew Kenny said... "Sowing date is the key to using crops to fill the autumn feed gap as soon as possible and if there is a late break, the grazing window can be vastly diminished," Mr Kenny said...
