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...

WAWHT 2525A has metribuzin tolerance similar to Blade... When registrations are completed, wheat growers can manage barley grass, brome grass, silver grass, ryegrass, toadrush, wild radish, capeweed, doublegee and wire weeds in this variety by using metribuzin alone or its mixtures with trifluralin and diuron... In previous tolerance work, metribuzin/trifluralin has reduced yields by 30% at Mullewa (1997) and 37% at Merredin (1998), but by only 9% at Mullewa (1998) and 7% at Merredin (1997)...

Impact of soil inversion, soil dilution and claying on non-wetting sandplain soils Stephen Davies, Peter Newman and Breanne Best, Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia.. Soil penetration resistance was measured with a Rimik CP40 cone penetrometer when the soil was at field capacity in both trials... The soil pH deeper in the soil profile was not measured at the time but is assumed to increase to around 5, which is typical for the soil type...
