The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has released two new fact sheets to assist southern region grain growers with their spraying practices... The fact sheet offers a summary of herbicide groups and the properties that interact with spray practice, information on how a herbicide works, interactions between nozzle type and formulation or adjuvants, as well as the impact of travel speed and nozzle design...

The Wallup Ag Group held a canola expo in September in Victoria's Wimmera, with support from the GRDC and Pritchard Agricultural Consulting and Extension, to update growers who had dropped canola from their crop rotations during the 13-year drought... The expo gave us a chance to learn about canola again because the varieties and farming techniques have changed.".. In addition to the GRDC, the Wallup Canola Expo was supported by the International Plant Nutrition Institute, Nufarm, Cargill, BCG, Nuseed, Pacific Seeds, Canola Breeders, Monsanto, Viterra, Marcroft Grains Pathology, CESAR Consultants, Pioneer Hi-Bred, the Victorian DPI, Incitec Pivot, Grain Assist and the dedicated members of the Wallup Ag Group...

Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus can be a threat in all environments, and it is recommended that seed be treated with imidicloprid, or crops closely monitored for aphid infestation and sprayed ... In the circumstances using fertilisers that have a higher sulphur content, like MES 10 or Airseeder Superfect, can be beneficial... A fast track project was initiated to demonstrate and evaluate a range of management strategies that Twelve farms were surveyed across the western districts of southern Victoria that were considered suitable as potential trial sites based on grower and adviser recommendations...

In the short term (at least the next 8 years), these crops will in essence provide new uses for old herbicides and old herbicide groups... In summary, the research also indicates that the public is least likely to approve of GMOs that: Benefit a company over the public; Involve gene transfer from species that are not closely related; Are not undertaken for a societal benefit; Are perceived as being possibly harmful to people or the environment; or Is a food over a non-food application... At the outset of the project, a draft strategy was proposed, and it was this strategy that the project team and participant growers/consultants worked towards implementing and evaluating...

Residual herbicides have become an important tool in the war against weeds for many northern region growers in recent years... Growers are urged to carefully consider their plant-back options for the 2014 winter season in country previously treated with in-crop or fallow residual herbicides as label recommendations for replant intervals usually require a minimum amount of rainfall to kick-start breakdown of the residual herbicide... To determine what crop can be safely sown following a residual herbicide application growers need to calculate the herbicide rate, quantify the amount of rainfall from the date of application up until sowing the plant back crop (excluding isolated storm events during summer) and carefully consult product label recommendations...

Simple computer simulations determined the long-term impact on the weed seed-bank of the currently promoted strategies to prevent development of herbicide resistance... The simulations, using locally derived data, showed that the most effective strategy was the combination of crop rotation (summer and winter crops), rotation of herbicide groups and growing more competitive crops... Crop rotation of competitive wheat for 2 years, long fallow followed by 2 years of sorghum, with full control in winter fallows using cultivation, Group M and or Group C herbicides, but no Group A herbicides in wheat...
