Leader of the Southern Pulse Agronomy project Dr Jason Brand says growers need to get the fundamentals for their faba beans right up front, such as row spacing, plant density and pest and disease management, to avoid any issues in the canopy later in the season... Growers wanting to avoid issues with canopy management in faba bean crops later this season should first get fundamental measures such as row spacing, plant density, inoculation and pest and disease management right earlier in the season... Dr Brand has been looking at novel ways of reducing the problem in the HRZ, including chemical and mechanical treatments, but says the key message for growers was still to focus on getting the important things right early in the growing season...

On-farm trials show up HRZ potential [Photo by Brad Collis: Kojonup-based researcher Narelle Hill is working with growers to close the gap between current yield realities and the high-rainfall zone"s potential] [Photo by Brad Collis: Kojonup-based researcher Narelle Hill is working with growers to close the gap between current yield realities and the high-rainfall zone"s potential].. Kojonup farmers Tim Mathwin and Daniel Simpson epitomise the new generation of high-rainfall zone growers: young, emerging from grazing backgrounds, and with an eye to the potential their land has for high-yielding, high-quality grain crops... Ms Hill says the Great Southern"s highrainfall cropping zone, which has an average annual rainfall of 450 to 750 millimetres and longer growing seasons, creates the potential for typical yields to be as high as eight tonnes a hectare for cereals and three to four tonnes a hectare for canola - about double the current averages...

Barley is a major winter crop in southern Australia, ranked second behind wheat in area and production... Development of agronomic practices to improve barley production in new farming systems... Key issues will include sowing time, crop establishment, nitrogen response and harvest management of these new varieties, with one aim being to increase the proportion of the crop achieving malt specification...

Delaying sowing by 2-3 weeks after the season break resulted in a yield reduction of approximately 40% at Minnipa and Hart and 10% at Turretfield... Kaspa generally had higher yields at sites where powdery mildew reduced yields of susceptible varieties and Parafield had higher yields at some low rainfall and frost affected sites... Nipper is resistant to ascochyta blight and botrytis grey mould (BGM). It has round seed similar in shape and size to Northfield and is best suited to medium to high rainfall zones where ascochyta blight and BGM are most prevalent...
