The GRDC-Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) 'Canola Variety Guide for WA 2015' summarises the most up-to-date agronomic and commercial information for new and existing varieties... The 'Canola Variety Guide for WA 2015' , compiled by DAFWA development officer Jackie Bucat, compares the performance of these systems in each region to TT with RR and imidazoline tolerant (IT - or Clearfield ) lines - and includes some older varieties for benchmarking... OP and hybrid varieties, overall, performed similarly in the low rainfall area but the hybrids outperformed OP lines in the high rainfall area consistently...

Caption: GRDC western panellist Gemma Walker says GRDC-funded research into identifying and developing canola varieties and management tactics to maximise yields across WA is continuing this year by CSIRO and DAFWA... Caption: At most DAFWA-GRDC trial sites in WA's eastern grainbelt, delaying nitrogen application until eight or 12 weeks after sowing (near to flowering) or splitting applications produced similar yield results to earlier times of N application... According to Mr Seymour, at most sites over the two years, delaying N application until eight or 12 weeks after sowing (close to flowering time) or splitting applications produced similar yield results to earlier times of N application...

Traps help forecast disease.. " the sites represent a climate transect, as we want to establish the relationship between the release of spores by the pathogens and the climatic conditions they are responding to," Dr Kimber says... "As we compile the spore release patterns for the different pathogens mapped over time we will look for correlations with weather conditions; eventually we would hope to be able to forecast disease outbreaks and provide growers with disease alerts, but this will not be an immediate outcome from this project."..
