Bob Henzell ( left ) brought a laugh at the AgForce Grains Dinner during the Brisbane Show in August when he drolly suggested that after more than 40 years in the business he was more "the grandfather" of Australian sorghum breeding, than its "father"... Principal plant breeder with Queensland"s Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries (QDPI&F) and co-leader of the GRDC national sorghum breeding program, Dr Henzell had just been awarded the AgForce/ Graincorp Research and Development Award for 2004... Dr Henzell moved straight into sorghum breeding after graduating from the University of Queensland, with a posting to the Hermitage Research Station, outside Warwick, under breeder Ron Moore...

The incorporation of lime appears to be paying off for some farmers through increased production, and research is underway this season to explore the economics of ameliorating subsoils in the eastern central grainbelt of Western Australia... One-year projects to determine economic rates and incorporation methods for lime in this region are being funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and conducted by Tek Ag at Koorda, and Synergy Consulting at Nungarin... "We're assessing the economic returns of each of these combinations, so farmers can start increasing productivity and profitability."..

The project will coordinate the introduction of diverse barley germplasm selected from both the landrace collections and international breeding programs managed by ICARDA... The project will utilise expertise of breeders in both Australia and ICARDA to identify targeted sets of lines that encompass the desired traits and genes required to assist the ongoing development of improved barley varieties for Australian conditions... Key activities will include: i) importation of a diverse sets of at least 100 lines per year selected from across the ICARDA barley nurseries, ii) importation of up to 50 barley landrace accessions that have been previously phenotyped for disease resistance by ICARDA, iii) importation of up to 250 barley landrace accessions in 2016/17 that have been phenotyped for heat and/or drought tolerance at ICARDA, iv) quarantine of all lines and landraces imported into Australia, v) seed increase of all imported lines on two sites and landraces at one site post-quarantine, vi) phenotyping the imported lines and up to 50 landrace accessions for multiple disease resistances..

"We're assessing the economic returns of each of these combinations, so farmers can start increasing productivity and profitability.".. "Our trials will involve varying rates of lime and different methods of incorporation, and take into account effectiveness of amelioration, cost of lime incorporation, yield per treatment, weed stimulus and the end of the day profit/loss per treatment...

Lockhart forum to discuss key farm business issues.. The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is hosting a special forum this month at Lockhart to help growers in their quest to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of the many facets of managing a farm business... "The Farm Business Updates are a great opportunity for growers to discuss those aspects of their farm operation that are taking on greater significance these days so I urge all growers to get along to this event," Mr Shannon said...

Project No.: DAW 672 Paper reviewed by: David Minkey and Abul Hashem Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 20.. The negative impact of Raptor and Spinnaker on herbage production observed in the 4 advanced breeding lines (Crop Updates 2004) was not reflected as lower seed set... Overall, 2,4-D and Gramoxone were the most damaging to legume seed production; this reflected the impact of these treatments on herbage production (Crop Updates 2004)...

Grower groups band together on acidity.. Factors being considered include which lime products to use, freight costs, application rates, whether to incorporate lime, how to best incorporate lime, lime quality (including neutralising value and particle distribution), effects on nutrient availability and subsequent fertiliser costs, labour costs and machinery costs... The Liebe Group is assessing the effectiveness of lime sand, dolomite, liquid lime and granular lime used in combination with different incorporation methods (including mouldboard ploughing, spading, deep ripping, grizzly discs and offset discs)...

Growers need not use high rates of clay or expensive incorporation methods when claying non-wetting soils to improve yields, new Western Australian research suggests... Dr Davies said that in the latest trials, wheat yields improved by at least 0.2t/ha when growing season rainfall was at least 300mm and low rates of clay were incorporated to a shallow depth at sites including Meckering, Bolgart, Badgingarra, Binnu and Balla... Dr Davies said when moderate (150-300t/ha of clay-rich subsoil) and high rates of clay (300t/ha or more of clay-rich subsoil) were incorporated to a shallow depth, there was little additional yield advantage when compared to the lower clay rates...
