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...

New pulse varieties with improvements in adaptation to low rainfall environments are now available BUT sound crop and paddock selection along with correct and timely agronomic management practices are still essential to reduce production risks... It is important that growers follow standard pulse management guidelines for the crop and variety chosen... Lentil and chickpea growers in particular can benefit from on farm storage as it can assist in attaining the highest price for grain in some seasons and allow crops with poor quality issues (poor colour, wrinkled seed) or contaminants to be harvested quickly and stored until appropriate cleaning and marketing can occur...

Soil moisture probes like any other component of precision ag can help people confirm decisions or take decision making to another level... Management decisions determining crop type, inputs such as nutrition and disease control are the ones identified where knowledge of deep soil moisture levels may assist with risk management... The objective is to demonstrate the capability of soil moisture monitoring technology with remote communication systems to display soil moisture data from key cropping regions across Victoria and determine how this information can be used by both agronomist and farmers...
