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...

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...

Oat research to lift options for low rainfall areas.. Oats make up about one per cent of land use in Western Australia's eastern wheatbelt.. "There is growing interest in expanding oat production in these lower-rainfall areas to diversify rotations and help manage seasonal rainfall variation, declining grain prices, higher input costs, frost risk in susceptible paddocks and increasing weed burdens," he says...

GRDC Western Panel deputy chair Dr Mike Ewing says the GRDC recognises the importance of generating this information for lower-rainfall areas... "There is growing interest in expanding oat production in these lower-rainfall areas to diversify rotations and help manage seasonal rainfall variation, declining grain prices, higher input costs, frost risk in susceptible paddocks and increasing weed burdens," he says... Dr Malik says the rates will be tested in combination with nitrogen application in the eastern wheatbelt trials this year...
