From the farm to the lab to take on frost.. "I saw the job as an opportunity to better understand frost and work on research investigating options for managing it," Brenton says... While the results of the first year of research are being analysed, Brenton says working on a frost research project has opened his eyes to a wider range of career opportunities within the grains industry and allowed him to build more extensive industry networks...

Stay-green wheat may weaken drought's grip.. Stay-green was discovered in wheat more than 25 years ago, but the traits are only now becoming accessible to breeders through the development of molecular markers, the details of which will be published this year... Stay-green in plants can be determined by a range of underlying mechanisms, several of which facilitate increased water availability after flowering, such as small canopy size at flowering, increased moisture uptake after flowering, increased nitrogen uptake during grain-fill and increased nitrogen in leaves...
