Dr Hashem says a rotation of wheat/lupins or lupins/wheat followed by Roundup Ready (RR) canola and use of alternative herbicides with diverse modes of action were the keys to success... Dr Hashem says the trial compared row spacings of 22 and 44 centimetres and found that any moisture conservation benefit from using wider rows at the Cunderdin site was offset by reduced crop establishment (by 20 to 25 per cent on average for all crop types) and weed-control failure... Dr Hashem says that the use of Flexi N reduced canola establishment in both 22 and 44cm row spacing plots compared with urea, but increased canola crop vigour by 15 per cent and grain yield by 12 per cent...

Field measurements and lifecycle analysis (LCA) in this project examined if CO 2 emissions from urea could be reduced by substituting urea with grain legume-fixed N and if soil N 2 O emissions could be reduced by raising soil pH (through liming)... The extent to which incorporating grain legumes in cropping rotations would reduce emissions depends on the amount of urea that was saved by substituting grain legume-fixed N for synthetic N fertiliser... The first aim of this research was to measure N 2 O emissions in the field for two years and incorporate the findings into a lifecycle analysis (LCA) to determine if incorporating a grain legume (lupins) into a cropping rotation would lower on-farm and total GHG emissions from wheat production...

Responses to remedial treatments are not necessarily the same each year, but depend on seasonal conditions... Biomass was measured at anthesis of crops and crop development was observed... Early broadleaf weed densities were measured at the same stage as crop vigour of 6 WA-S with low weed levels present ranging from 0 1 1 total weeds/m 2...
