UA00078 was developed to provide routine marker-assisted selection for barley breeding by the Victorian Department of Primary Industries (VicDPI) and the University of Adelaide (UA)... The primary focus is the application of marker-based selection to early generation material to increase the frequency of desirable traits in the germplasm that enters field evaluation... The strategy has allowed a significant increase in throughput, typically equating to an extra 4,700 individual plants analysed each year...

Dr Zhong-Hua Chen examining wheat under drought stressint a glasshouse at the University of Western Sydney - part of a collaborative research project with the Australian Centre of Plant Functional Genomics in Adelaide... Dr Chen says the prize money will further his research developing salt-tolerant malting barley in the laboratory, in the glasshouse and then in the field... While his ultimate career goal is to breed varieties that can survive in high-saline, marginal environments, this research is designed to benefit growers in both current and future growing conditions if a drier climate leads to increased concentration of sodium chloride in the soil...

Head loss in barley can cause major economic losses in the coast regions of Esperance in WA or the lower Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas of SA. Head loss is climatically dependent and controlled by strong genetics and environmental interaction... On-site screening for head loss is critical for the results relevant to barley industry... The outputs of the project will provide genetic materials and molecular tools for the barley breeders to develop new malting barley varieties with minimum risk of head loss for barley growers...

The industry's importance is also reflected in the increasing number of new varieties on offer and this, says Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA) senior research officer Blakely Paynter, is causing some uncertainty for growers in deciding which variety to grow... The guide includes agronomic information about each variety, with a particular focus on new and emerging options... "The aim is to provide information that will help growers with decision-making about whether to grow a malting barley variety to chase a potentially higher price, or a food/feed barley variety that consistently produces high yields and suffers less from disease or weeds," Mr Paynter says...

The malt must meet the brewer's set of specifications in terms of its quality performance in the brewhouse; as with the maltster, the brewer is chasing yield and when the brewer buys 100 tonnes of malt he wants to make as many hectolitres of beer as possible... Many brewers operate in highly sophisticated, computerised production factories and require malt of consistent supply, reliable performance and quality, and malt that the brewer is comfortable using. Many breweries make beer in batch sizes of hundreds of hectolitres using significant amounts of raw ingredient, and it is vital to the business (as in any business) that the product is made successfully... Depending on the brew being made, the brewer will issue a list of specifications to the maltster detailing quality parameter requirements like fermentability, total nitrogen (aka protein in barley), diastatic power, Kolbach, wort viscosity, wort colour etc...

Data collected included the supplier's name and address, variety name and history of the sample... A high output method for measuring genetic homogeneity was developed by Diversity Arrays Technology Pty Ltd (DArT) using Plant Breeders' Rights (PBR) samples of current malting barley varieties... The system will allow future accurate testing of a large number of samples from all points in the supply chain...

New varieties of herbicide-tolerant juncea canola (Oasis CL and Sahara CL) have performed well in agronomic testing in Western Australia in terms of grain yield for a range of seed rates, nitrogen rates and row spacings... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 69.. Overall, the most consistently susceptible variety appears to be Hindmarsh, followed by Commander and Stirling...
