Whilst no in-season management decisions were made based on these images, quantification of the damage using the DMSI allows for better decision making to rectify the issues... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 109.. Depending how the black and white image is generated the black area can vary in size; a minimum and maximum area was calculated and presented in Table 2...

The project was established to provide advice to breeders on how to improve the adaptability of crops in the high rainfall zone (HRZ) of southern Australia so that yields could be lifted closer to potential... Information from the project needs to be extended to growers to provide guidance as to the likely impacts of different management strategies on the germplasm currently available... 2. Better understand crop growth and development of existing germplasm in the HRZ Field experiments were conducted to provide information relating to how current commercial germplasm (wheat, barley, canola and pulses) captured resources and the efficiency with which these crops converted these resources to biomass and grain...

The BettaCrop database currently has information for over 10,000 paddocks and includes over 120 current growers across northern, central and southern areas of NSW. Analysis of the database is conducted each year and is able to provide comparisons of various agronomic and management factors that contribute to achieving high water use efficiency (WUE)... The project commenced in July 2008, and will examine the effects of management practices on WUE. Soil water characteristics will be determined and WUE will be calculated and modelled for the growing season... Passioura & Angus also state that tactical management has the potential to increase yields in favourable seasons with little effect on yields in poor seasons...

Coordinating the improved management of soil acidity in Western Australia and the GRDCSouthern Region... The project will coordinate a national effort to effect a step change in the management of soil acidity in the Western and Southern GRDC regions... Existing and new information including data from lime trials, publications and recommendations will be used to develop or improve a collection of simple calculators which will enable growers to make informed decisions to ensure that they are confident about the management decisions they make including an understanding of the likely outcomes if the levels of soil acidity on their farms is not managed appropriately...
