In low rainfall regions of south-eastern Australia, farmers have increasingly adopted continuous cereal cropping strategies as non-cereal crops are perceived as riskier than cereals due to greater yield and price fluctuations broad-leaf crops make up only a very small proportion of the total area of sown crops... A design has been developed in consultation with a biometrician which will allow the rigorous comparison of up to 40 individual break sequences (unique combinations of break type and management options over 2 consecutive years) analysed spatially with a continuous cereal as a monitoring check... A guide for improved decision making for the implementation and management of break phases in low rainfall south-eastern Australia will be developed and promoted to the regional communities as part of this project and prior to its completion in June 2015...

With half of his 2023-hectare cropping program sown to canola, it is imperative that Lower Eyre Peninsula farmer David Giddings applies best-management practices to avoid the fungal disease blackleg... "In the region the density of canola makes it impossible to sow 500 metres from last year's canola stubble, as recommended, so I have to apply all other management options vigilantly," David says... "Previously we sowed canola at 5kg/ha but reducing the seeding rate and sowing earlier has seen an improvement in disease, yield and water use efficiency across our sandy loam soils, many of which have a sodic subsoil."..
