" Beneficial Microbes Program - progressing new microbial products for Australian grain production to commercialisation... Australian farmers are keen to reduce on-farm chemical inputs and replace them with biological alternatives... Research has shown that the soil biota can be manipulated for the benefit of crops through management practices, such as tillage, stubble retention/burning, crop/pasture sequencing and liming...

Study sharpens management practices.. Paul began to realise that Australia is as much as 10 years more advanced than North America and Europe with no-till practices and because the Australian market is such a small portion of world machinery sales there are not many manufacturers building machinery to Australian growers' needs... This year, Paul is growing canola for the first time and plans to use his new knowledge of finance gained through the scholarship to assist with farm expansion...

You typically find that the depth to the salt bulge decreases to the west... We have concluded that chickpeas were not as effective as wheat in adjusting yield components under prolonged water stress... The grain yield in the SF early burn and cultivated treatment (2.5 t/ha) was comparable to the other SF treatments in the dry 2002 season despite having the lowest incidence of crown rot infection...

Early prediction of soilborne disease could cut losses.. DAFWA project leader Martin Harries said soilborne diseases were a major cost to the cropping industry, estimated to cause losses in WA of about $100 million per year in cereals alone... "There is scope to reduce these losses through management actions - such as choice of crop type or application of fungicide seed dressings - if these pathogens can be more accurately detected and quantified prior to sowing," he said...
