The outputs of this and previous projects confirm the ability of CQ grain growers to produce more grain from less water using an opportunity cropping strategy during a decade of low rainfall years (2000-2009) and still maintain a profitable industry... This group of activities showed that the technologies assessed in the project were not 'grower friendly', and that they needed a high level of expertise for successful use and adoption... Cropping frequency An assessment of cropping sequences over 10 years on the Moonggoo and Kilmore case study farms examined the potential for increasing the cropping frequency in CQ as a means of improving the profitability of grain production...

Growers urged not to grow canola on canola to prevent disease risk and crop losses.. Growers are urged not to risk the long-term viability of the canola industry by sowing canola on canola," said Dr Marcroft, on behalf of the National Brassica Pathology Working Group... Dr Marcroft, who has been addressing GRDC grains research Updates in the southern region about the blackleg scenario, says growers can use the Risk Assessor to determine if their paddocks are in a high risk situation, and what practices could be changed to reduce yield loss from blackleg.
