Biosecurity strengthens weed control.. Problem weeds have been a major driver behind his biosecurity practices, including spiny burrgrass, St Barnaby's thistle, feathertop Rhodes grass and silver-leaf nightshade... Rodney has successfully eradicated spiny burrgrass and silver-leaf nightshade on his farm, and continues to employ several practices to ensure freedom from such weeds is maintained...

We need to analyse farming practices, livestock and arable, in an effort to minimise our carbon footprint and arrest our declining terms of trade... To date, most work on carbon is more "big picture" but to really make an impact we must adopt systems that minimise emissions and maximise sequestrations AT THE FARM LEVEL... Australian agriculture has been proactive in adopting technology in many areas including water use efficiency, compaction management, conservation tillage and livestock management with a looming carbon tax impacting ALL segments of business the pressure to increase efficiency is huge...

ICF, with the support of GRDC, has prepared 14 case studies of irrigators in the southern Murray-Darling Basin... In doing so, these irrigators can achieve their financial and personal goals, ensure they are part of a vibrant community, and ensure their land is part of a sustainable irrigated agricultural landscape...

The program of research developed around this position focuses on novel approaches to grain crop improvement in water-limited environments... It emphasises the design and testing of crop production systems that optimise combinations of genetic attributes (G) and agronomic management (M) in variable water-limited environments (E) using a systems analysis and modelling approach... The ways genes, environments and management systems interact to affect crop productivity has been captured in mathematical algorithms that turn computers into virtual paddocks, allowing simulated field trials to improve risk-management options and resource-use efficiency < Keep browsing..

Reducing the likelihood of accidental contamination in the supply chain, protecting WA image and traceability were other important reasons grain farmers gave for implementing a QA system... To adopt a QA system, farming enterprises need to believe that some improvement in financial performance is assured... To learn more about grain growers' awareness of quality assurance, and the benefits and barriers arising from the implementation of a QA system, research was undertaken for the grains industry by Curtin University...

The proposed project will undertake research on the identification of emerging weeds in southern and western regions, factors contributing to their increasing abundance as well as developing and promoting adoption of practices for their effective management... The project will start with a coordinated survey of weeds of cropping paddocks in each region... Some of the emerging weeds have already been identified through feedback by different grower groups which include barley grass, brome grass, silver grass, marshmallow, fleabane, matricaria, common sowthistle, windmill grass, stinking lovegrass and Lincoln weed...
