Research trials show early harvesting (or cutting) can significantly reduce aflatoxin levels and increase gross returns... A number of factors influence the decision on when to cut a peanut crop, including: maturity of the crop peg strength and general crop health; if the crop is highly diseased the grower is advised to cut early to reduce harvest losses weather outlook; hasten or delay cutting if wet weather is imminent risk attitude of grower soil type differences may cause variations in maturity within a block machinery logistics; if a small acreage can be cut or harvested this will spread harvesting over a longer period... DEEDI trials conducted over the trial period of three seasons consistently showed that in years, or situations, where there is a high-aflatoxin risk, early crop cutting can help to minimise aflatoxin levels and increase gross returns...

The aim of the project was to develop closely linked molecular markers in wheat for traits that were suggested by breeders or collaborative partners at the Molecular Plant Breeding Cooperative Research Centre (MPBCRC)... All three objectives were achieved: two closely linked markers (< 20kb) to the 7A maturity locus were identified and further alleles were suggested to segregate in Australian germplasm; two markers were developed for the 2A rust gene (< 2cM) and marker density at three drought-tolerance related loci was increased by adding 53 markers out of more than 200 screened simple sequence repeats (SSRs)... The genetic map of the cross between Berkut and Krichauff can be seen as a valuable genetic resource indicated by the many projects on QTL identification in this population such as yield under drought stress, salinity in hydroponics and field and grain fructan content...

Slow maturing wheat yields solution to changing climate.. The research project monitored four wheat varieties planted across trial sites at Lake Bolac and Westmere (Vic) in the high rainfall zone, Temora and Junee (NSW) in the medium rainfall zone, and Condoblin (NSW) in the low rainfall zone, with each variety planted between mid-April and late May... Although dry conditions late in winter at Condoblin meant all varieties sown mid-April to mid-May had roughly the same yields, low density plantings benefitted the yield of slow maturing varieties Eaglehawk and Bolac , but reduced yield in fast maturing wheats sown later...
