Crops should be inspected for ergot 10-14 days after flowering during cool, wet weather Concentrate on crop edges Estimate infection levels of approximately 100 heads (a level of <1% infected spikelet should be safe) Spray out plants if late tillers are infected Increase fan speed of headers to maximise sclerote removal during harvesting Harvest heavily contaminated areas of the crop separately 18.. Preliminary calculations suggest that for mirids, sweep net counts can be converted to beat cloth equivalents per square metre by dividing them by 2.2, provided the following protocols are used: Take 20 sweeps in 20 metres, with each sweep passing through one (1) metre of crop... It is essential that we start thinking about heliothis management in a farming systems context, looking closely at managing populations in all crops during the year...

Grain drying and aeration to manage wet grain... An export oaten hay industry has developed Herbicides are still widely used, but in more combinations or uses not envisaged before (eg crop topping pulses).. Factors Affecting Performance of Fallow Herbicides In successfully using spray adjuvants to optimise performance of fallow herbicides, we need to understand the factors affecting herbicide activity...

Researchers are confident that agriculture can follow mining in the use of autonomous robot vehicles for routine operations.. Professor Sukkarieh outlined how both ground and aerial robots are meeting challenges such as weed management and opening up opportunities such as 'crop intelligence'... "Then we can start to develop autonomous operations where the information being collected in real time by the sensors and robots is used to coordinate those systems in a manner that is not only more efficient, but is also able to meet changing operational requirements...
