The project has supported the development of farming systems that incorporate forage (lab lab) and ley (butterfly pea) legumes into grain farming systems... Growing canola is like having a fallow period as far as VAM populations in the soil are concerned... Research in the area of AWM is looking at tactics that can be implemented during the summer...

Cameron Tonkin & Giles Butler (NSW Agriculture) 9:45 AM How the crop produces grain -getting the basics right.. Ground cover is estimated by looking at a crop in several places around a paddock at an angle of 45 through the hole created by putting the tip of your index finger and thumb together and estimating the percentage of the hole covered by crop, not soil... Plant height measured on 6/2/01 after each crop was: after wheat: 22 cm after canola: 18 cm after mustard: 16 cm..

Grain drying and aeration to manage wet grain... Glyphosate is widely used for fallow weed control, particularly on farms using reduced tillage practices... Computer simulations, using a glyphosate resistance model developed by the WAHRI group at UWA, predicted that the probability for ryegrass to develop resistance increased from 0% for conventional wheat system using glyphosate once in fallow to 82% for zero tillage systems with RR crops and greater use of glyphosate...

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...
