Evaluation of the environmental and economic impact of Roundup Ready canola in the Western Australian crop production system James Fisher and D sir e Futures, York, Western Australia, james@desireefutures.net.au Peter Tozer, PRT Consulting, Armidale NSW, prt_consulting@live.com.au.. Overall, the analysis suggests that Roundup Ready canola could be as profitable or more profitable than triazine tolerant canola with a reduced environmental impact and slightly reduced fuel use... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 176..

Figure 1 Facilitating better trial design - By Gio Braidotti Eight facilitators have been appointed to head the GRDC's new research, development and extension (RD&E) platform - the Regional Cropping Solutions (RCS) networks... Nine networks are being established across the southern and western growing regions... The newly appointed facilitators are to head these networks, a role that requires familiarity with long-standing and emerging local issues and the ability to identify the research question that best helps address these challenges...

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...

Average yield loss from YS-SNB disease complex in wheat over thirty years of DAFWA's field trials in WA was 11.5% equating to 302 kg/ha or $75 /ha... The higher rainfall zone suffers greater yield losses from YS-SNB disease complex than medium and low rainfall zones... Average yield loss from YS-SNB disease complex on wheat in Western Australia was calculated as 302 kg/ha (CI = 28 kg/ha), or about 11.5% (CI = 1.1) (Figure 2)...
