The GRDC is striving to minimise future productivity loss by investing in large-scale research projects aimed at equipping growers with effective management strategies... The approach enables any significant difference in variety yield to be attributed to nematode impact... "There are three main areas we are evaluating at 'Curraweena': the impact from increased P. thornei populations on variety yield, the impact from varieties and crops on P. thornei build-up and the impact from management practices on P. thornei yield losses and build-up," Mr Daniel says...

In summary, 20 trials have now recently been undertaken across a number of seasons and locations in NSW. None of them have demonstrated S responses in yield or oil %. This does not exclude deficiency and yield penalties from occurring but does highlight that the frequency and the likelihood is not high... Delaying any action that has the potential to cease grain fill will see more seeds achieve their maximum size and improve yield... In summary there was no 'concerning' level of seed loss observed at any trial or timing, correlating well with the yield data...
