In summary, composts in soil management programmes (for horticulture): x Reduce nutrient leaching and consequent effects on water bodies... In summary, organic agriculture can provide yields similar to conventional agriculture using natural farm inputs in place of chemical fertilisers and sprays... The rots should be able to be minimised through good field practices, chemical control, gentle washing of carrots and keeping them cool and wet at all times...

Canola is often windrowed to ensure all pods are mature at harvest... In summary, windrowing too early can result in lower yields and oil contents and too late will lead to shattering losses... Canola is sold into a deregulated domestic market and the responsibility of finding an acceptable price and arranging a buyer rests with the grower...

Catalogue: Broadacre Field Crops DAFF QLD
The optimum planting time for forage oats is from mid-March to June in southern Queensland, and early April to June in central Queensland... Late planting will hasten maturity and reduce the potential for multiple grazing... Starter fertiliser at sowing is recommended, but should be applied separate to the seed as the fertiliser can damage the seed and reduce its germination (e.g. DAP at 100 kg/ha will provide sufficient nitrogen (N) for establishment and phosphorus for the duration of the crop)...

SARDI's Dr Alan McKay says take-all is the disease likely to catch growers out... Inoculum levels are the highest in more than a decade and growers and advisers managing intensive cereal or cereal/pasture rotations should plan ahead to avoid yield loss later in the season... "If the paddock must be sown to a cereal, then consider barley because any yield losses will be only half that of wheat's potential losses, but inoculum levels will continue to increase."..

The benefits improve crop health and crop competitive ability against weeds and the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides... When used as a post-emergent product, little of the herbicide gets to the roots and the control of established weeds is often very poor... benefits arise when the weed is prevented from setting seed as there are no increases to the seedbank and, as a consequence, fewer weeds in the future...
