The paper includes results from an across sites and years analysis for the period 1999-2001 (Table 2), as well as preliminary results from the 2002 trial series (Table 3)... The scope of specific research programs being undertaken to improve the quality of Australia's winter cereal grains will be described... Provided that there are no physical or chemical constraints and soil water is present, crops such as mungbean have the potential to root to around 90cm and wheat, sorghum and cotton to 150-180cm...

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...

Grain at typical harvest temperatures of 25-30 C and moisture content greater than 13-14 per cent provides ideal conditions for mould and insect growth (see Figure 1)... There are a number of ways to deal with high-moisture grain - the key is to act quickly and effectively... Cooling before batching:Batch drying (shown ) is one method of dealing with high-moisture grain and aeration cooling in storage can be used to hold grain safely before it can be put through the dryer...

New app monitors soil water.. Soil water estimates will allow growers to better estimate their yield potential at sowing, and make decisions ... Local weather data including rainfall, temperature, solar radiation and evaporation are used to simulate crop growth, runoff, drainage and stored moisture levels in each soil layer" Dr Freebairn said...

As Nick Gillett gets ready for the 2015 winter cereal season the shadows of previous seasons cross his mind, particularly those of the past decade - which included some of the driest seasons on record... The seeding regime is changing: the aim now being to get the crop in and maturing to beat moisture stress... For example, in an average season, wheat germinating and emerging by mid-May can yield two to three tonnes a hectare, compared with well below 1t/ha for crops emerging in late June or early July...

Western Australian growers who have experienced wet conditions this harvest have a number of options to deal with high-moisture grain, but the key is to act promptly... Detailed advice to help growers manage grain which is over the standard safe storage moisture content of 12.5 per cent is outlined in a new Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Grain Storage fact sheet - Dealing with high-moisture grain... Department of Agriculture and Food WA (DAFWA) grain storage specialist Chris Newman said using aeration cooling to store grain of moderate moisture content - of up to 15 per cent - was one of the ways to reduce the risk of grain damage and mould growth...

With wet weather hampering what is left of the Western Australian harvest, growers are advised to act promptly to deal with high-moisture grain... Detailed advice to help growers manage grain which is over the standard safe storage moisture content of 12.5 per cent is outlined in the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Grain Storage Fact Sheet - Dealing with high-moisture grain... Continuous flow drying - grain is transferred through a dryer, which uses a high volume of heated air to pass through the continual flow of grain;..
