Researchers get the dirt on nematodes.. Western Australian growers who suspect their crops are being damaged by root lesion nematodes (RLN) can confirm which species and population levels are present in problem areas by using in-season testing services this growing season... Research being conducted by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), aims to characterise differences between crop varieties in their resistance and tolerance to each species, which would allow growers to select appropriate cultivars to minimise yield losses...

Previous research indicated that native nematodes can kill common garden snails ( Helix sp.) in laboratory based trials... The project is designed to control pest snails with an environmentally-friendly method (nematode-based biocontrol agent)... In summary, a total of seven major achievements were obtained through this feasibility study regarding the possibility of using native parasitic nematodes for control of pest snails in Australia...

Precision row placement is likely to have its greatest impact on reducing CR and CRR levels in a no-till farming system with the adoption of GPS guided controlled traffic likely to further benefit this approach... Its main impact on crop productivity has been shown to occur through the disruption of the plants ability to use water efficiently to produce grain (Figure 6)... Plant early in areas of low frost risk, such as higher slopes, and reduce the risk of frost damage by planting more than one variety and by varying planting times...

Growers praised for efforts to preserve healthy soils.. On the eve of World Soil Day (December 5), Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Managing Director John Harvey says it is timely to acknowledge the grains industry's efforts in ensuring the long-term fertility of soils, necessary for essential food production... Scientists involved in the Soil Biology Initiative agree that the program is making considerable progress in understanding the composition of the living fraction of soils which support crop production, and how growers can best manage soils to maximise nutrient capture and defend against crop disease...
