New grains products, varieties and practices on the way.. Current investments by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), on behalf of growers and the Australian Government, are expected to produce an array of tools, resources and support mechanisms to enhance growers' productivity and profitability... A collaborative program on post-harvest grain storage that will develop an industry-wide systems approach, integrating a range of tools and treatments, for managing stored-grain insect pests at all critical points in the Australian grains supply chain...

Seeds for robust cropping systems to be sown at Ballarat.. Farming systems built to withstand the impact of weeds, diseases, pests, seasonal constraints and market vagaries will take centre stage in Ballarat next month... Caption: GRDC Southern Regional Panel chair David Shannon says the annual Ballarat Update plays a critical role in delivering information, knowledge and resources to farm advisers who can in turn inform their farming clients and prepare them for the season ahead...

"We need to find the best strain for all conditions and this means taking them out into the field in a range of environments," Mr Meibusch says... " the microspectrometers may be used to measure phosphine levels in silos, grain moisture and protein content, for example, but the first use we are testing is to measure soil properties," Mr Meibusch says... Mr Meibusch and his colleagues are focused on gaining the best outcomes for Australian grain growers and at times that means working with international partners to draw in funding, achieve international market acceptance or gain economies of scale...

Consultant Bob Freebairn makes the case for supporting new wheat varieties in well-managed rotations, with this look at the way one northern New South Wales property is progressing.. For Bill and Andrew Yates, choosing varieties on their level of tolerance and resistance to P. thornei has become a critical consideration... The Yates rely heavily on data from the National Variety Trials when choosing varieties, confident that any claims of yield improvement by new releases can be rigorously assessed...

Nematode resistance ratings updated for wheat.. All major winter crops, wheat, barley and chickpeas, are susceptible to the root-lesion nematode species P. thornei and encourage the proliferation of nematode populations... Crop rotation and varietal choice are the key tools in managing P. thornei populations while maintaining yield and profitability according to Northern Grower Alliance (NGA) chief executive officer Richard Daniel...

The aim of the project is to apply the new genetic model for wheat, Brachypodium distachyon, to speed up gene discovery in wheat root systems... The objectives are to (1) assemble a collection of diverse Brachypodium germplasm for this project and other Australian researchers; (2) screen Brachypodium genotypes for variation in root vigour, architecture, water uptake and tolerance to wheat root pathogens, and (3) identify genomic regions and markers associated with root traits in wheat using Brachypodium... http://www.nature.com/news/2010/100728/full/466552a.html - international; 53,000 circulation; ~400,000 readership - Impact factor 32 Peer reviewed journals Brkljacic et al (19 international authors including Watt) (2011) Brachypodium as a model for the grasses: Today and the future...

Still time to save Central Queensland from nematodes.. "The other good news is that only five per cent of the paddocks sampled in CQ had RLN populations above the wheat-damage threshold of 2000 per kilogram of soil," Mr Robinson says... Prevention measures "Continuing to grow susceptible varieties of crops such as wheat, barley, chickpeas, mungbeans or soybeans can quickly increase the RLN population to damaging levels and help them spread across paddocks and the region," Mr Robinson says "Replacing these with resistant and tolerant varieties - such as the wheat varieties LongReach Gauntlet , Sunmate and Suntop - and rotating with tolerant crops such as sorghum, maize, sunflowers and cotton for two or more consecutive seasons, will reduce P. thornei populations...

Yellow spot is prevalent in northern region wheat crops it remains one of the most misdiagnosed wheat diseases... "Fungicides only treat the part of the plant that they come into contact with," Dr Simpfendorfer said... Dr Simpfendorfer said a lot more inoculum was generated on stubbles of more susceptible wheat varieties, such as EGA Gregory and LongReach Spitfire , so the risk of the disease developing was much greater where a susceptible wheat variety was sown on the stubble of a previously infected susceptible variety, such as EGA Gregory on EGA Gregory ...

Recently the top five diseases in wheat and barley have been estimated to cost growers in the northern region $261 million annually (wheat $183 m and barley $78 m, Murray and Brennan 2009)... The unit has a long history of effectively developing and delivering IDM strategies to support industry in minimising losses to and reducing the risk of the key cereal and pulse diseases in the region... Minimise risk of virus by retaining standing stubble, planting on time and at optimal seeding rate for rapid canopy closure...
