'Bio-security, Food Safety and Plant Pathology: The Role of Plant Pathology in a Globalized Economy' was the theme of the 10th International Congress of Plant Pathology (ICPP) hosted by the Chinese Society of Plant Pathology... ' the new technique works by trapping the spores of the pathogen and automatically germinating these in growth medium within the trap.'.. Populations collected from distant regions in Brazil demonstrated that this pathogen has potential for long-distance dispersal, highlighting the need for Australia to maintain strict biosecurity controls when exchanging material between continents...

Cropping systems in the Riverine Plains area are known to be innovative and productive... Early implementation of minimum tillage, improved canopy management (CM) and precision agriculture (PA) in cropping systems have been characteristic of the region's speedy adoption of new technology... All of these areas need further innovations to both validate new technology and integrate it into current farming practices, benefiting early adopters looking for further improvements and equally the next level of adopters to continue to improve productivity.....

Other impacts and conflicts of interest may have a long term effect on the success of implementing genomics and I will address these issues the dairy industry and policy makers will need to consider if it is to be successful... The Australian dairy industry has seen vast genetic improvements over the last 70 years with the introduction of Artificial Insemination (AI), herd testing, semen processing, sire proofing, introduction of breeding values for traits and now the evolution of genomic technology... It is imperative that any data collected from herd recording figures, workability data or confirmation evaluation, needs to follow a clear and definite path to the final users in order for service providers to evaluate in an appropriate and prompt manner delivering accurate and valuable information to the farming industry to allow farmers to make more informed decisions to drive their business into the future...

" GRDC Grains Research Updates 5-6 March 2013, Northern Region, Goondiwindi QLD. Neal Dalgleish 24 September 2013 Neal Dalgleish, CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems, talks about new technology for measuring and advising on soil water... Soil water can be effectively monitored to assist managers in crop decision support... Given the vagaries of the system, there are a number of technologies which will provide a level of information useful in decision support without excessively high levels of investment...

Machinery efficiency showcased in CQ.. Tour organiser Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) principal technical officer Maurice Conway said the tour primarily attracted young growers keen to employ new technologies to generate time and labour savings and maximise crop production opportunities... The disc system is now incorporating on-the-go unit downforce monitoring and adjustment, section control to shut off rows to reduce overlap, variable rate planting and fertilizer application with maps overlaid from historical yield data, soil type and observation," he said...

Applications from more than 100 growers, researchers and agribusiness professionals gave the GRDC a hard task in forming its new advisory panels... The new panels comprise a mix of industry stakeholders, including growers, the broader grains agribusiness sector and researchers... She says her strengths are "communication, education and grain marketing" and she hopes to help shape the future of a very exciting industry: "I"d like to see an improvement in the uptake of new technology and see that R&D is spent in a way that allows graingrowers to extract value from further along the chain...

The results of experiments conducted in our PA research program suggest that variations in the soil often explain much of the variation in crop performance... Using Figure 4a as an example, spatial interpolation is used to estimate the yield that would have been achieved from treatment 2 in the strips that actually contained treatment 1, and vice_versa... Interpolation: A term describing a number of mathematical procedures which are used to create continuous map surfaces from values measured at points...
