Although a high-risk crop, oaten hay has the potential to outperform all other cereals with respect to gross margins... The widespread use of genetic analysis in agriculture is limited by economic factors... In the short term, fungicides used at seeding (seed dressings or applied in-furrow with fertiliser) and foliar fungicide sprays will mitigate risk and minimise losses...

To reduce the cost of combining traits, molecular markers associated with the genes controlling trait expression have been identified... Breeding lines evaluated under DAQ00175 demonstrated that the new germplasm can alleviate more barley production issues than the previous germplasm or introductions from other parts of Australia... Rather than repeat the outline of breeding activities applied under DAQ00110, information about genes and traits in the new germplasm resource is presented...

While pleased with a yield of seven tonnes per hectare from his Gairdner barley, Tasmanian grower Rob Terry will change to Westminster in 2014 for its higher yield potential... Westminster is set to replace Gairdner as the dominant barley variety grown in Tasmania with the state's two major breweries, Cascade Brewery and Boag's Brewery, endorsing it for malting last year... Gairdner was released in 1998 and has long been the only malting variety these breweries would accept, although Barley Australia has given malting status to other varieties suited to Tasmania...

In the three year project term, the data generated by PBA assisted in the accreditation of Bass , Navigator and Fairview malting barley lines and in the classification of Hindmarsh as a food grade barley... Overall, the lautering performance of Australian lines could be further improved... Fairview , Bass and Navigator malting barley were accredited by Barley Australia...

Figure 1: Area sown to barley in SA (hectares - solid line) and state barley production (tonnes - dotted line)... Other varieties currently under earlier stages of evaluation for malting accreditation by the MBIBTC and Barley Australia include Grange, Henley, Skipper, SY Rattler, Wimmera and Westminster... Only data for varieties evaluated in all trials is included...

The project will undertake an ambitious field program across South Australia and Victoria to evaluate the different resistance genes available to wheat breeding programs to determine the level of resistance required to manage CCN, Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei populations in current farming systems, and develop recommendations to breeding companies on the need for resistant and tolerant varieties across the southern region... To improve recommendation to growers, the project will also assess tolerance of current wheat and barley varieties to CCN, P. neglectus and P. thornei and update guidelines on use of nematode resistant and tolerant varieties to minimise yield losses, including revising the risk categories based on initial nematode levels... A new research officer Sjaan Davey, has been appointed to this project and in collaboration with Dr Grant Hollaway,DPI Vic (via GRDC project DAV00104), and Bev Gogel and Prof Brian Cullis (GRDC project, Statistics for the Australian Grains Industry), is co-ordinating field trials in SA and Victoria to check the calibration of the pot experiments used to classify the resistance levels to CCN, Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei in new varieties, and is developing a field program to assess how well new varieties tolerate the nematodes in the current farming systems...

A new GRDC-supported research project will investigate novel agronomy and soil water management practices with the aim of increasing profitability and reducing risk in WA's low rainfall zone... Achieving a step change in profitability and reducing risk in low rainfall grain growing areas are the aims of a five-year research project set to commence in Western Australia... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), in partnership with CSIRO, is funding the $6 million project which will investigate novel agronomy and soil water management practices...
