To maximise grain yield, quality and profitability of new pulse varieties and minimise production risks, field based research is required to determine best management practice requirements (e.g. optimum sowing time, fungicide regimes etc.)... The project has demonstrated that targeted agronomic research data aimed at delivering best practice management strategies for new pulse varieties can increase profitability and minimise production risk, when delivered through VMPs and other extension activities such as field days... The major aim of this project was to deliver targeted agronomic research data for pulses, through field trials, that could be synthesised into variety specific management packages (VMP) for the south-eastern Australian cropping region...

In many ways barley is a forgotten crop in southern New South Wales," Dr Fettell said. ".. The virtual deregulation of the barley market in eastern and southern Australia has also brought new buyers into the market... Dr Fettell said the new varieties being considered for southern NSW - Buloke, Baudin, Flagship and Vlamingh - had all out-yielded Schooner, but none met the malting grade with the same consistency.

Results from the 2014 National Variety Trials (NVT) in the southern cropping region have been released to assist growers with crop choices for this year... A total of 360 NVT trials were sown in the southern region in 2014, of which 350 have made it through to harvest; some were lost to drought or pest damage... The trials of 10 broadacre crops - wheat, barley, oats, triticale, canola, chickpeas, faba beans, lentils, field peas and lupins - have been conducted on about 170 properties in South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and southern New South Wales...

The GRDC-supported National Mungbean Improvement Program is making gains with new and better varieties.. In comparison to White Gold - the highest-yielding commercial variety - 45/52-21 has yielded, overall, two per cent higher, ranging from equal yield to four per cent better, depending on the region... Subjective and objective quality tests over three years have shown 3511-32 to have superior seed quality compared to other lines in the dull-seed-coat category...

A project testing new wheat varieties from a number of sources under a range of agronomic treatments in the Western Region was carried out over a period of four years... Results from the project have reinforced earlier findings that the greatest yield improvements are likely to result from the combination of new varieties with appropriate management practices rather than from either source alone... The project team made a substantial contribution to this process by providing agronomic information at the time of release of the variety, assistance with Farmnotes, balanced promotion at field days and Updates, and an understanding of the impact of the variety's short coleoptile on its response to seed rate...

New crop of pulses brings better options to grain growers.. Increasing soil nitrogen levels won't be the only advantage of the latest pulses, with the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) supporting Pulse Breeding Australia's development of new varieties aimed at giving growers a viable third rotation on top of cereals and oilseeds... Dr Brand said that while growers and advisers needed to be mindful of growth stages to ensure desiccants were not applied when seeds were too young, optimum application promised to give growers an edge over problem weeds...

The malt must meet the brewer's set of specifications in terms of its quality performance in the brewhouse; as with the maltster, the brewer is chasing yield and when the brewer buys 100 tonnes of malt he wants to make as many hectolitres of beer as possible... Many brewers operate in highly sophisticated, computerised production factories and require malt of consistent supply, reliable performance and quality, and malt that the brewer is comfortable using. Many breweries make beer in batch sizes of hundreds of hectolitres using significant amounts of raw ingredient, and it is vital to the business (as in any business) that the product is made successfully... Depending on the brew being made, the brewer will issue a list of specifications to the maltster detailing quality parameter requirements like fermentability, total nitrogen (aka protein in barley), diastatic power, Kolbach, wort viscosity, wort colour etc...

Barley varieties are now accredited on an Australia-wide basis; a malting barley variety is deemed suitable to produce malt and beer from across Australia regardless of whether it is purchased by any one company in any one region for malting and brewing purposes... When any nationally accredited variety of malting barley is purchased its end use is at the discretion of the individual marketer and/or maltster which accumulated the barley... The barley is either intended for the sugar adjunct market or starch adjunct market and is then malted and brewed ...
