ENSO remains best northern climate indicator.. The El Ni o/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon remains recognised as the core driver of climate variability in eastern Australia, according to University of Southern Queensland climate researcher, Professor Roger Stone... "Although there are many climate patterns and systems that exist at widely varying time scales, the ENSO phenomenon remains recognised as the core driver of climate variability in eastern Australia," Prof Stone said...

Much of the success has come as a result of new varieties with increased plant height reducing harvest losses and improved disease resistance... The main chickpea varieties grown in the northern grains region of eastern Australia are long-day phenological types (Berger et al. 2004) and as such are suited to late autumn or early winter sowing...

Dr Moore says growers should be aware of the disease resistance traits of each variety they are growing and have seed tested for germination, vigour and pathogens... "The first thing growers of any crop should do is make sure they've got good quality planting seed because getting crops off to a good start is dependent on the quality of the seed," Dr Moore said... Dr Moore says the resurgence indicates growers are confident about the place the crop has in the farming system and they are equally confident about growing chickpeas...

Faba bean foray into the north takes hold.. With his wife Janette and son Lance, Murray was one of the first growers to sow faba beans on the Darling Downs - a region that supports about a third of all northern grain growers... In delivering faba beans to Todd Jorgensen's AssociatedGRAIN in Dalby, Murray says "cashflow" from the crop averaged $454 a tonne in 2014...

In delivering faba beans to Todd Jorgensen's AssociatedGRAIN in Dalby, Murray says "cashflow" from the crop averaged $454 a tonne in 2014... Murray says that so far, the operational efficiency gains that stem from harvesting earlier have outweighed the risk of wet conditions downgrading the quality of the beans, which are susceptible to damage in windrows...

RLN cause substantial yield losses, particularly in wheat, but they reproduce on numerous summer and winter crops... The resistance experiments also demonstrated the large range of susceptibility within crops, even for barley, providing an additional benefit from this work... We conducted a targeted survey of nine farms in the northern grain region to gain knowledge about the presence of the stunt nematode and zoosporic fungi such as Olpidium (zoosporic fungi are characterised by the production of spores called zoospores which have flagella and are motile in water)...

There is a need to improve N management in Australia's grain production systems, both for economic and environmental reasons... This project aims to develop a compendium (knowledge document) plus interactive excel-based decision support (DS) software ('NBudget') for improving knowledge and management of soil, fertiliser and legume N. The N management package is targeted at farmers and advisers... Making decisions about how much fertiliser N to apply to a particular paddock is set to be more challenging than usual after the wet 2010 season and early part of the 2010-11 summer fallow...
