14 BWD00024: Maintaining profitable farming systems with retained stubble in Victoria and Tasmania .................................... The over-arching aim of the project is to improve yield and water-use-efficiency of irrigated wheat production across the Northern Region by developing improved agronomic practices to reduce the incidence of lodging and increase the yield potential of irrigated wheat... Overall, the project will deliver a comprehensive research, communication and extension program that will ensure more effective management of water repellent agricultural soils in WA whilst building capacity for future soils research and development in Western Australia...

GRDC takes a 'ground up' approach to RD&E.. To gauge the priority of the issue and its significance to the northern grain-growing region, the area affected needs to be identified and the cost and future cost to production and profitability determined... The issue may have a short-term solution such as developmental work that builds on previous research to adapt it to the local farming system - for example, investigating adaption of current varieties in the local area...

Different responses of collected awnless barnyard grass samples to glyphosate applied 12.8L/ha, showing very strong levels of resistance in some biotypes... More than half the samples collected from 'paddocks of concern' had resistance to three different herbicide products... Samples collected from paddocks in predominantly non-cropping areas were susceptible to glyphosate, whereas seed sourced from grain-growing regions had a higher incidence of resistance...
