Legumes make cane more able.. We look at game-changing research that has turned around the fortunes of cane growers through grains diversification.. "If we were going to integrate legumes into the system we had to marry-up with reduced tillage and controlled traffic, so we did a fair amount of work on-farm to determine 'when, where and why'," Mike says...

Importantly new production environments such as Mackay and the Burdekin will present new challenges for defining BMP given the specific conditions that apply in each region particularly in relation to optimum planting and harvesting windows... APSIM Peanut uses all of the historical climate data including rainfall temperature radiation and applied irrigation to predict yield outcomes... Additional work needs to be conducted in the Burdekin and Mackay regions to cater for specific production scenarios and climatic zones which can vary considerably within each region...

The irrigation scheduling program 'AQUAMAN' has helped growers and advisers to improve water use efficiency... The tight water budgeting and rising energy costs mean that there is a need for growers to improve their skills in using limited water supplies more efficiently than has previously been the case... There is a need to develop agronomic practices for these varieties to match their yield to full season varieties, and to ensure the production of high quality peanuts for Australian and overseas markets...

Grab a handful of peanuts, a Mars bar, or spread your toast with a thick layer of peanut butter - and you are about to taste an industry on the move... Because peanuts are a legume and return biologically fixed nitrogen back to the soil, they can improve soil health and boost cane yields," says Mr Mills... Mr Mills says there is no cutting corners with peanuts, but the opportunities are there for growers who want to invest time in more intensive crops...

In 2008, earthy, musty off-flavours were detected in peanuts in north Queensland, which led to over $1 million of product downgrades... The actinomycetes produce volatile compounds that contaminate the stored nuts, and cause the musty, earthy off-flavours... Contamination of peanuts can occur in the field during the growing season and also during post-harvest storage and handling...

The main aims of the project include:- 1) Establishing an accurate, rapid and low cost analytical and sampling procedure for 2-MIB and Geosmin in peanut products, including farmer stock, raw and roasted kernels and peanut paste... The project will lead to better understanding of the measurement, biology and management of off flavour contamination (2-MIB and Geosmin), which are off flavor volatiles in peanuts... Improved understanding of the ecology and biology of causal organisms producing 2-MIB and geosmin, with particular reference to species of Actinomycete, which are known to produce these compounds in other commodities (e.g. hay, cereal grains, sugar cane, wool)...
