Overall, 60-70 per cent of flour is used in traditional flat breads, 20-25 per cent of flour is used in western style breads and 5-10 per cent is used in cakes and biscuits... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil...

KEYMESSAGES Incorrect use of phosphine since the 1950s, has led to escalating resistance in stored grain insects which threatens the continued use of phosphine at the farm level... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil... When running a trial it is important to: 1...

The result confirms the conclusions of another experiment comparing crops growing after pastures conducted in a wetter sequence of seasons... The expectation is based on results showing that pastures containing the perennial grasses phalaris and cocksfoot had higher yields than those based on lucerne... If pastures containing perennial pastures are more widely adopted, the expected economic benefit will be a yield advantage of about 10% over lucerne-dominant pastures...

When Doug and Roma Parker decided to plant wheat fence-to-fence last year to recover from two successive droughts, it was still an easy decision to keep their trial paddock of perennial pasture - despite their 2200-hectare Mingenew property 'Pri-inga' having been destocked... Doug says the 15ha of perennial pasture (grass), resulting from their involvement with the GRDC-supported Grain & Graze program, was preserved to rebuild their livestock operations and restore some enterprise diversity... Doug says his grazing records show perennial pasture allows a higher stocking rate than annual pasture species, and after establishing the pasture in the first year the growth thereafter is "all profit"...

Soil water under pasture-cropping with subtropical perennials Phil Ward, David Ferris, Roger Lawes, Perry Dolling, Shayne Micin, Nicola Palmer, and Phil Barrett-Lennard.. Winter tolerance of sub-tropical grasses commonly used agricultural herbicides John Borger and David Ferris to.. Water Dynamics & Grain Yield Results Crop growing season - little difference in soil water under annual crop, perennial pasture and pasture-cropped plots Grain fill - pastures started competing with crop impacts on grain yield were generally small but Summer and Autumn - soil water contents were much lower under perennial pasture and pasture-cropped plots..

LEY PASTURES - THEIR FIT IN CROPPING SYSTEMS.. The pastures need to be removed earlier (e.g. June) to allow sufficient fallow length to reduce any yield penalty in subsequent crops (Fig. 4)... Growth and livestock prices fluctuate from year to year we also explore how sensitive returns are to these changes (Table 10)...
