Some canola proteins have good technological functionality compared to proteins currently being used for food manufacturing... Our study shows that globulin extracts had significantly higher emulsifying capacity (EC) than albumin extracts and SoyPI at all pH values tested (Figure 1)... The same trend was observed for SoyPI except for pH 9 at which SoyPI-stabilised emulsion had smaller droplet compared to that of globulin extracts even though the EC was not as good...

PestFacts South Australia and Western Victoria co-ordinators say that cultural practices have a significant impact on insect populations in field crops and a number of basic steps over the summer and pre-sowing period can help increase the chances of a successful start next season... Summer weeds provide a 'green bridge' for pests such as aphids, mites, snails and diamondback moth to survive on over the hot summer months," said Mr Perry, whose work is supported by growers and the Australian Government through the Grains Research and Development Corporation's (GRDC) investment in the National Invertebrate Pest.. Mr Perry recommends that growers identify paddocks at higher risk of pest pressure and carefully monitor them in the autumn prior to sowing susceptible crops...

" Date: 04.07.2016 'Gloves are up' ready to FITE Russian wheat aphid in north.. As the GRDC implements a multi-faceted research, development and extension approach to better inform future control of the pest - detected in Australia for the first time last month - growers are being encouraged to continue to scout fields, report any concerns and where necessary implement a considered management strategy... Any suspected sightings of RWA in New South Wales should be reported to the Exotic Plant Pest Hotline (1800 084 881) while any suspected sightings in Queensland should be reported to Biosecurity Queensland on 13 25 23...

Insect pests that feed on plant structures that directly produce yield, such as growing tips and fruiting structures, are generally the greatest problem in a cotton crop... The cotton plant has an indeterminate growing pattern (fruit are present for most of the season), which allows some pests to develop through several generations... In cotton, all stages of plant growth may be attacked but reproductive tissue is preferred...

In summary, it could be argued that none of the currently available preemergence herbicides have the required stability in efficacy to become viable alternatives to postemergence group A or imidazolinone herbicides... Overall, 2012 seasonal conditions tended to favour early and mid flowering and maturing varieties...

Advice concerning the significance and control of the more common pests, or potential pests, of these crops is presented... Value of the crop (high value crops cannot sustain too much damage as a small loss in yield or quality could mean a large financial loss), the cost of the spray and its application and the likely yield or quality benefit gained from control... Crop monitoring Ongoing monitoring of crops and surrounding vegetation is essential to determine the presence of both pests and predators, and when, if any, intervention is required to keep pests at an acceptable level or, if feasible, boost predator numbers by introducing them into the system...

The best approach to managing helicoverpa is to use a combination of both chemical and non-chemical tools... By considering the ecology of H. armigera and H. punctigera , several key principles emerge that will assist in the successful and sustainable management of these pests... Insect-resistant genetically modified (GM) cotton has been developed to produce a highly specific toxin that kills helicoverpa larvae that feed on the cotton plant...
