Storing pulses successfully requires a balance between ideal harvest and storage conditions... Harvesting at 14 per cent moisture content captures grain quality and reduces mechanical damage to the seed but requires careful management to avoid deterioration during storage... Pulses stored above 12 per_cent moisture content require aeration cooling to maintain quality...

Herbicide and pesticide applications to grain and other crops in Australia are likely to be the subject of increasing restrictions from mid 2010 onwards as the Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) imposes no spray buffer zones and other spray drift mitigation measures to prevent off-target pesticide movements onto sensitive areas... For ground-based applications, these models offer few choices of application..... Data to support appropriate spray regulations..

The integrated management of invertebrate pests in Tasmanian grain crops will be the focus of a workshop for advisers and growers at Campbell Town on September 9... The Grains Research and Development Corporation ( GRDC) workshop is locally supported by Dow AgroSciences and Syngenta and addresses the needs of advisers and growers who seek an improved understanding of insects and their management to assist with implementation of more sustainable insect management practices... Workshop topics include implementing an integrated approach to insect management and decision making; monitoring, thresholds and management strategies for regionally important crops and insects; and integrated pest management tools including conserving beneficial insects and options for more selective insecticides...

The research has been conducted across the mid north of South Australia to determine if new and existing varieties of barley vary in tolerance to commonly used herbicides.. The sensitivity of the variety is summarised, using the following symbols based on the yield responses across all trials: - not tested or insufficient data (z) no significant yield reductions at recommended rates or higher than recommended rates in (z) trials N (w/z) narrow margin, significant yield reductions at higher than recommended rate, but not at recommended rate significant event occurring w years out of z years tested... (2/5) = tested for 5 years, 2 returning a significant yield loss x% (w/z) yield reduction (warning) significant yield reduction at recommended rate in 1 trial only in z years of testing x-y% (w/z) yield reductions (warning) significant yield reductions at recommended rate in w years out of z years tested...

Preliminary evaluation entries from previous years that have experienced narrow margin % yield reductions at higher than recommended rate are 'Advanced' to these trials for closer evaluation... The sensitivity of the variety compared to unsprayed controls of the same variety is summarised, using the following symbols based on the yield responses across all trials: not tested or only tested at higher than recommended rate (Please check Preliminary Evaluation tables) no significant yield reductions at higher than recommended rates in (Z) trials.. It must be emphasised that crop tolerance and yield responses to herbicides are strongly influenced by seasonal conditions...
