The aim of the project is to increase farm profitability through the sustainable adoption of broadleaf crops in all of the major cropping regions and systems of Australian agriculture... These are: 1) A total of 9 Best Management Practice Training Manuals will be produced and/or revised over the life of the project, 2) Development of and maintenance of a purpose built E-library consisting of easily accessible resources for growers, advisors and researchers, on the sustainable and profitable production of broadleaf crops... Increasing the confidence of growers and advisors in their ability to profitably integrate broadleaf crops into farming programs...

A project is underway in southern NSW to help growers put broadleaf species into crop rotations to improve grain production and profitability... NSW DPI research scientist Dr Guangdi Li, based at Wagga Wagga Agricultural Institute, says each of the grower groups is responsible for coordinating large-scale studies to compare crop performance with and without broadleaf species, while researchers concentrate on the benefits of break crops on nitrogen nutrition, disease break and weeds aspects... Dr Li says the project aims to identify whether profitable broadleaf cropping rotations are available as alternatives to continuous cereal cropping, and to provide guidelines for grain growers and their advisers on when and where to include what break crops to achieve the best outcome...

Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, yields were generally greater for those plots with effective control of weeds and lower weed biomass at anthesis (Tables 1 and 2)... In summary, metribuzin shows some promise for use pre-emergent in lupins but is not currently registered at this timing...

Growers advised to take control of wild radish before it's too late.. A Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) "fast track" project, instigated by the GRDC's southern Regional Cropping Solutions Networks (RCSNs) and conducted by BCG (formerly Birchip Cropping Group), has found that populations of wild radish are changing in their level of resistance... The GRDC, through the RCSNs, last year commissioned BCG to conduct regional paddock surveys to highlight first hand to growers and advisers that resistance is developing...

A Grains Research and Development Corporation "fast track project", instigated by the GRDC's southern Regional Cropping Solutions Networks (RCSN), aims to map the extent of herbicide resistance in wild radish and other broadleaf weeds and increase awareness about the increasing problem... Birchip Cropping Group (BCG) is undertaking the survey, trial and extension work in response to concerns raised about the spread of resistance in wild radish in the southern cropping region, brought to GRDC's attention through the RCSN in the low and medium rainfall zones... "As a consequence, growers have placed less emphasis on rotating their broadleaf herbicide groups, thereby increasing the potential for resistance to develop in weeds such as wild radish, Indian hedge mustard and turnip."..

" Facilitating increased on-farm adoption of broadleaf species in crop sequences to improve grain production and profitability.. The area sown to pulse legume crops or canola has dramatically declined in the past 8-10 years, and despite 65-70% of southern grain region still growing pastures in rotation with crops, many of these pastures tend to have low legume contents and provide little nitrogen benefit to following crops... There are many good reasons why growers have reduced the frequency of use of broadleaf species in recent years related to late starts to the growing season, drought and risk aversion...

The world's third case of glyphosate-resistant liverseed grass has been confirmed in northern New South Wales, seven years after the first two cases were confirmed from east of Moree, NSW... Tony Cook, weeds specialist with the NSW Department of Primary Industries, says that while it is only the third confirmed case of glyphosate-resistant liverseed grass in seven years, it comes from a new area and has a much higher level of resistance than previous populations... Mr Cook says imazapic can be used in summer fallow as a residual herbicide to control multiple weed germinations and then be followed by a winter crop of chickpeas or imidazolinone-tolerant barley...
