Catalogue: GRDC Updates (West)
The initial adoption of Flexi-N was driven by the convenience of storage and handling, improved speed and uniformity of application, and reduced labour requirements when applied with pesticides... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 37.. The trials suggest that applying fungicides in large droplets at water rates between 60-80 L/ha will be beneficial in a range of seasons in the Mingenew area...

Potassium can lessen barley disease impact.. Research has shown that applying potassium early in the growing season to barley crops deficient in this nutrient can help reduce the impact of some foliar leaf diseases and boost yields... Trials showed that applying potassium to crops deficient in this nutrient - eight weeks after seeding - could reduce leaf disease incidence of powdery mildew and net blotches and was profitable, provided there was enough nitrogen for plants to respond to the extra potassium," Dr Brennan said. "..

A study has confirmed that potassium applied early in the growing season can boost wheat yields during drought, and has provided further evidence of the need to maintain adequate levels of this nutrient... The recently published Western Australian research also showed that while there may be reduced plant demand for potassium on mildly saline/sodic land, potassium fertiliser can improve barley plant growth on more moderately saline, potassium deficient soils... "Results from the study have highlighted the importance of applying adequate rates of potassium early in the season which can result in significant benefits including protecting crops against drought," Murdoch University researcher Richard Bell said...
