WA growers embrace key farming practices.. Western Australian grain growers are frontrunners in their adoption of farming practices including no-tillage farming, stubble retention and precision agriculture, according to a recently released report... "Measuring the adoption of farming practices will help us track progress in productivity and environmental management," he said...

Farmers throughout southern Australia continue to seek improved conservation farming strategies, including increased levels of residue retention, reduced soil disturbance, and greater rotation diversity... CSIRO has been monitoring changes in the water balance on the trial since then, and so far we have demonstrated that early crop termination (as part of a cover cropping practice) can increase the risk of dryland salinity under some situations... Increased levels of residue retention have had little impact on the water balance in the short term (6 years), and so farmers can adopt this practice confident that there will be no negative short-term environmental impact due to changes in the water balance...

The GRDC, in partnership with the Australian Government's Caring for our Country program, have worked with Solutions Marketing and Umbers Rural Services to conduct a national survey of growers to capture and present information about the farming practices currently in use on grain and mixed farms across Australia... The information provides an important means for monitoring and evaluating the success of RD&E investments, i.e. the levels of adoption around Australia, identification of successes and gaps, and for assistance in directing future investments, or for modifying existing projects... You will be assisting GRDC with evaluating how well growers are using the outcomes from research, assisting with showing productivity and environmental management and you will receive a report showing how your farm and practices compare to others in your area...
