The focus of the paper is on this latter category, where inputs are varied according to within-paddock spatial variation and spatial information is used to improve decision-making and management... A snapshot of the current status of PA adoption is presented using available data on variable rate fertiliser management and yield mapping across regions... A snapshot of current adoption The results presented in Table 1 capture just two aspects of precision agriculture on a national scale that includes 5 selected SA regions (see report cited below for further details)...

KEYMESSAGES Incorrect use of phosphine since the 1950s, has led to escalating resistance in stored grain insects which threatens the continued use of phosphine at the farm level... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil...
