This species of grass was most commonly used in an intensive grazing dairy system where it would run 40 head of cattle on 0.6 ha for three days with a rest period of 28-32 days (Moreira, 2012)... Recent reports would suggest that psyllid damage is sometimes reduced and stocking rates have in places returned to normal... As shown below FTAI has the ability to increase the percentage of cows in calf...

" GRDC Grains Research Updates 22-23 February 2012, Southern Region, Adelaide SA. Larn McMurray 20 September 2013 Larn McMurray, SARDI, talks about Pulse varieties and agronomy update... Careful variety selection through knowing the strengths and weaknesses of each variety along with the correct implementation of recommended agronomic management packages will increase the likelihood of maximising grain yield and quality in pulses for 2012... A number of new pulse releases occurred in 2011 but most of these have specific agronomic or marketing advantages that will complement variety releases in 2010 which generally had more widespread adaptation...

Sustainable management of most cereal diseases can be achieved by avoiding susceptible and very susceptible cultivars... A graphical representation of the relative effect of increasing pre-sowing crown rot inoculum levels, as determined using PredictaB, on grain yield loss (%) in three cereals in seasons with below average combined September and October rainfall (left) and above average rainfall for the same period (right) using 26 data sets collected in Victoria and South Australia during the years 2005 to 2010 (Hollaway et al. 2013)... There will be a greater need to monitor and apply foliar fungicides in wetter seasons...

x Make use of available testing services to determine nematode species and levels, but be aware that PreDicta-B cannot currently detect some of the nematodes present in WA crops... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 72.. Overall, lupin was resistant, but Mandelup and Belara resulted in a nematode multiplication rate > 1...

" Rotations to reduce impact of nematodes in Western cereal cropping systems DAW00124 Start Date: 01/07/2005.. Results for Pratylenchus penetrans indicate that RLN could possibly adapt to different hosts, depending on cropping history... To optimise the management of RLN with the use of rotations, these weeds should be controlled in cropping paddocks...

Thirteen developmental and commercially available seed applied fungicides were evaluated in the glasshouse and the field for their potential use in reducing SFNB severity... Four commercially available barley cultivars (Barque ,A Cowabbie, Schooner ,A VB9104) known to possess either complete, seedling or adult resistance to SFNB were evaluated in the field... In the glasshouse seedlings from the DPN (wheat), EBDSN (barley) and/or NVT (wheat and barley) lines were evaluated for reaction to yellow leaf spot (wheat) and spot and net forms of net blotch (barley)...

One or more species of RLN (Root Lesion Nematode, Pratylenchus spp.) occur in at least 60% of WA cropping paddocks... P. thornei occurs rarely; P. neglectus is the most frequent RLN identified in WA, occurring in at least 40% of paddocks; P. teres is found in 10% of paddocks... It is imperative that the species of RLN is correctly identified to enable growers to deploy appropriate crop varieties and species to minimise current and future losses...

In many cropping soils of south-eastern Australia the presence of nematodes limits field crop production... Recent reports by Murray and Brennan (2009 a & b) estimated that in south-eastern Australia alone, nematodes are currently reducing wheat and barley production by 4.9% ($98 million) and 5.1% ($42 million) respectively, with losses in excess of 20% possible in the absence of appropriate control strategies... Growers can minimise yield loss caused by the nematodes in two ways...
