Catalogue: GRDC Updates
Wheat varietal classification together with wheat receival standards aims to deliver grain of consistent physical quality, processing performance and end-product quality to customers and end-users in a differentiated form (grades) allowing exporters (or traders) to optimise value capture from markets for the benefit of industry... To achieve consistent differentiated end product quality, wheat varietal classification focuses entirely on the genetic potential of wheat varieties... There is particular emphasis on the need for excellent yellow alkaline noodle making quality...

You typically find that the depth to the salt bulge decreases to the west... We have concluded that chickpeas were not as effective as wheat in adjusting yield components under prolonged water stress... The grain yield in the SF early burn and cultivated treatment (2.5 t/ha) was comparable to the other SF treatments in the dry 2002 season despite having the lowest incidence of crown rot infection...

Precision row placement is likely to have its greatest impact on reducing CR and CRR levels in a no-till farming system with the adoption of GPS guided controlled traffic likely to further benefit this approach... Its main impact on crop productivity has been shown to occur through the disruption of the plants ability to use water efficiently to produce grain (Figure 6)... Plant early in areas of low frost risk, such as higher slopes, and reduce the risk of frost damage by planting more than one variety and by varying planting times...

Soil testing can be used to assess the likely nutrient constraints, but soil testing and soil test interpretation is not a precise science... To summarise a number of trial results, some sites had consistent increases in crop growth for crop-after-crop; others were more hit-and-miss... Nutrient rates used are 40 kg P (MAP or a fluid source), 200 kg K (SOP or MOP), and 40-80 kg S (SOA or ATS), with the high application rates designed to allow impacts to be followed through an extended crop rotation...

Maximise yield with protein knowledge.. Protein testing grain sorghum at harvest should be routine practice if growers want to maximise the profitability of their crops... According to the Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), grain sorghum protein levels (at 13.5 percent moisture) of less than 9pc indicates acute nitrogen deficiency, 9-10pc indicates marginal nitrogen deficiency while levels above 10pc suggest that nitrogen is adequate and not adversely impacting yield...

The work showed that Touchdown Broadacre Tm (TD- BA) offered ~96% control but another formulation of a Group M herbicide at comparable use rates only controlled 10% at 52 days after application (DAA)... A group M herbicide @ 2lt/ha followed by a double knock of Sprayseed Tm offered moderate improvement in control (61% control @ 52 DAA)... The summary of the results of this trial is shown in Graph 1 below...
