Put science behind decisions for farm profitability.. Proficient and timely agronomic management is one of the key drivers of crop profitability and there are a myriad of tools available to help growers make informed choices on crop and varietal selection, crop rotation, plant available water capacity and soil/plant nutrition while managing the risks of pests and diseases... The practical tools are complemented by a wealth of statistical data which is continuously gathered, analysed and interpreted through projects like the Statistics for the Australian Grain Industry (SAGI) project supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)...

Subsoil phosphorus deficiencies identified in long-term research across the northern grain-growing region have spurred a new approach to fertiliser application for the Black family at Brookstead in south-east Queensland... The Blacks - brothers Laurie and Jim, along with Jim's son Peter - have invested in an Orthman (1tRIPr) strip tillage machine designed to cultivate the seedbed and place fertiliser down to a depth of 20 centimetres in the soil... The aim is to address phosphorus deficiency in the subsoil, as opposed to the topsoil, which research has revealed is limiting yields by between 10 and 20 per cent on their 1618-hectare cotton and grain property...

Profitable progress needs science.. GRDC board member John Woods reminded the near 600 attendees at the WA Agribusiness Crop Updates in February that Australian grain growers are competing against the world and that research to overcome crop production constraints was central to meeting this challenge... Mr Woods cited national farm finance figures showing growers who achieved the greatest profit margins were those who had adopted R&D outcomes: "A 10 per cent yield increase delivers a 37 per cent margin increase...
