It is recommended that GRDC supports in-service training opportunities for current plant breeders and PhD students at courses run at the International Centre for Plant Breeding Education and Research (ICPBER) at UWA, and internships for plant breeding PhDs in private plant breeding programs... GRDC project UWA00120 (1 July 2007 to 30 June 2010) was designed to attract Australian undergraduates and postgraduates into plant breeding at The University of Western Australia (UWA), develop in-service training opportunities, stimulate research and publication, and to support national collaboration in plant breeding education...

Gains in productivity can be quantified through improvements in the total seasonal water supply accessed by a crop and the conversion of this water to harvestable grain (water use efficiency)... As seasonal water supply is dominated by stored soil water at the start of the season plus in-season rainfall, then there is little growers can do to improve seasonal water supply, except through better..... The expected outcome is to improve the water use efficiency of a paddock and farm by providing the tools for farmers to identify and manage poor performing areas, improve understanding of the factors which cause poor performing patches, and the economic and natural resource management (NRM) benefits to managing these areas differently...

Growers do not have access to varieties with resistance to the key exotic pests and disease... The project will proceed in two phases... The project is about optimizing pesticide sprayapplications by: identifying spray technologies and spray settings with low risk of spraydrift, applying pesticides in accordance with latest knowledge about pest behaviour in response to pesticides andtherefore minimizes the risk of target pests developing resistance, and by using pesticides with documented efficacyagainst target pests...

Economic analysis based on modelling the effect of typical practice changes on farm economic performance indicates the project has resulted in economic benefits of between $19-$42ha/annum of cropping land, a benefit cost ratio of 7.5:1 and an internal rate of return of 63.8% on funds invested... A comprehensive evaluation survey conducted at the conclusion of the project provides quantitative data on practice change and other benefits accruing from the project... Economic analysis based on modelling the effect of typical practice changes on farm economic performance indicated that the project has contributed economic benefits of between $19-$42/ha/ann...

The project will ultimately seek to provide costeffective screening methods that enable pulse chemists to identify genotypes that have preferred cookingandsensoryattributes... The project will provide genetic materials and molecular tools for barley breeders to use in developing new malting barley varieties with minimum riskof head loss... The objectives of the project are to develop a scientific understanding of the genetic control and environmental basis of differences in HLW and screenings in wheat under normal growing conditions, and to developselection tools to help breeding programs developvarieties that willbe less prone to exhibit low HLW andhigh screenings...
