Dual purpose canola would provide an excellent break crop for winter cereals in the high rainfall zone, and potentially improve the profitability and flexibility of mixed farming operations... The final biomass and yield of the canola in the grazed and un-grazed areas was measured from two hand harvested quadrats (1.08 m x 0.4 m) taken at physiological maturity in each plot and oil content measured using NMR. Results Seasonal conditions The years 2004 to 2006 experienced dry autumn conditions and irrigation was required to establish the experiments (Table 1)... Biomass removed by grazing, and the impact of grazing on yield and oil for three canola varieties at Ginninderra Experiment Station, 2004...

The project will focus on trying to improve the reliability and predictability of producing malt barley (cultivar Gairdiner)... Tasmania growers are asked to supply 100% of the malt barley requirement for Boags (Launceston) and Cascade (Hobart) breweries if possible... Plan: Two replicated barley trials to investigate yield/protein targets...

In the study, a two-tiered approach was adopted to provide better long-lead seasonal forecasts for Australian grain growers... The Extreme Event Information System developed in this project needs to be further refined to enable it to indicate serious droughts such as those that developed in 2006 and 2007... Forecasting systems need to list their forecasts from the past few years prior to the crop season so farmers can assess whether they can use them with confidence...

The RCSNs - comprising growers and industry professionals in each port zone - have also invested limited discretionary GRDC funds into 'fast-tracked', short-term projects to address pressing crop production constraints facing local growers... Growers may be interested to know that the GRDC has increased its investment in WA RCSN projects to $750,000 this year... The GRDC looks forward to extending the results from these and other 2014 RCSN projects when they become available...

GRDC western regional panel chairman Peter Roberts said the RCSNs were a vital part of the GRDC's issues identification process for the western grain growing region... Ms Hill said the GRDC RCSN initiative had created valuable links between growers, GRDC personnel, researchers and other industry representatives and increased the GRDC's 'on the ground' presence in WA... Prior to her role as GRDC RCSN coordinator, Ms Hill worked for several years for the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) and with her husband owned and ran a broadacre farm at Ravensthorpe until 2010...

, a forum to allow stakeholder participation, i.e., provide feedback, review information contained in the database and discuss pesticide related research initiatives, would occur... The outputs of the database will be presented to stakeholders such as researchers, regulators and registrants with a view to providing information and seeking feedback on the research either underway or proposed... The intent of the project is to firstly provide better co-ordination whereby researchers can check what has been done previously as well as provide a mechanism to inform other key stakeholders, such as registrants, of what research is being done where...

The project has provided a resource to help the wheat and barley industries control fungal diseases... New sources of resistance were identified to help with the more intractable diseases and these were introgressed into adapted varieties for use by breeders... The project has provided the resources to conduct genetic studies into the control of resistance to some diseases...
