The project has identified molecular markers linked to quantitative trait loci (QTL) for quality characteristics or disease resistances in both wheat and barley, for use as selection tools in commercial breeding programs... Using a whole genome mapping approach, genetic markers for crown rot, nematode and yellow spot resistance in wheat have been identified as well as for net blotch (net form), spot blotch and covered smut resistance in barley... On the quality side, excellent gains have been achieved in identifying markers for low black point in three sources in wheat and one in barley...

The aims of the project are to:1) characterize available RWA resistant germplasm and a set of Australian cultivars in wheat and barley against available RWA biotypes in France and USA, 2) identify closely linked molecular markers to resistance genes and validate them in Australian wheat and barley backgrounds, and 3) introgress RWA resistance into Australian wheat and barley backgrounds... Crosses will be made between most useful resistant..... Biosecurity threats require international collaboration, as often the pest or disease cannot be brought to Australia even for research purposes...

Field pea sowing guide can help reduce blackspot risk.. The model was developed by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), in collaboration with the South Australian Research and Development Institute and Victoria's Department of Primary Industries, under a Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) funded project...

Precision sowing of cereal crops between previous winter cereal rows (inter-row sowing) has the potential to limit the severity and incidence of CR and common root rot (CRR) in a no-till farming system (Ground Cover Issue 57)... Demonstrated that canola and mustard are excellent breaks for CR in northern New South Wales (NSW)... During the five years of this project , 2986 plots, 4208 individual rows and 986 on-farm samples were established, maintained and assessed for various disease management options...

" IWM as a tool to prevent herbicide resistance becoming an impediment to sustainable farming ACR4 Start Date: 01/04/2001.. With herbicide resistant ryegrass threatening to engulf the Western Australian (WA) wheat industry, a project was started in 1997 to demonstrate the feasibility of using options other than selective herbicides to combat this problem and provide for profitable cropping... As the problem was the presence of ryegrass, success could be measured by its absence or, alternatively, its presence in low numbers...

The study set out to understand the existing constraints on the capacity to manage salinity... While recent dry seasons have meant that salinity has "gone off the boil" somewhat as an issue in Western Australia, our analysis shows that the area of saline land continues to increase on farm at the expense of farm profits and degradation of natural resources... Outcomes from the project apply to approximately 2 million hectares of low to medium rainfall mixed farming land in the WA wheatbelt along with other areas in Australia with similarities in groundwater flow systems, area of saline land, farming systems and productivity levels...

While sorghum hybrids with varying levels of resistance are continuing to emerge in the marketplace, there is an expectation by industry that the scheme should continue to provide midge resistance ratings for these hybrids... The requirement has been recognised by each of the commercial seed companies which have agreed to continue funding of the scheme; DAFF, which supports the scheme with staff, facilities and in-kind contributions required to undertake testing, as well as GRDC, which is continuing funding of the scheme at least until 2014... We gave a presentation at the annual Australian Sorghum Research Group meeting (AusSORGM) at Cedar Creek in 2010...

Stagonospora nodorum and Pyrenophora tritici-repentis use specific proteins called effectors to cause disease... The project is focused on understanding how these effector proteins cause disease... As the target audience of this project will eventually be the breeders, the identification of wheat genes and pathways that are responsible for propagating disease in this project will be delivered as identified and verified...

The sources of risk in agriculture are numerous and diverse... There have been a number of studies identifying various aspects of production risk due to seasonal variation; the key issue this project is addressing... The risk management framework requested will be an effective means of utilising this past research (eg Zheng et al 2012, Hammer and Stone 1998) and transforming it to meld with research from this project...

Soil microrganisms also impact on the physical properties of soils including their capacity to hold water... An on-going output will be the coordination of review workshops and reporting processes to ensure that adequate resourcing, integration and consistency measures are being applied across all projects and new opportunities are identified... The major foci of this project are to screen and identify elite diseasesuppressive microbes for cereals and nodulation enhancing beneficial microbes for legumes...
