Paul Kamel (left) and Les Zeller on-site at Tammin, WA, with the telemetry equipment installed to relay data on phosphine concentrations directly to a central database... The step would have removed the need for data from the phosphine monitors to be gathered and recorded manually... The automated phosphine monitoring system is designed to gather information including temperature, humidity and the concentration of phosphine being recirculated and also references this data with the silo being recirculated...

Sponge and dough (S&D) bread is a very important end product focus for the Australian export wheat industry... Initially the collaborative project between QDPI&F and CSIRO will characterise current and near to release wheat varieties... The project has three objectives: (1) to identify released or near-release germplasm within existing Australian breeding programs that has the potential to meet market requirements for S&D Bread making (2) to further test and validate observations made on genetic linkages, test methods and selection methodologies derived from completed (QDPI/VAWCRC/BRI project, Graingene Q1 project) and on-going S&D quality projects (other GRDC investments in S&D research)...

For example, some growers still experience problems with hardware... The remote sensing technologies such as EM38s and gamma radiometrics were evaluated for growers... Six paddocks were subsequently surveyed for plant available water content (PAWC) where the drained upper limits and crop lower limits were measured at 123 locations...

The project will generate tools that allow the delivery of durable resistance to rust diseases in the Australian wheat crop through: 1... In the shorter term accurate DNA markers referred to as 'Breeders' Markers' and newly characterised resistance genes will be made available for immediate use by Australian wheat breeders as soon as they are verified and then internationally via peer reviewed publication in scientific journals... The expected outputs of this project are a set of accurate DNA makers for known and new rust resistance genes of high relevance to controlling the three wheat rust species (stem rust, stripe rust and leaf rust) in Australia and overseas...

The varieties have enhanced the quality and productivity of the durum industry in both regions and supported local pasta manufacturers, millers and exporters... Objectives The main objective of the project was to organise durum wheat breeding on a national basis and provide new varieties to the durum industry that maintain the world class quality of Australian grain and provide growers with improvements in yield and disease resistance... Results from 2011 NSW NVT have indicated a 10% yield improvement in Caparoi over Wollaroi and a 6% yield improvement over EGA Bellaroi whilst maintaining the quality standards set by EGA Bellaroi...
