National project brings together soils research.. The new GRDC-funded 'Soil constraints initiative - coordination and communication' project has been providing a national approach to the diagnosis and management of soil constraints.. The annual value of lost agricultural production in Australia caused by soil constraints including compaction, sodicity, salinity (dryland and primary/transient), acidity, alkalinity, and toxicity of boron, chloride and aluminium is estimated to be between $1.5 billion and $2 billion a year...

The project was established to provide advice to breeders on how to improve the adaptability of crops in the high rainfall zone (HRZ) of southern Australia so that yields could be lifted closer to potential... Information from the project needs to be extended to growers to provide guidance as to the likely impacts of different management strategies on the germplasm currently available... 2. Better understand crop growth and development of existing germplasm in the HRZ Field experiments were conducted to provide information relating to how current commercial germplasm (wheat, barley, canola and pulses) captured resources and the efficiency with which these crops converted these resources to biomass and grain...

Through a national series of 40 trials and 20 Soil 2 Grain workshops, this project generated a series of guidelines on the tactical use of agrichemicals and nitrogen (N) in cereals during stem elongation... Disease management outputs included the construction of a green leaf duration calculator for making better fungicide decisions, management guidelines for the use of foliar fungicides to control stem rust in wheat, stripe rust control in wheat varieties with adult plant resistance (APR) and powdery mildew in barley... Using a conservative 5% uptake (based on losses estimated by Murray & Brennan of crops with powdery mildew in WA and leaf rust susceptible barley in the northern region) these guidelines could increase margins by an estimated $5 million/year...

The project has shown how the practice of SSM can deliver large, consistent and recurring increases in the yields of cereals, canola and pulse crops grown on Sodosol soils across the HRZ of Victoria... The practice was developed to overcome crop yield constraints caused by dense clay subsoils that are widespread across the HRZ. Low aeration in the clay limits deep root growth into the subsoil and this has been identified as a cause for the generally disappointing crop yields in the Victorian HRZ. Earlier research demonstrated how SSM can transform the physical properties of the clay layers... For sites with the 1/2 SSM treatment (6 site x seasons), the commercial wheat crop yielded an average of 6.2t/ha, the full SSM 9.7t/ha, and the 1/2 SSM 8.8 t/ha (42% response).This was surprising and suggests that this lower rate of manure incorporation will also give increases in grain yield...

The National Mungbean Improvement Program (NMIP) has developed the next generation varieties and germplasm that will surpass Crystal and deliver further productivity and reliability gains to the northern region growers and the Australian mungbean industry... Stage 1 trials (first year replicated testing in 2010-11) - 16 lines 10 to 23 per cent higher yielding than Crystal... Seventy three lines in Stage 1 MET have an AusTRC321818 pedigree and ten of these had higher yields than Crystal in 2010-11...
