Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
Researchers identified by GRDC and who have undertaken GRDC-funded, pesticide-related research from 2007 to 2009 were contacted seeking summary information on their projects... The information provided by the researchers has been collected and collated and entered into an online, password-protected database... , the project team receives regular pesticide active ingredient and trade name updates from the APVMA in order to ensure the database is current...

Industry relies heavily on the organophosphorus insecticide dichlorvos # to disinfest grain in unsealed silos... Candidates were evaluated in the laboratory against a range of pests... None of the newer compounds or combinations evaluated in the project was capable of broad-spectrum control at reasonable application rates...

" Reducing the impact of pulse diseases in the northern region (incorporating DAQ00073) DAQ00108 Start Date: 01/07/2006.. The previous year, in collaboration with Pulse Australia, this project had provided many local agronomists with information on recognition of ascochyta blight at a certified chickpea agronomist course at Emerald, and a pre-season chickpea Update attended by over 70 people... Despite the focus on IDM for individual pathogen-host combinations, there is a need to understand the impact of IDM packages on a whole farming system scale on the interrelatedness between all of the plant pathogens in that system...

A reliable and timely crop disease forecast can help growers in managing the disease... With the background, this project is designed to provide grain growers with such tools and/or outputs of the tools as disease risk forecasts to minimise the impact of diseases... The project will deliver two outputs: one, the decision support tools (which forecast disease risk and impact on grain crops) developed from disease epidemiological data, validated in target environments and made available to stakeholders; and two, the current and updated IDM recommendations, support tools and knowledge provided to grain growers in WA, and where applicable in GRDC Southern region, through regular print and electronic publications and in-person extension activities and delivery evaluated against industry needs...

The aim of the project is to overcome the barriers in growing two crops under irrigation in 52 weeks or less... Double cropping entails more than just growing a winter crop then following it with a summer crop... Core sites will be established to enable accurate and intensive investigation following identification of the most critical regional issues identified by the project steering committee, while taking into account relevant prior RD&E.Preliminary issues already identified in the GRDC Irrigation Regional Cropping Solutions (RCS) Network will form the starting point of the project, namely reliable assessment of herbicide residues in irrigated cropping systems, new technology in herbicide tolerant crops and maturity of crop varieties in Northern Victoria...

A new soil test for phosphorus is showing considerable potential for use in Australian calcareous soils, with the help of a PhD project supported by growers and the Australian Government through the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... The test, diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT), was originally developed for testing metal contamination in the soils and waterways of the United Kingdom, but with some modifications it has been found to correlate well with plant response to applied phosphorus in deficient Australian soils... Photo caption: "Dr Sean Mason prepares to test soil samples for available phosphorus" Dr Mason found that DGT readings were more accurate than other tests in calcareous soil types in laboratory trials...
