Lyn Brazil says research and extension were vital for him when he was starting out in grain cropping. ".. Lyn started as a poultry farmer, with his father in the 1960s, and progressively moved into grain growing during the 1980s... This year, strong prices and favourable conditions prompted Lyn to increase the area sown to mungbeans, which paid off when they harvested in April, earning $1000 per tonne for a 1.2t/ha crop...

Recent flooding has reinforced southern Queensland grower Luke Arbuckle's commitment to creating a risk-resilient enterprise using twin-sowing and input control... Their 4653-hectare property received 140 millimetres of rain and their 3439ha property received 90mm... In addition to wheat and chickpeas, Luke has grown canola and mustard seed crops for their high market value and benefits as break crops, although so far sorghum and mungbeans have proven difficult to grow in the Arbuckles' farming system...

Kevin Kilby is hoping research will eventually come up with a cheaper, more effective way to control fallow weeds like fleabane... The coming season has the potential - courtesy of well-soaked soils - to deliver above-average yields, but Kevin is quick to point out that recent history has shown nothing can be taken for granted... Kevin soil-tests about 40 per cent of his paddocks to gain a broad picture of his nutrient needs, but hasn't invested in variable-rate technologies, saying weed control has the biggest influence on his crops' performance and that, for the moment, remains the priority...

DAF is seeking permission from growers and land managers to enter properties to collect weed seeds, and will conduct two surveys in Queensland coinciding with winter and summer grain and legume harvests... Weeds targeted in the survey include feathertop Rhodes grass, fleabane, sowthistle, barnyard grass, windmill grass, liverseed grass, annual ryegrass wild oat and Brassica species if present... In Queensland, growers will be contacted prior to paddock visits with a date and an estimated time of visit, and both QDAF and CSU personnel will ensure extra care is taken to make sure boots and clothing are free from weed seeds before entering property...

Locusts then migrate on prevailing weather systems, invading adjacent agricultural areas, including those in southern Queensland... The ability of locusts to invade previously uninfested areas and lay eggs within days, combined with the mobility of flying swarms, makes swarm control particularly difficult for individual landholders... The Australian Plague Locust Commission (APLC) will implement control measures only where the commission considers the locusts to be in sufficient numbers to present an interstate threat...

Research delves into growing issue of insecticide resistance Insecticide resistance in several broad-acre agricultural pests across southern Australia is being investigated through a research project supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... For example, insecticide resistance in redlegged earth mites to synthetic pyrethroids was first discovered in Australia only a few years ago on a property in Western Australia, and since then this resistance has spread across 15 different properties, spanning a distance of 450.. Dr Umina said that to develop management strategies aimed at limiting the widespread development of resistance in these pests, a better understanding of the spread and frequency of insecticide resistance throughout cropping and pasture regions across southern Australia was needed...
