Queensland has seen rapid adoption of conservation farming practices over the past 20 years, particularly on the Darling Downs where the bulk of the State's grain is produced... At the conclusion of the project, we aim to produce cost-effective, sustainable farm management guidelines that will enable Queensland grain producers to reduce crop and associated yield losses caused by mice... RESULTS Preliminary statistical analysis indicates that while the continued drought conditions have reduced mice populations to very low levels, there are still many more mice trapped on the untreated properties than on the treated ones as seen in Figure 1...

Growers have begun recording mouse activity on their properties as part of Mouse Census Week which aims to provide farmers, the grains industry and researchers with an unprecedented bank of data about mouse activity in agricultural areas... Farmers and advisers are encouraged to play a role in the census from April 13 to 19 by recording mouse activity via MouseAlert, which is a website and recently-released app aimed at improving early warning of possible plagues to enable a rapid response to increases in mouse activity... "During Mouse Census Week, farmers can easily record mouse activity and hot spots by using MouseAlert on their smartphone, tablet or computer," Mr Henry said...

Experience as a research officer with the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) meant that Matt Dare hit the ground running when he left the institute and began farming outside Clare in 2000... Because his work with SARDI had focused on no-till research, single pass seeding and the mechanical aspects of no-till, he felt confident moving straight into no-till... Mr Dare says the biggest benefits of no-till are probably fewer tractor hours, timeliness of sowing and moisture conservation, which he has been able to see since he began cropping at Clare...

Silage stacks cut from forage sorghum grown on 'Strathmore' and used for finishing prime cattle... Increased local grain productivity is seen as the key to also lifting beef production.. As northern agriculture expands as a whole, including feedlots and the trend towards more supplementary feeding, he expects local demand for grain sorghum to keep rising - in addition to export options...

Ryan Forsyth with his father, Rodney, have fine-tuned their approach to liming and seeding on their property at Kellerberrin, east of Perth... The endeavour has meant taking part in on-farm research trials and also undertaking and monitoring the everyday 'tweaking' of long-held practices in a bid to improve productivity, profitability and sustainability... A doubling of liming rates has allowed for more barley, which achieves a better margin than wheat, says Ryan, who runs the farm with his wife, Kerry, and his parents, Rod and Judi...

Mr Beeck, 31, who runs a 6257ha property with his wife Jodie and parents Ron and Paula, discovered 12 years ago that soil acidity was hampering crop production on the property, with pH levels as low as 4.6... But in 2002, Mr Beeck switched to variable rate lime application to better direct input rates to the unique needs of each soil type, with rates ranging from 1t/ha to 3t/ha... Some of the many other stories featured in the western edition of the magazine include research into what makes WA's top-performing growers more profitable when compared with other WA growers; and outcomes from a comprehensive survey of herbicide resistance in the WA grainbelt...

The panel system is a key strength of the GRDC, with a cross-section of grain growers, scientists and people from industry to feed in regional priorities and assess funding proposals... Keith Harris (Port Macquarie), Loretta Serafin (Calala), and William Martel (Wellington) will join the northern panel and Neil Fettell (Condobolin), Chris Jones (Condobolin) and John Minogue (Barmedman) will join the southern panel... After completing an Agricultural Economics degree at UNE Armidale, William Martel worked for a grain trading firm and then the Brisbane office of Resource Consulting Services (RCS)...

Coat colour varies on wild dogs.. Wild dogs can spread hydatids (a parasitic disease that can result in human health impacts) and have the potential to spread exotic diseases that affect human beings (e.g. rabies)... There is a risk of wild dogs attacking children in urban areas particularly if the public contribute to habituation and socialisation of wild dogs...
