Pulse Breeding Australia (PBA) will host its inaugural pulse conference in Adelaide (South Australia) in October... The conference, themed "Expanding Horizons", will build on existing collaboration across five temperate pulse crops, while providing an opportunity for the pulse industry - from growers to agronomists, marketers and researchers - to seek innovative solutions to developing better varieties for Australian growers... Caption: Expanding Australian pulse production to more than 15 per cent of the nation's total cropping area will be the thrust of a first-of-its-kind pulse industry conference later this year...

The National Mungbean Improvement Program (NMIP) has delivered immediate productivity and profitability gains to Northern Region growers and set the foundation to deliver the next generation of varieties that will increase crop reliability and grower confidence... From the foundation, NMIP will develop the next generation of mungbean varieties which combine productivity gains, yield stability and specific adaptation to regional and irrigated production to further increase grower confidence and adoption of mungbeans... Two hundred and sixty new lines developed in this project were evaluated in Stage 1 yield trials at Biloela, Hermitage and Narrabri in 2007/08...

But technology capable of taking highresolution photographs of up to 10,000 grains per sample and comparing them against a standard reference in as little as two to three minutes promises to change all that... Because of the international nature of the project, Mr McMullen says that varieties from other exporting countries will need to be added to the reference files compiled in Australia... Mr McMullen says manufacturers of the technology know that because of the rapid advances in their industry the prototypes will rapidly become obsolete, so they are making substantial investments in ongoing technical developments...

Pulse industry mourns John Slatter.. Presenting the award, GRDC Northern Panel chairman Ian Buss said he agreed with the view that, through his tireless promotion of pulses in rotations, John Slatter had probably done more for the uptake of good agronomy in the northern region than any other individual. ".. Similarly Brondwen MacLean, the GRDC"s manager for pulse and oilseed breeding, said grains industry people who knew John Slatter would support the argument that his rejection of political correctness - and his willingness to "ruffle a few feathers" for the good of the cause - were major factors in his successes for Pulse Australia...

Pulse Breeding Australia will conduct a world class field pea breeding program that will deliver superior new varieties with increased productivity and profitability for field pea growers and which will expand the crops adaptation range in Australia... The program will aim to combine desirable genetic variation that will increase grain yield potential, reduce crop input costs, reduce crop risk and maintain grain market access... The PBA field pea breeding program will deliver superior field pea varieties for the major field pea production zones over the next 5 year period that combine improved yield potential and reliability, disease resistance (e.g. virus, mildew, blackspot, bacterial blight), adaptation (e.g. plant type, flowering habit, soil boron toxicity tolerance) and suitable grain for end use markets (e.g. Kaspa type, Dun type)...

Australian pulse producers must listen to the consumer to ensure that the size and quality of the pulses they grow are aligned with market requirements... A grower of broad and faba beans on his family's mixed farming property at Conmurra in South Australia's Lower South-East, Mr Seears says most pulses are bought on a visual basis; "so it is imperative to make sure what we do in the paddock doesn't cut access to markets"... "After asking a number of farmers for some insight it became evident to me that so many farmers didn't have a good understanding of what is required to turn the pulse that is grown on-farm into a consumable product that is eaten all over the world," said Mr Seears...

By Rebecca Thyer Working closely with Pulse Breeding Australia (PBA), Victorian Department of Primary Industries (DPI) pulse agronomist Jason Brand is bringing genetics and management together to ensure new traits are better utilised... Mr Brand says crop yields are made up of three components - genotype, environment and management. ".. We're helping to ensure that traits implemented in the breeding program are used optimally, and we also feed relevant information back into the breeding system," he says...
