Current research is helping boost the accuracy of the PreDicta B test in assessing crown rot risk by fine tuning soil sampling techniques and recommendations... PreDicta B is a good technique for identifying the level of risk for crown rot and other soil-borne pathogens prior to sowing within paddocks but requires a dedicated sampling strategy and is not a simple add on to a soil nutrition test... There is no detection issue with the current PreDicta B tests that were resulting in an underestimation of crown rot risk...

GRDC digs the dirt on soil nutrition testing.. Renowned soil scientist, Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI) Principal Research Fellow Dr Mike Bell, will discuss the latest research findings on phosphorus and nitrogen requirements and deliver practical management advice to growers and advisors during Updates in Roma on Wednesday August 5 and in Nindigully on Thursday August 6... Participants at Roma will also hear from CSIRO Senior Farming Systems Scientist Dr Lindsay Bell about a major new farming systems project that addresses constraints to performance and efficiency; Northern Grower Alliance chief executive officer Richard Daniel on management of the potentially devastating pest root lesion nematodes and restoring profitability to affected paddocks while Leader Northern Dryland Cropping Systems with NSW DPI, Loretta Serafin will discuss sorghum agronomy in the western cropping zone with advice for reducing production risk and optimising profitability...

Crop into the future with GRDC Updates.. The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) will raise the bar on crop productivity next month when some of Australia's leading grains researchers visit Moree and Coonamble for the annual GRDC Grain Research Updates to equip growers with practical management advice in areas such as soil nutrition, weed control and grain storage... With crop profitability largely hinging on yield, addressing productivity constraints can make a significant difference to business' bottom lines as well as the long-term sustainability of the farming system...

The tour will visit ground breaking GRDC-funded trials into new crop germplasm, agronomic practices and soil and crop nutrition being conducted at the University of Queensland (UQ) Gatton campus by UQ, CSIRO and Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI)... Being held from Monday September 8 to Wednesday September 10, the tour encompasses two separate groups of GRDC northern panel members, GRDC board members and staff - one touring to the northern rivers region of New South Wales, Toowoomba, Gatton and Kingaroy while the other group will travel from Emerald to Moura and Biloela... At the conclusion of the tour, participants will gather in Brisbane to discuss their observations, industry feedback and suggestions...

GRDC helps grow profitability through soil biology research.. In the past there has been significant research focussed on soil nutrition and structure the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is recognising the fundamental importance of soil biology with investment in three key research areas - disease suppressive soils, nutrient management and soil quality monitoring... Other key findings within the nutrient management work include that minimising fertiliser application at sowing will enhance microbial processing of soil organic N and that molecular tools may be used to assess the mineralisation potential in a wide range of soils...
