By Brendon Cant One in five Australian graingrowers use some form of controlled-traffic farming (CTF), and the view at the 5th Australian Controlled Traffic Farming and Precision Agriculture Conference (CTF 2007) was that this number is on the rise as the technique becomes more widely practised... The GRDC-supported conference in Perth in September gave researchers, agribusiness representatives and growers a chance to discuss the different approaches to applying CTF to individual properties, soil types, farming systems and cashflow...

The potential to dramatically increase chickpea yields by up to one tonne per hectare through a simple change in row spacing is set to deliver increased profit margins for Dalby grain grower Glenn Milne... "We were growing chickpeas on 30 inch or roughly 75cm row spacings but because the trial showed there was a significantly higher yield on offer we have already halved our row spacings to 15" (37cm) - all we did was double planted them with our 30" planter to get our 15" row spacing... " Mr Milne owns and leases a total of 600 hectares of highly fertile black soil country on the Jimbour Plain just north of Dalby, growing dryland sorghum, chickpeas, faba beans, mung beans, barley and wheat, as well as some irrigated cotton and corn...

Robocrop offers precision warfare on weeds.. Intended to be accurate enough to till between 20-centimetre row spacings without damaging the crop, Robocrop offers the chance to control resistant weeds, plus allow precisely placed fertiliser, after the crop is established... The operator pre-programs the computer with the row spacing, and the camera recognises the discernable line of the crop in the row and adjusts the cultivation tines ...

New ways to manage weeds in no-till.. Growing inter-row saia oats, and using knife rolling, proved the most efficient way of controlling weeds in a series of trials done by the South Australian No-Till Farmers Association... On the Yorke Peninsula and at Hart, Krichauff wheat was sown at 90 kilograms per hectare on 28-centimetre (11-inch) row spacing with all plots top-dressed prior to sowing with 12kg/ha ryegrass to provide a consistent weed burden...

Research is being undertaken to investigate a range of agronomic (i.e. water and nutrient use) and weed management issues for several crops (faba beans, wheat and barley) grown on wide-rows in southern Australia... Weed management opportunities under wide-rows In 2006, a field experiment was undertaken on Roseworthy Campus to evaluate inter- and intra-row herbicide application strategies for the control of ARG in faba beans grown on wide-rows (54 cm)... In the absence of weed control, faba beans grown on wide-rows were unable to compete with ARG (189 plants/m2) and produced very little grain yield (156 kg/ha) (Table 1)...

PLANTING CHICKPEAS in rows spaced wider than the conventional 19 cm has its advantages... While not reducing the incidence of fungal diseases like Ascochyta, wide row spacings do allow growers to spray over the rows only - and this reduces overall spraying costs... The proportion of the plot area being covered was calculated and the chemical rate adjusted ...
