Pioneering Western Australian research into techniques to control weed seeds in grain paddocks at harvest time has received international recognition... Dr Walsh said the research, funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), proved that a high level of weed seeds is retained at wheat crop harvest time, providing further evidence of the effectiveness of harvest weed seed control (HWSC) in preventing weeds from replenishing the seed bank... "The research demonstrated that the four dominant annual weeds of Australian cropping systems - annual ryegrass, wild radish, brome grass and wild oats - retain 77 to 95 per cent of their seeds above a harvest cut height of 15cm at wheat crop maturity," he said...

Working in CSIRO's Food Futures Flagship, Mr Wang has adapted CT scanning methods (computerised x-ray micro-tomography) normally used to determine the porosity and permeability of rocks in oil exploration research to better understand how dough structure affects bread quality... Using the x-ray technique, Mr Wang has generated three-dimensional maps of the pore structure, or air spaces, inside dough and bread made from flour with low and high protein... "I found that the gold-standard breads made from commercial bread flour used in South-East Asia had a high pore space, or porosity, with 99.9 per cent of pores forming one big interconnecting pore space and a tiny proportion existing as closed pores within the solid bread," Mr Wang says...
