Hybrids show strength in NSW canola study.. Large-seeded hybrids tended to establish better than open-pollinated varieties when sown deeper than normal, a common requirement in northern NSW and Queensland.. The research showed grain yield generally responded positively to increasing plant population, up to 20 plants per square metre, regardless of variety type ( Figure 2 )...

The aim of the work was to identify agronomic management practices that enabled triticale to express its full genetic potential for competitive growth against the vigorous weedy competitor Lolium rigidum ... Given the competitive growth habit of triticale, the aim of the present work was to identify the agronomic management practices that enable the genetic potential for competitive growth to be expressed phenotypically... Most of the experiments evaluating the effect of row spacing and level of cultivation in cereals have been performed on wheat there is little data specifically for triticale...

Australian cereal growers adopting harvest weed seed control systems (HWSC) are driving down weed populations to lower levels on their farms, and extending the life of the herbicides they use... Dr Walsh said the problem of herbicide resistant weed populations globally was particularly severe in production systems where herbicide dependence resulted in a lack of weed control diversity... "Although herbicides remain the number one weed control tool in Australian cropping systems, it is now clear that the inclusion of HWSC systems in weed management programs is enabling weed populations to be driven to very low levels, providing some insurance for the sustainability of remaining herbicide resources," he said...

He estimates 90 per cent of the 2400 hectares he uses for cropping on his farm does not wet-up on the surface (0 to 10-centimetre layer) during the growing season unless there is a major rain event... Benefits of claying "On the treated areas, we have probably doubled our crop yields in favourable seasons - although seasonal variation makes it hard to gauge what the actual gains have been," Clint says... Clint says a major benefit of claying is that weeds germinate in a tighter period in the first year, allowing an effective first knockdown herbicide application...

The committee suggested more research is required into the measure of economic loss from GE contamination... In summary, under National Standards, organic certification in Australia means an organic farmer must have no GE inputs, grow no GE crops, and no GE presence in final product or on farm... The issue of the co-existence of these different agricultural systems has become an issue for Australian agriculture...
