The fungal disease 'blackleg' is the most severe disease of canola in Australia, causing yield loss and in some circumstances total crop failure... Blackleg is primarily controlled by breeding disease resistance into canola cultivars prior to release to industry... The project will assess the level of blackleg resistance in all canola cultivars enabling growers to select a cultivar that is suitable for their farming system and climatic region...

It should be noted that these trials are not intended to substitute for commercial testing and are quite limited in their nature and insufficient to allow the companies to directly identify hybrid combinations... Each year the seed companies provide DPI&F with reports outlining the use they have made of germplasm in breeding and the sales of hybrids that contain DPI&F germplasm which is used to calculate royalty payments... The list will not identify particular line numbers but will detail the year a cross was made, the pedigrees of the lines and the reason the particular cross was made (e.g. ergot resistance) and the number of these lines that are active both in Australia and internationally...

The development of new varieties is moving away from government agencies, reports Helen Olsen.. About 16 companies have been formed in recent years, reflecting a slow but steady shift away from government agencies... Mr Gleeson sees the role of private breeding companies as producing improved varieties for growers in a shorter time, in a market that is rapidly changing...

Growers are invited to bookmark Variety Central on their website browsers to help manage information about the EPR collection system, the EPR rates for different varieties, seed distribution status and links to websites that can help manage compliance with licencing agreements... Mr McGrath describes the website as a key resource for understanding licencing agreements associated with EPR varieties, as well as information about new varieties, fact sheets and information about seed distribution and contact details for the seed companies... "I also include media statements from breeding companies about the release of new varieties in the 'News' section and hope to soon include a summary of all the new variety releases for which seed is available for the first time."..

WA guidelines sought for hybrid canola.. DAFWA senior research officer Mark Seymour says overseas research shows hybrid canola, which is a first cross produced from two parents, has the advantage of early vigour, weed competition, nitrogen efficiency and yields. ".. Farmers are discouraged from retaining hybrid canola seed due to genetic variation in subsequent generations, and retaining seed is not permitted by seed companies for RR varieties," he says...

Drought resistant hybrids for Central Queensland (CQ), Darling Downs and north-west New South Wales (NW NSW) will consolidate maize production... Five inbreds with good resistance to polysora rust and high yield potential were released, and these materials are now being evaluated by seed companies... The season, 30 elite materials were evaluated across South Burnet, Central Queensland (herbicide residue resulted in poor stand establishment the trial was not harvested) and Darling Downs...

With the recent lifting of the moratorium on GM canola in the south eastern states, we anticipate a number of growers will participate in our commercial pilot of Roundup Ready canola in 2008... Standards for managing the technology Monsanto Australia will manage the technology in line with the requirements of government agencies (including the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator and the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority) and industry bodies... Monsanto Standards (Agreements) Agreements between Monsanto Australia and key parties (including growers, canola seed companies and grain marketers) specify actions to manage the technology in a manner that is consistent with this stewardship strategy...

While sorghum hybrids with varying levels of resistance are continuing to emerge in the marketplace, there is an expectation by industry that the scheme should continue to provide midge resistance ratings for these hybrids... The requirement has been recognised by each of the commercial seed companies which have agreed to continue funding of the scheme; DAFF, which supports the scheme with staff, facilities and in-kind contributions required to undertake testing, as well as GRDC, which is continuing funding of the scheme at least until 2014... We gave a presentation at the annual Australian Sorghum Research Group meeting (AusSORGM) at Cedar Creek in 2010...

" Print the page We conduct a maize pre-breeding program in collaboration with the Grains Research and Development Corporation... The program develops inbred lines that can be used by seed companies to develop improved commercial hybrids that are profitable and compatible with maize industry requirements in Australia... The breeding program works to develop germplasm (a genetic resource) that: has excellent resistance to leaf, stem and ear diseases is better adapted to Australian weather conditions is suitable for a variety of commercial purposes...
