Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
Most of the weed seedbank remains on the soil surface where exposure to light could have an important in uence on the germination behaviour of B. diandrus and B. rigidus... Across the experiment, germinability of B. rigidus from the in-crop habitat was found to be slow and incomplete, and populations of B. rigidus collected from Minlaton and Warooka on the YP showed no germination at all in light/dark conditions at any of the tested time-points (Fig. 1)... In summary, strong differences in light/dark germinability were observed in the collected populations of B. diandrus and B. rigidus right through until the end of the growing season (end of September), with B. rigidus germination never exceeding 40%...

A pilot study at Mingenew, Western Australia, led by Associate Professor Christian Nansen of the University of Western Australia (UWA) shows growers may be compromising seed viability (germination) by storing grain in non-aerated silos... Associate Professor Christian Nansen, from the University of Western Australia, inspects stored grain in front of a seed silo in Mingenew, where trials are underway to assess grain storage systems... PHOTO: Ben White "The study demonstrates the potential that aeration has in areas such as Mingenew, which was previously considered too hot and dry to warrant the installation of cooling fans," he says...

KEYMESSAGES Producing pasture legume seed from a nursery paddock can dramatically reduce the seed cost associated with a large scale pasture improvement program... RESULTS The end cost of pasture seed produced on-farm has been calculated at two levels, a conservative average yield and a high yield that could be expected in favourable seasons... An important point is the higher seed content and higher rates of extraction in French serradella that results in a lower cost structure for this species compared to yellow serradella (Table 4)...
