" GRDC Crop Updates 23-24 February 2011, Western Region, Perth WA, Michael Robertson 17 September 2013 Michael Robertson, CSIRO, talks about Pros & cons of dry seeding to counter variable seasonal breaks... In many regions of the wheatbelt the timing of opening rains has become more variable and the number of days available for seeding has declined, putting pressure on the seeding operation and lending to more interest in drying cereals... Growers differ in approach to dry seeding, from a planned approach with set percentage of the program to be dry sown, through to an aggressive approach where a large percentage of the program could be dry sown if opening rains are late...

Give early seeding technique a dry run.. "Studies supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have shown that, overall, dry seeding will give you an advantage in well managed conservation farming systems, especially in dry years," he said... Dr Minkey said a new GRDC funded project, involving WANTFA, CSIRO and the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), was refining guidelines for successful early sowing, including tips on reducing the risks and increasing profits...

Chocolate spot is the most important disease of faba beans in Victoria and South Australia... A non-aggressive phase, when discrete reddish-brown spots are "peppered" over the leaves and stems, and then an aggressive phase, when spots darken in colour and coalesce to form larger grey-brown target spots (Figure 2) that may eventually cover the entire plant... Chocolate spot occurs in all areas where faba beans are grown, causing losses ranging from minor to complete failure of a crop...

Spurred by the frustration of this waste in his soybeans, mungbeans and wheat, Gary has invented a device that lifts and channels grain from the header knife onto the draper front... Gary, who crops 323 hectares at Ascot, Queensland, 35 kilometres south of Toowoomba, says dry conditions late in the season, which exacerbated grain spillage at harvest because his soybeans were stunted and more prone to pod shatter, led him to explore ideas for a device that might help him, and other growers, capture more grain fragile crops... Adapting the spray-suppressant bristles used on the mudguards of trucks to reduce road splash by diverting water down wheel arches, Gary trialled a series of prototypes in a range of crops and conditions before finalising the current design...

The organisations involved in this research do not endorse the use of herbicides above the registered rate or off label use of herbicides or tank mixes... It must be emphasised that crop tolerance and yield responses to herbicides are strongly influenced by seasonal conditions... Crop stage at 4 Leaves + 4 Leaves + 4 Leaves + spraying Treatment comparisons were made with Simazine 2 - 2.5L/ha applied before seeding...

Results show a 1kg/ha seeding rate increase provides positive returns.. When growers are expecting low establishment due to sandy or heavy soils, or a dry start to the season, increasing the seeding rate by around 1kg/ha can make a significant difference to yield," Mr Mock says... Herbicides evaluated in the trials for carryover effects on canola were 2,4-D ester, 2,4-D amine and Intervix ...
