Early work on canola focused on weed management strategies including the breeding of herbicide tolerant canola varieties such as triazine tolerant (TT) varieties which now account for an estimated 90% of canola grown in WA... Research is still being conducted to determine the effect of these viruses on the yield of canola in WA. European work has found seed yield losses of 10-15% associated with this virus disease in canola... The amount of air passed through the grain is measured in litres per second per tonne and varies depending on the particular aeration strategy...

A canola ruler, developed as part of the GRDC-funded DAFWA Tactical Break Crop Agronomy project, gives growers a quick way to calculate seeding rates... Canola growers in Western Australia have a simple but effective new tool to aid establishment and reduce seeding costs... Growers would have to count out 1000 seeds and weigh them on scales that can measure 0.1 of a gram (or count out more seeds for less accurate scales) to estimate the number of seeds per kilogram...

With half of his 2023-hectare cropping program sown to canola, it is imperative that Lower Eyre Peninsula farmer David Giddings applies best-management practices to avoid the fungal disease blackleg... "In the region the density of canola makes it impossible to sow 500 metres from last year's canola stubble, as recommended, so I have to apply all other management options vigilantly," David says... "Previously we sowed canola at 5kg/ha but reducing the seeding rate and sowing earlier has seen an improvement in disease, yield and water use efficiency across our sandy loam soils, many of which have a sodic subsoil."..

Irrigated wheat appears to have a similar optimum planting rate to dryland: around 40kg/ha (100 plants/m2), possibly lower if the seed is going to be concentrated on top of a bed with large furrow gaps between beds. Planting higher rates than this will increase lodging susceptibility and could cause yield loss if it induces greater rates of lodging... Further work will be needed to experiment with different timings of N application to see how sensitive the strategy is to the date of N application, and if any slow release fertiliser products would be of benefit... Yield and water use benchmarks Preliminary analysis has been undertaken to determine the maximum yields that can be achieved from irrigated wheat in the northern region, and how much water is required by the crop in order to achieve these yields...

The Achievable Yields project is aiming to set yield and water use benchmarks for irrigated wheat in the northern region, while also helping growers address the main agronomic challenges that prevent them from maximising grain yield... Reducing sowing rate for lodging control: 2009 trials In 2008, very high seeding rates of 200+ seeds/m2 were used in many locations for irrigated wheat (or approximately 80kg/ha of seed or higher)...

Northern chickpea growers are advised to sow at optimal seeding rates, irrespective of sowing date, to ensure early canopy closure and minimise the risk of viruses... Dr Andrew Verrell, NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) research agronomist says recent research supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) shows growers should sow chickpeas at optimal seeding rates - irrespective of sowing date... Dr Verrell says there are more than 14 species of virus that naturally infect chickpeas and are spread by airborne insects, particularly aphids...
