"In preliminary glasshouse and field trials, we have found that acacias inoculated with beneficial strains of a nitrogenfixing bacteria called Bradyrhizobium survive better and grow faster than un-inoculated acacias," Dr Thrall says... Of particular interest is the extent to which re-introduction of beneficial organisms helps plants to withstand environmental stresses like soil salinity and competition with exotic weeds...

Future projects maintain management groups with growers, agribusiness and RD&E agency representation and with real decision-making power... Future projects maintain a balance between productivity and sustainability activities, research and extension activities, activities in different locations and different lobby groups to avoid the capture of project resources and so ensure benefits across the wider industry... 'Best' use of water affects other properties of the soil and the impacts of modern farming practices (e.g. zero tillage, controlled traffic, and wide rows) are becoming evident...

A research project in the Great Southern region has demonstrated that the decision tool Yield Prophet could help local growers maximise crop yields and minimise risks associated with management decisions... "Following a number of extremely variable seasons, many growers in the region have lacked the confidence to implement management practices to maximise yields, and have been taking an approach of 'less risk' for their in-season decision making," Mr Whisson said... Mr Whisson said the benefit of Yield Prophet to local growers over the course of the season was obvious, especially when it came to making nitrogen and fungicide decisions based on forecast yield, as well as providing side benefits such as yield estimates for insurance purposes...

Ripper trials to overturn compaction constraints.. The brothers say soil constraints associated with compaction, including acidity, sodicity and aluminium toxicity, affect part of every paddock on their 23,000-hectare property, with yield losses of up to 0.5 tonnes/ha in some areas... "We hope the deep-ripping coupled with applying organic matter in the root zone will help crop roots to proliferate, the soil to open up and maybe also overcome some soil chemical problems," Dr Blackwell says...
