Soil testing with rake and boot.. Research is updating 'critical soil test values' which is improving interpretation of soil test results and helping Western Australian grain growers make better fertiliser decisions... Findings from crop nutrition research and guidelines to help growers conduct soil testing and apply fertiliser effectively are outlined in a Soil Testing for Crop Nutrition Fact Sheet and More Profit from Crop Nutrition Ground Cover Supplement...

Crop resilience patiently built on soil health.. Stuart says on-farm trials over the past eight years show that inputs costs equate to one tonne of a two tonne per hectare crop but 2t of a 3t/ha crop... "The results show more nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are available when organic matter is introduced, and that there is more stored water in the top 10cm and no limit to the number of microbes, provided there is sufficient organic carbon," Stuart says...

Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, 60-70 per cent of flour is used in traditional flat breads, 20-25 per cent of flour is used in western style breads and 5-10 per cent is used in cakes and biscuits... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil...

KEYMESSAGES Incorrect use of phosphine since the 1950s, has led to escalating resistance in stored grain insects which threatens the continued use of phosphine at the farm level... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil... When running a trial it is important to: 1...

An agronomic research program that can enhance the release of new barley varieties for Western Australia... In the study we aim to quantify the benefit of the current Alt gene and undertake a 'proof of concept' study to see if the inclusion of this Alt gene in future releases might influence the way in which we grow barley... Preliminary results indicate grazing control..

Recommendations are for field pea to be grown on soils with a pH of at least 5, and chickpea to be seeded on soils with a surface pH of a minimum of 5 if the subsoil rises to above 5.5 within 10 to 15cm of the surface... " if the subsurface has not been tested, growers adhering to these recommendations may grow break crops with disappointing yields," Mr Parker said... "If growers follow the recommendations and plant field pea or chickpea crops into soils with a pH minimum of 5 on the soil surface, then 42 per_cent of these paddocks will be unsuitable for chickpea, field pea, legume pasture and, to a lesser extent, barley and canola, due to a declining pH in the subsurface."..

Consultant's Corner: Break crop research digs beneath the surface - The research view.. Information generated from the Putting the Focus on Profitable Break Crops and Pasture Sequences in WA project has highlighted the importance of growers measuring subsurface pH levels, to prevent break crops being seeded onto unsuitable soils... "If growers follow the recommendations and plant field pea or chickpea crops into soils with a pH minimum of 5 on the soil surface, then 42 per_cent of these paddocks will be unsuitable for chickpea, field pea, legume pasture and, to a lesser extent, barley and canola, due to a declining pH in the subsurface."..
