Caption: DAFWA research officer Martin Harries says the GRDC-funded Focus Paddock project in WA has identified no adverse wheat productivity impacts of expanded canola plantings at the expense of legumes in crop and pasture sequences... In the northern region, two years of cereals-one year of lupins-one year of canola had an average GM of $280/ha.. Rotations with two years of canola and two years of cereals (W-C-W-C) were popular in the southern agricultural region and had an average GM of $340/ha..

Plan canola rotations to stop sclerotinia stem rot this season.. Dr Khangura said this was due to seasonal conditions causing overlapping of flowering time and coinciding spore release events with flowering in early and late maturing varieties... Other research into sclerotinia in WA will focus on: determining yield losses from disease; continuing work into the efficacy and profitability of crop management practices and fungicide use and timing; and an ongoing assessment of spore release, petal infection and stem rot levels to improve epidemiological knowledge...
