GRDC Western Panel deputy chair Dr Mike Ewing says the GRDC recognises the importance of generating this information for lower-rainfall areas... "There is growing interest in expanding oat production in these lower-rainfall areas to diversify rotations and help manage seasonal rainfall variation, declining grain prices, higher input costs, frost risk in susceptible paddocks and increasing weed burdens," he says... Dr Malik says the rates will be tested in combination with nitrogen application in the eastern wheatbelt trials this year...

The program of research developed around this position focuses on novel approaches to grain crop improvement in water-limited environments... It emphasises the design and testing of crop production systems that optimise combinations of genetic attributes (G) and agronomic management (M) in variable water-limited environments (E) using a systems analysis and modelling approach... The ways genes, environments and management systems interact to affect crop productivity has been captured in mathematical algorithms that turn computers into virtual paddocks, allowing simulated field trials to improve risk-management options and resource-use efficiency < Keep browsing..

Learn from industry leaders at WA WeedSmart Week.. Grain growers from across Australia are invited to participate in WA WeedSmart Week from August 8 to 12, when they can learn about herbicide resistance and agronomic management from leading researchers and growers in the field... Other topics include spray small weeds; plan of action to avert glyphosate resistance - test; stop weed set - strategic planning; iHSD - a glimpse of the future; grazing chaff dumps; and capture weed seeds at harvest...

One or more species of RLN (Root Lesion Nematode, Pratylenchus spp.) occur in at least 60% of WA cropping paddocks... The principal outputs of this project will be knowledge of wheat varieties which are more resistant to RLN (i.e. limit the multiplication of RLN under a crop) & more tolerant to RLN (i.e. yield loss incurred in a variety due to RLN is minimised)... RLN research in WA will continue to focus on management, principally through rotational recommendations for the deployment of cereal cultivars (& other host crops) with a level of resistance to each RLN that will benefit subsequent crop yields...

tolerate grazing and can recover to produce a grain or hay crop; provide forage to fill the winter feed gap in the livestock cycle; and facilitate grazing as a canopy management tool... Dual-purpose crops are increasingly being used in the high rainfall zones (HRZs) of south-eastern Australia to provide additional winter forage, and there is growing interest in sowing dual-purpose varieties in the drier regions of southern and western Australia... a late application of nitrogen can help to optimise grain yields...
