Southern Farming Systems projects coordinator Annieka Paridaen at a trial of Hyola 971 CL that was sown on 14 November 2012 and grazed in summer and autumn 2013... Winter canola has been successfully sown in spring, grazed over summer and harvested for grain in 2012 and 2013.. With the release of new varieties such as CB@" Taurus and Hyola 971 CL, an opportunity now exists to sow canola in spring and graze the crop in summer and autumn with little impact on subsequent grain yield...

Spring-sown canola widens HRZ options.. Winchelsea grower Lachie Wilson and his Angus bulls size up spring-sown canola as a grain-and-graze option in Victoria's high-rainfall zone... Establishing canola in spring instead of autumn, and hard grazing the crop from December to April, has further allowed the Wilsons to save on slug baiting, Lachie says...

Everything was going against the field peas sown on the Eckermann family"s southern NSW property last year... [Photo (left) by Kellie Penfold: Nick and Kym Eckermann: persistence rewarded with a crop that defied the conditions.] "We had one crop of Parafield in the late 1990s which went 2.5t/ha," says Nick Eckermann, who runs the 3000ha property "Hill View", at Yenda north of Griffith, with his parents Kym and Judy and wife Trisha... The Eckermanns, who also run 900 ewes for prime lamb production, always include field peas in their rotation for weed control and to improve the soil...

Agronomy: the key to productive pastures that can sustain profitable grain production in Queensland.. The benefits from pastures are directly related to their productivity; poor pastures will limit beef production, and will do little to improve the soil and future crop production.. The paper provides a series of insights into the need to consider pasture phases in much of our cropping lands, the contributions these pastures can make; and the need for better agronomy to maximise these contributions and make them last...

KEYMESSAGES Inoculating pasture legumes must be an ongoing process... The efficiencies of the products were continually evaluated for use in Western Australian agriculture by research at the Centre for Rhizobium Studies... Measurements included the percentage of plants nodulated, the amount of nodules on each plant and the strain of bacteria in each nodule, which was identified by fingerprint profiling using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) as described in Yates (2005)...

Charlie Clemson likes to have his sowing equipment organised and well maintained so he is ready to sow Bolac wheat by 10 April on his family's property south of Ardlethan in southern New South Wales... "The Bolac wheat sown at the Clemsons' farm on 4 April was probably exposed to enough day length to speed its development, and it had started flowering on 5 August, a good month before the optimal period in that environment," Dr Hunt says... The Clemsons' 2013 yield results have supported CSIRO, FarmLink and NSW Department of Primary Industries experiments showing the yield advantages of slow-maturing wheats sown early...
