NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) staff involved in the National Soybean Breeding Program have launched a push to encourage more farmers to grow soybeans as a food crop for people... Mostly grown in Australia as a "break" crop, using no-till cultivation, soybeans have been used to recycle nitrogen and improve sustainability of a farmer"s principal crop... Soybeans are grown in Australia in three farming systems - dominated by sugarcane, perennial pasture and rice...

Where Palmer amaranth had developed resistance to glyphosate, paddocks had to be abandoned and in some instances people had lost their farms, Dr Norsworthy said... Many growers also delayed the application of glyphosate to kill as many weeds as possible with a single application... Like all researchers, Dr Norsworthy points to the near total reliance placed on glyphosate: "Three to four years ago 98 per cent of our cotton, soybean and corn acreage was Roundup Ready ...

Summer soybeans add flexible line of profit.. NSW mixed farmers Ken and Wendy Brain and their daughter Amy (left), in their 2012 soybean crop, have high hopes for their 2013 crop of soybeans at Coleambally on the back of tighter worldwide supplies... Ken says the 700m irrigation bays can be watered more efficiently within the ideal timeframe of seven hours, while the installation of pipes and risers has reduced evaporation losses and allowed them to pick up an extra 10ha of land for crops...

Stem fly can exist in a crop almost undetected and cause sizeable crop losses if not identified early... At the permitted 800mL/ha rate, dimethoate also kills natural predators of stem fly, resulting in a flare-up of other pests such as silverleaf whitefly, mites and Helicoverpa, Mr Brier says... Mr Brier says the "go soft early" IPM strategy should be used to conserve parasites of stem fly by avoiding non-selective 'hard' pesticides for as long as possible, especially synthetic pyrethroids (for example deltamethrin), organophosphates (for example dimethoate) and carbamates (for example methomyl and thiodicarb)...

You intend using a residual protectant to treat infested grain - pyrimiphos-methyl, fenitrothion and chlorpyrifos-methyl are ineffective against lesser grain borer, and pyrimiphos-methyl and fenitrothion are generally ineffective against sawtoothed grain beetle... you intend using dichlorvos to treat infested grain - if lesser grain borer is present you need to apply the higher dose rate...
