Fusarium wilt raises its head in mungbean crops.. Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) plant pathologist Lisa Kelly said the testing of affected plants would help researchers identify the strain of Fusarium wilt responsible for the infections which is critical for the effective on-going management of the disease... "Two Fusarium species have consistently been isolated from affected plants - F. oxysporum and F. solani - and both species have been associated with the disease in mungbean and other bean or Vigna species outside of Australia...

The revegetation of farmland to improve the biodiversity of the cropping landscape, and ultimately lift the grainbelt's long-term sustainability, is shifting up a gear through a three-year study into the real needs of threatened flora and fauna species... By responding to the needs of these 'focal species' it not only allows a more strategic approach to revegetation, but hopefully creates an ecological umbrella under which the needs of many other species are also covered... Armed with the information, a new project - a joint Land and Water Australia/ CSIRO initiative - is moving beyond a single focal species like the small woodland birds, to identifying the requirements of a range of fauna, such as insects and reptiles; to see at what levels of revegetation a more complex and more viable web of life begins to interlink...

The entire chickpea genome has just been sequenced, providing chickpea breeders with a powerful tool for lifting the performance of this increasingly important crop - both in Australia and internationally... The genome sequencing project was designed especially to help breeders improve cultivated varieties by sampling the whole gene pool - elite varieties, landraces and wild species... " the study will provide access to 'good genes' to speed up breeding, and to genomic regions that will bring genetic diversity back from landraces or wild species into breeding lines...

More information: Australian Glyphosate Sustainability Working Group, www.glyphosateresistance.org.au - By Sharon Watt.. The GRDC is urging growers to be on the lookout for any weeds that should be controlled by glyphosate but which survive... "This is a huge concern to Australian grain growers because this highly competitive weed has been becoming a major problem in reduced-tillage farming," says Associate Professor Chris Preston, chair of the Australian Glyphosate Sustainability Working Group and leader of the University of Adelaide team that confirmed the result...

The aim of the research is to identify strategies that may enhance the survival of beneficial invertebrate species, as well as to increase the awareness of the importance of beneficial species and IPM strategies in the grains industry... Beneficial species collected included several species of wasp (both parasitic and predatory), spiders, predatory beetles, bugs and mites, lacewings and mantids... The greatest number of beneficial species were present in cereal crops during November (61), while only 8 beneficial species were found in canola crops during July...

Dual-purpose cereal crops are an integral part of the mixed farming system in New South Wales... Whilst the recent industry focused grazing programs has been on optimising grazing management, only limited work has been undertaken on species and cultivar differences and understanding what these differences have on DM and livestock performances in mixed farming systems... Studies by NSW DPI have shown that selecting the right species and cultivar can significantly increase overall production of grazing crops in a mixed farming system, with differences between species potentially adding 750kg DM/ha and between cultivar within species choice 780kg DM/ha...
