New report gives insights into grain farm practices.. The report's co-author and GRDC Farm Practices Project Manager, Jan Edwards, says that in comparing the two sets of data, the percentage of farm income flowing from winter cereals has increased in most parts of Australia, (except for central Queensland and parts of Western Australia) and it remains at 66 to 67 per cent of farm income nationally... Ms Edwards said tillage practices had shown some changes since the previous survey, with the percentage of the crop planted using zero or no-tillage remaining high at more than 60 per cent of the hectares nationally, although the percentage has fallen in parts of SA, Victoria and NSW...

Opportunities exist for grain growers in the southern cropping region to more effectively manage weeds in retained stubble systems, according to new research conducted by the CSIRO and funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... "The data shows very large differences between regions for practices like harvest weed seed control, crop topping and double knockdown which reflects past differences in the levels of herbicide resistance, but we're now seeing resistance issues becoming much more important in all cropping regions," Dr Llewellyn said...

Crop into the future with GRDC Updates.. The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) will raise the bar on crop productivity next month when some of Australia's leading grains researchers visit Moree and Coonamble for the annual GRDC Grain Research Updates to equip growers with practical management advice in areas such as soil nutrition, weed control and grain storage... With crop profitability largely hinging on yield, addressing productivity constraints can make a significant difference to business' bottom lines as well as the long-term sustainability of the farming system...
