New tests to measure soil health are being developed to help with planning and managing cropping programs... As chair of the GRDC research sub-program for varieties, member of the pulses and oilseed subcommittee and as a board member for the Molecular Plant Breeding Cooperative Research Centre, Jeff was keen to ensure plant breeders had the resources and support to develop new varieties that met future agronomic and market demands... GRDC board member David Shannon, who farms at Kapunda, SA, says Jeff was a likeable, intelligent and quietly spoken man who had a clear understanding of grains industry issues: "He was a true gentleman and was prepared to speak out on behalf of others when necessary," David says...

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...

Grower-driven farming systems groups in the southern cropping region are making headway on understanding and addressing the issues encountered by growers when retaining stubbles from one year to the next... The initiative involves farming systems groups in Victoria, South Australia, southern and central New South Wales and Tasmania collaborating with research organisations and agribusiness to explore and address issues for growers that impact the profitability of cropping systems with stubble, including pests, diseases, weeds, nutrition and the physical aspects of sowing and establishing crops in heavy residues... Andrew Rice, GRDC Manager Regional Grower Services - South, says the progress to date has been encouraging and that the farming systems groups involved are well on the way to developing regional guidelines and recommendations that growers can implement on-farm to help them in their endeavours to consistently retain stubbles...
