" Facilitating increased on-farm adoption of broadleaf species in crop sequences to improve grain production and profitability.. The area sown to pulse legume crops or canola has dramatically declined in the past 8-10 years, and despite 65-70% of southern grain region still growing pastures in rotation with crops, many of these pastures tend to have low legume contents and provide little nitrogen benefit to following crops... There are many good reasons why growers have reduced the frequency of use of broadleaf species in recent years related to late starts to the growing season, drought and risk aversion...

KEY MESSAGES Grazing of cereal and canola crops in winter reduced grain yield by between 8 and 21% at seven of eleven sites... Grain yield was unaffected by grazing at four of eleven sites... KEY MESSAGES Grazing of both cereal and canola crops in winter did not significantly reduce grain yield and quality in five out of seven on-farm trials in 2011 Grazing of both cereal and canola crops in winter provided between 157 and 509 DSE grazing days per hectare of grazing value..

The result confirms the conclusions of another experiment comparing crops growing after pastures conducted in a wetter sequence of seasons... The expectation is based on results showing that pastures containing the perennial grasses phalaris and cocksfoot had higher yields than those based on lucerne... If pastures containing perennial pastures are more widely adopted, the expected economic benefit will be a yield advantage of about 10% over lucerne-dominant pastures...

Optimising water use efficiency in western NSW.. The relative merit of different rotation crops can also be assessed by looking at the amount of water they extract from the soil profile... Research has shown that canola is better able to extract phosphorus (P) from soil than wheat (Bolland and Brennan 2008) meaning that maximum yield of canola can be achieved with lower P application than is required for wheat...

Break crops could hold key to tap soil phosphorus reserves.. University of Adelaide research, funded by the GRDC, on break crops has demonstrated positive effects on phosphorus uptake and yield in subsequent wheat crops... Wheat following a break crop has a greater P uptake and higher yield than continuous wheat rotations...

Nematode-starving linseed ticks all the boxes.. The Jacksons started growing linseed three years ago after attending a GRDC Research Update at Goondiwindi, Queensland, where they learned the crop was resistant to Pratylenchus thornei and P. neglectus , which damage other plants' roots and reduce yield... Before growing linseed, the Jacksons ran a wheat/barley/canola rotation, but PreDicta B tests confirmed there were 17,000 P. thornei per kilogram in their black self-mulching clay soils after the cereal phase...

Soils naturally contain beneficial fungi that help a crop access nutrients like phosphorus and zinc... Many that are associated with crops also form structures called vesicles in the roots and are called vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM)... VAM inoculum builds up during cropping but not all crops produce equal quantities of inoculum...
