After early work showed success on soil types suitable for pulses, the project is exploring pulse production and profit on a wider range of soils... Mr Moodie says pulses were being put to the test in northern Victoria and the SA Mallee, which have similar average annual rainfalls (about 260 millimetres) and average growing-season rainfall (GSR) of about 170mm... Even if we use the five-year average price - which is far less than the actual 2015 price - lentils came through profitably," he says...

Growers throughout the southern cropping region are being advised to expect a heightened frost risk this season due to the developing El Ni o... Dr Hayman, who is involved in GRDC-funded frost research projects, says while the risk of frost is expected to increase this year, the exact timing and frequency cannot be predicted... The Australian IYP Committee, established in 2014, has been making plans and directing activities to raise Australia's profile as a producer of quality pulses while increasing the domestic consumption of pulses to meet the Grains & Legumes Nutrition Council's recommendation for all Australians to eat legumes at least two to three times a week (see Lights, cameras, pulses, action )...
