While a cereal crop can shade broadleaf weeds, the weeds will still move their leaves to get the maximum benefit from any sunlight reaching them through the crop canopy... Crops sown in an east-west orientation are less successful in suppressing the growth of broadleaf weeds compared with grass weeds... Crop orientation will have a greater impact on farms in southern Australia, compared to northern Australia...

The success of collecting Rhizobium can only be measured after the cultures are used to inoculate plants growing in nursery rows in Australia... The project has delivered new germplasm for pasture plant improvement in southern Australia by undertaking the collection of seed - and their Rhizobium where appropriate - of priority Trifolium species and other important pasture legumes in short season regions of the Mediterranean basin... Initial results show early flowering plants of Biserrula pelecinus collected from the Canary Islands, Trifolium species and Biserrula pelecinus ssp Leiocarpa collected from Eritrea, B. pelecinus and Ornithopus roseus collected from Morocco and Trifolium clypeatum (helmet clover) and Trifolium glanduliferum collected in Lebanon...

Working in CSIRO's Food Futures Flagship, Mr Wang has adapted CT scanning methods (computerised x-ray micro-tomography) normally used to determine the porosity and permeability of rocks in oil exploration research to better understand how dough structure affects bread quality... Using the x-ray technique, Mr Wang has generated three-dimensional maps of the pore structure, or air spaces, inside dough and bread made from flour with low and high protein... "I found that the gold-standard breads made from commercial bread flour used in South-East Asia had a high pore space, or porosity, with 99.9 per cent of pores forming one big interconnecting pore space and a tiny proportion existing as closed pores within the solid bread," Mr Wang says...
