Pea plantings drop as canola finds favour.. Canola is booming in Western Australia as growers are attracted to the crop's economics; the trick now is to find the right balance to maintain the agronomic benefits of pulses... Despite canola offering a higher return per hectare and more marketing and weed-control options, Mr Meldrum and growers such as Ron Longbottom are quick to point out that field peas still have a crucial role to play in a balanced cropping regime...

PestFacts South Australia and Western Victoria co-ordinators say that cultural practices have a significant impact on insect populations in field crops and a number of basic steps over the summer and pre-sowing period can help increase the chances of a successful start next season... Summer weeds provide a 'green bridge' for pests such as aphids, mites, snails and diamondback moth to survive on over the hot summer months," said Mr Perry, whose work is supported by growers and the Australian Government through the Grains Research and Development Corporation's (GRDC) investment in the National Invertebrate Pest.. Mr Perry recommends that growers identify paddocks at higher risk of pest pressure and carefully monitor them in the autumn prior to sowing susceptible crops...

RLN cause substantial yield losses, particularly in wheat, but they reproduce on numerous summer and winter crops... The resistance experiments also demonstrated the large range of susceptibility within crops, even for barley, providing an additional benefit from this work... We conducted a targeted survey of nine farms in the northern grain region to gain knowledge about the presence of the stunt nematode and zoosporic fungi such as Olpidium (zoosporic fungi are characterised by the production of spores called zoospores which have flagella and are motile in water)...

Recent research has identified that northern grain-growing soils are capable of suppressing root-lesion nematodes, especially in the top layer (0-15 cm) of soil, and this capacity can be enhanced by increasing the biological activity of that soil, mainly through carbon inputs and minimising soil disturbance... Results from 600 samples tested in 2010-13 showed that 50% of paddocks had populations above 2 nemotodes/g soil... A recent survey in Central Queensland found that 28% of paddocks had RLN, with 26% of those paddocks containing P. thornei...

In Australia's northern grains region, FHB is considered one of the top five most damaging wheat diseases, causing an average $9 million in lost production every year... Although the disease does not occur often in Australia, growers are advised to be aware of its potential and to stay informed... Dr Stephen Neate, from the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), leads research on FHB in Queensland and says the disease can cause significant yield loss, quality reductions and downgrading of grain...
