Western Australian growers will benefit from new research which will help produce wheat varieties containing higher levels of protein and extra 'functionality', without requiring additional fertiliser... Growers who produce wheat with higher protein levels receive a premium for achieving harder wheat grades, used to make products such as yellow alkaline noodles, pan bread, flat bread and instant noodles... "The extra gluten protein gene from Italy will be crossed into Australian bread wheat varieties so that Australian wheat cultivars contain a total of six gluten protein units - leading to a higher percentage of functional protein in wheat end products made from Australian wheat."..

The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is calling on all growers to ensure they are following best practice when it comes to spraying crops to reduce the risk of spray drift... Any herbicide has the potential to drift, but by maximising the amount reaching the target, growers can minimise any herbicide or pesticide reaching off-target areas, improving effectiveness and reducing any potential damage to off-target crops or areas... The GRDC suggests growers operate within the weather guidelines and adopt the following practices to reduce spray drift risk...

After four years and the involvement of 20,000 primary producers across seven growing regions, Grain & Graze 2 has overseen some significant changes to farming practices.. Mixed-farm growers account for the majority of Australia's broadacre landholders and each year face a delicate balancing act; weighing up the feeding of livestock with maximising crop yields, while maintaining adequate ground-cover levels to minimise erosion... Targets for the strategic use of livestock to graze weeds for integrated weed management were met both nationally and in all regions, reducing the pressure on chemical control...
