Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, the DAFWA indices suggest that a more optimistic approach to decision-making is recommended in 2006 and confidence in this assessment would be enhanced if a La Ni a develops... The needs analysis has enabled an assessment of the distribution of farmers along the pathway from initial awareness through to final adoption of CRM information and tools being offered by various organisations...

Applying P at depth (15 to 20cm deep on 50cm bands) can improve yields over a number of cropping seasons (if other nutrients are not limiting)... Limited P is now constraining yields in parts of the northern grains region, particularly in the vertosols (black and grey cracking clays)... The test needs to be done only every four to six years, and is most important in the subsoil layers...

Maximise yield with protein knowledge.. Protein testing grain sorghum at harvest should be routine practice if growers want to maximise the profitability of their crops... According to the Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), grain sorghum protein levels (at 13.5 percent moisture) of less than 9pc indicates acute nitrogen deficiency, 9-10pc indicates marginal nitrogen deficiency while levels above 10pc suggest that nitrogen is adequate and not adversely impacting yield...

GRDC GrowNotes show the way for maize.. " the outcomes have traditionally been communicated to industry via media and annual GRDC events like the GRDC Updates for Growers and Advisors," says Mr Clark... Local, timely information "Feedback indicates that growers want more specific information, tailored to their area, in a format they can easily access," says GRDC's Regional Grower Services Manager for the northern region, Sharon O'Keeffe...

Producers can increase net returns in dual-purpose crops by up to $500 a hectare and achieve other benefits including weed control through careful grazing management... While producers must obviously weigh up the economics of using dual-purpose crops for their forage or grain value, trial work funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and undertaken by CSIRO Agriculture has identified ways of optimising grain yield and grazing potential... "If producers are grazing beyond stem elongation, they should manage stock to protect developing reproductive structures and leave more residual biomass to avoid a yield penalty," Dr Sprague said...

" Economics of closing the yield gap in the Northern Grains Region.. A third measure to help growers make decisions to improve yield will be benchmarks for water productivity, otherwise known as water use efficiency, for different soils and scenarios for each part of the Northern Region... Workshops will involve growers and advisers in discussion of yield targets and ways of closing the yield gaps, along with the economics of improvements and putting it all together to make the farm and region more profitable and productive...
