The development of varieties Oscar, Dunkeld and Rainbow - names older canola growers often mention when discussing their experiences with the crop - was a major turning point for the industry in 1992 and 1993, raising the bar for yield and blackleg resistance... Led by Neil Wratten from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and Dr Phil Salisbury from the Victorian DPI, the program supported by the GRDC left a legacy of disease-resistant, high-yielding varieties that laid the foundations for a strong canola industry and more robust crop rotations... Hybrid (F1) seed produced on the female plants is a cross between the female and the male plants in the paddock...

Early work on canola focused on weed management strategies including the breeding of herbicide tolerant canola varieties such as triazine tolerant (TT) varieties which now account for an estimated 90% of canola grown in WA... Research is still being conducted to determine the effect of these viruses on the yield of canola in WA. European work has found seed yield losses of 10-15% associated with this virus disease in canola... The amount of air passed through the grain is measured in litres per second per tonne and varies depending on the particular aeration strategy...

Ron Longbottom with his on-farm moisture monitoring equipment... Despite canola offering a higher return per hectare than the field peas he usually plants, Ron has found the pulse crop improves soil fertility, resulting in subsequent cereal crops yielding considerably more per hectare and often with higher protein... In 2013 - a good year - wheat planted on pea stubble yielded 700 kilograms per hectare more than wheat planted on canola stubble. "..

[Photo (left) by Rebecca Thyer: Teesdale's Andrew Morrison is growing only GM canola this year (2009), following his successful trial last year.].. Mr Morrison says that despite just 165 millimetres of in-season rain (the 2008 total of 331mm was down from the farm's 475mm average), the GM hybrid canola averaged 1.2 tonnes/ha, which was 38 per cent more than the TT canola at 0.86t/ha... Mr Morrison says the extra costs involved in using GM varieties are comparable to using TT canola, when the extra chemicals needed for conventional varieties are taken into account. "..

Researchers anticipate an increase in resistanace to Group B 'imi' herbicdies (e.g. Intervix in annual tyegrass and brome grass in cropping areas as the number of different Clearfield (insert registration symbol) or imi tolerant crop options grows... For tillage situations, 1.6L/ha of Avadex Xtra and 1.5L/ha of trifluralin are commonly used in canola, dependent on soil type (note these rates are too high for cereals)... the sole reason i am using the long fallow followed byrr canola is weed control...

The availability of GM canola has prompted BCG (formerly the Birchip Cropping Group) to examine weed and herbicide-management options associated with different canola systems to support decision-making among growers in Victoria and NSW... To date, the study has found that while adoption of RR canola levelled off when conditions switched from dry to wet, the glyphosate-resistance trait can boost weed management options across an entire rotation system... Mr Hausler identified benefits associated with RR canola in his IWM system, including: excellent weed control in dry and wet conditions, including annual ryegrass, Indian hedge mustard and white ironweed; profitability; ability to rest Group A herbicides in the RR canola as well as in subsequent cereal crops; a saving of $30 to $40/ha in herbicides in subsequent cereal crops due to clean paddocks; and better yields than TT canola and similar to Clearfield varieties...

Despite canola offering a higher return per hectare than the field peas he usually plants, Ron has found the pulse crop improves soil fertility, resulting in subsequent cereal crops yielding considerably more per hectare and often with higher protein... Alan Meldrum, from Pulse Australia, WA, says the increase in canola plantings is mostly due to profitability - up to $150/ha more than field peas - and easier market access... "Field peas are marketed on a spot price, there are fewer buyers available and payment guarantees are needed," he says...
