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, 60-70 per cent of flour is used in traditional flat breads, 20-25 per cent of flour is used in western style breads and 5-10 per cent is used in cakes and biscuits... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil...

KEYMESSAGES Incorrect use of phosphine since the 1950s, has led to escalating resistance in stored grain insects which threatens the continued use of phosphine at the farm level... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil... When running a trial it is important to: 1...

CSIRO's Dr Richard Richards and Professor Graham Farquhar, from the Australian National University (ANU), have been awarded the UK-based Rank Prize for their development of methods that identify crops with superior water use efficiency (WUE)... The award relates to their discovery in the 1980s when they were able to correlate WUE in wheat crops to the ratio of carbon isotopes in the leaf... Today Dr Richards is a leading researcher at CSIRO Plant Industries, working on the continuing development of dual-purpose wheats for high-rainfall zones...

Thirteen developmental and commercially available seed applied fungicides were evaluated in the glasshouse and the field for their potential use in reducing SFNB severity... Four commercially available barley cultivars (Barque ,A Cowabbie, Schooner ,A VB9104) known to possess either complete, seedling or adult resistance to SFNB were evaluated in the field... In the glasshouse seedlings from the DPN (wheat), EBDSN (barley) and/or NVT (wheat and barley) lines were evaluated for reaction to yellow leaf spot (wheat) and spot and net forms of net blotch (barley)...

Dr Mehmet Cakir, Senior Research Fellow at Murdoch University, WA, will conduct and co-ordinate research evaluating Russian wheat aphid resistance in wheat and barley, thanks to a five year GRDC grant... Russian wheat aphid can destroy up to 70 per cent of a wheat crop and more than that in barley... The project will evaluate resistance, develop resistant wheat and barley varieties to biotypes of Russian wheat aphid and finally identify molecular markers for resistance so that continuous breeding for Russian wheat aphid is possible in Australia," Dr Cakir said.

Dr Mehmet Cakir, Senior Research Fellow at Murdoch University, WA, will conduct and co-ordinate research evaluating Russian wheat aphid resistance in wheat and barley, thanks to a five year GRDC grant... A significant pest in the USA, South Africa and parts of South America, Europe and Asia, it is present in all major wheat and barley growing areas of the world except Australia. ".. The project will evaluate resistance, develop resistant wheat and barley varieties to biotypes of Russian wheat aphid and finally identify molecular markers for resistance so that continuous breeding for Russian wheat aphid is possible in Australia," Dr Cakir said.

Intensive cropping to create grazing food bowl.. Rob and Veronica ran their own flock of prime lambs until about three years ago, when Rob made the decision to focus on cropping and agistment of other growers' stock: "It means I don't have my capital tied up in livestock and allows me to increase my contracting business," he says. ".. Overall, fertiliser use has increased as a result of the double cropping and also with an increased focus on higher yields from barley crops...

The best means for controlling powdery mildew is by avoiding more susceptible wheat and barley varieties... if powdery mildew is allowed to develop in crops, there is a serious risk of fungicide resistance developing as well as loss of resistance in current and future varieties... Spraying needs to be done early with full rates of fungicide...
