The GRDC has teamed with Bayer CropScience and CSIRO to create a new research partnership dedicated to breaking through the yield ceiling that has been holding back wheat production globally... The GRDC and CSIRO funded the initial research and now Bayer CropScience has joined the partnership to support the next stage of development... Mathias Kremer, head of the BioScience business unit at Bayer CropScience, says the company has already been working on the development of wheat varieties with higher yield, more efficient nutrient utilisation and tolerance against drought and heat stresses, and that the CSIRO's gene development offers an exciting new approach...

Overall, wheat diseases have the potential to cause very significant costs for farmers... The estimates of potential losses assume that for each disease, it is the only one that develops... The drier seasons of the past decade (Section 3) would not favour these two diseases and is the likely cause of their reduction in importance...

Crops achieve their maximum potential yield at maturity any delay between maturity and harvest results in yield and quality losses... The greater the number of say, wild oats, in your paddock, the greater the chance of having plants which will be resistant to Group A herbicides... As ESP in soil increases, clay particles move apart and the soil disperses...

It can be expected that adoption of no-tillage or stubble retention is likely to remain low for continuous cereal production in areas where no long-term yield benefit can be demonstrated... Crops achieve their maximum potential yield at maturity any delay between maturity and harvest results in yield and quality losses... Finally growers could consider using different cultivars and sowing times to avoid having the entire crop ready for harvest at exactly the same time...

The 2014 harvest may well be remembered as the day(s) of the drones, as growers embraced this new aerial perspective.. New South Wales grower Angus McLaren, who runs a 4000-hectare grains operation with his wife Karen at Temora, bought his first drone, a DJI Phantom 2 Vision, worth $1600 with a camera, for use in his other business, real estate, but decided to test it out when the contractors arrived to take off the wheat and canola crops... But after receiving just 30 millimetres of in-crop rain across 121 hectares of barley in the 2014 winter grains season, Brad says the much-needed rain arrived at harvest, delaying their header for more than a day...

" New strategies for disease resistance to wheat stripe rust: Providing novel resistance to wheat rust disease via RNAi interference.. New strategies to control the disease are necessary because sources of genetic resistance are limiting and easily overcome... This will give insight to the mechanisms giving rise to virulence changes in the stripe rust population in Australia, allow us to identify key virulence proteins called "effectors", and to use these effectors to identify new sources of disease resistance as they can be recognised by the host immune system...

Growers can obtain independent information to help them get the best value from their wheat production by accessing the 2015 Wheat Variety Guide for Western Australia ... Produced by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) with funding from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), the publication provides advice on variety, agronomy, disease and herbicide tolerance characteristics, medium to long-term yield performance and time of flowering information... Ms Trainor said that as well as being a useful resource to guide the management of varieties grown this year, growers could use the publication to help plan variety decisions for 2016...
