Leader of the Southern Pulse Agronomy project Dr Jason Brand says growers need to get the fundamentals for their faba beans right up front, such as row spacing, plant density and pest and disease management, to avoid any issues in the canopy later in the season... Growers wanting to avoid issues with canopy management in faba bean crops later this season should first get fundamental measures such as row spacing, plant density, inoculation and pest and disease management right earlier in the season... Dr Brand has been looking at novel ways of reducing the problem in the HRZ, including chemical and mechanical treatments, but says the key message for growers was still to focus on getting the important things right early in the growing season...

RD&E lifts lentil profile.. "Pulses love soil that has been well looked after, so when you combine well-managed soils with the genetic advances, growers are in a good position to include lentils in their systems," Dr Brand says... Yield stability is the major factor in lentils moving into these more marginal areas, Dr Brand says, with varieties being bred for boron and salt tolerance as well as disease resistance under the current Pulse Breeding Australia lentil program headed by Dr Matthew Rodda...
