New report gives insights into grain farm practices.. The report's co-author and GRDC Farm Practices Project Manager, Jan Edwards, says that in comparing the two sets of data, the percentage of farm income flowing from winter cereals has increased in most parts of Australia, (except for central Queensland and parts of Western Australia) and it remains at 66 to 67 per cent of farm income nationally... Ms Edwards said tillage practices had shown some changes since the previous survey, with the percentage of the crop planted using zero or no-tillage remaining high at more than 60 per cent of the hectares nationally, although the percentage has fallen in parts of SA, Victoria and NSW...

To minimise losses, a number of growers - many of whom have been practicing no-till or zero-till farming for 20 years - have been out cultivating to bring up clay clods and minimise topsoil losses... Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) soil and land management consultant David Woodard says growers who have undertaken "emergency tillage" have been cultivating just deep enough to bring up clods of clay to cover the furrow... Mr Woodard says there are certain types of clay to avoid if growers choose to practice clay spreading or delving on sandy soils to stop erosion...

" Grains Research Update "Getting Ready for Summer" Orion Hall Wednesday 7th Nov 2001.. Farming systems which minimise the movement of soil and water will also minimise the loss of nutrients and pesticides... In summary, Mike has found a strategy to help him interpret his yield maps - and is now taking the same approach to other paddocks to maximise fertiliser savings...

International grain traders are watching markets to see what impact there will be from the world's third-largest exporter, Ukraine, announcing an eight-million-tonne drop in production after freezing temperatures destroyed large swathes of its winter crops... Then more than a third of the country's planted crop was hit by the big freeze in February that also hit much of Europe... Mr Eudall also noted that in anticipation of crops taking a weather hit, Ukraine had positioned itself to supply feedgrain markets, opening the door to Russia becoming a major supplier of quality grain to the Middle East and Asia...

Securing winter seed supplies will be foremost on the minds of those northern growers lucky enough to receive soaking autumn rain... Put simply, "know your paddock", "know your varieties" and sow ... Another important consideration for growers is to ensure that the variety selected has the correct maturity to correspond with planting time to minimize the risk of crop damage from frost...
