Dormancy and water sensitivity are undesirable post-harvest because barley varieties with these two traits generally need months of storage for the seed to be suitable for malting... Dr Reuss and his team investigated three main options: using agricultural chemicals to break dormancy before or after storage.. After testing a total of 20 agricultural chemicals, the team found that several were so toxic that they could not be used (they killed the barley seed), and many did not effectively break dormancy...

In particular the dryland root rot, commonly known as Crown Rot (Fusarium spp), and the root lesion nematodes (Pratylenchus thornei and P. neglectus) are economically important constraints in Australia and many developing countries in which CIMMYT has a mandate to work on rainfed wheat production systems (Chakraborty et al., 2006; Nicol & Rivoal, 2008).CIMMYT has worked on SBPs for almost 10 years..... New disease highlights unceasing challenge.. A new wheat disease identified in Brazil in 1985 was initially considered "something of an oddity" but is now seen as a potential time bomb, with sporadic outbreaks affecting successively larger areas in South America...

Wind-tunnel research tests spraying rules.. Testing a new low-drift formulation in the wind tunnel has helped a US chemical company secure a five-fold reduction in the buffer zone for its product.. The tunnel lets researchers control and manipulate the factors that influence spray drift and effectiveness, such as weather, wind speed and direction, nozzle size, atmospheric stability, tank mix, boom height, boom stability and Delta T (how temperature and humidity affect evaporation)...
