The five-day conference in Sydney last year was attended by more than 600 delegates from every wheat-producing region in the world - both developed and developing - representing regional, national and international organisations... Conference chair Professor Peter Sharp, from the University of Sydney's Plant Breeding Institute, described in his opening address how wheat continued to underpin food security in a world where climate, pests and pathogens were changing... He noted that growers were seeking robust, higher-yielding varieties adapted to climatic, biotic and abiotic stresses; millers and manufacturers of food and beverage products required consistently high-quality raw materials to ensure the integrity of their products; and consumers of wheat products were increasingly discerning...

03 5441 6176 03 5444 4299 admin@orm.com.au CAUTION: RESEARCH ON UNREGISTERED PESTICIDE USE Any research with unregistered pesticides or of unregistered products reported in this document does not constitute a recommendation for that particular use by the authors, the authors' organisations or the management committee... In summary, it could be argued that none of the currently available preemergence herbicides have the required stability in efficacy to become viable alternatives to postemergence group A or imidazolinone herbicides... Overall, 2012 seasonal conditions tended to favour early and mid flowering and maturing varieties...

Viability of unmanned continuous cropping and use of machinery to address labour constraints.. I believe that using GM varieties with non-selective chemical traits, growers would be able to have continuous cropping as an achievable option, instead of being pressured into a pasture phase, hay production or buying expensive equipment for trash collection when harvesting or shielded sprayers and wider sowing rows... Conclusion I believe Australia has a great future in growing wheat and continues to need a rotation of some description (e.g. crops or pasture phase) to maximise wheat quality and yields...

Other impacts and conflicts of interest may have a long term effect on the success of implementing genomics and I will address these issues the dairy industry and policy makers will need to consider if it is to be successful... The Australian dairy industry has seen vast genetic improvements over the last 70 years with the introduction of Artificial Insemination (AI), herd testing, semen processing, sire proofing, introduction of breeding values for traits and now the evolution of genomic technology... It is imperative that any data collected from herd recording figures, workability data or confirmation evaluation, needs to follow a clear and definite path to the final users in order for service providers to evaluate in an appropriate and prompt manner delivering accurate and valuable information to the farming industry to allow farmers to make more informed decisions to drive their business into the future...
