As we improved the fencing we were able to manipulate and control the grazing, using mobs of between 3,000-12,000 goats in paddocks that ranged in size from 1200-4000 hectares keeping them there while they were browsing on the thick woody plants and moving them out when they started to graze the ground cover... When their movements are constrained by fencing, goats utilise their capacity to consume a wide spectrum of the vegetation on offer and unless adequate and effective rest from grazing is provided, land degradation will occur as illustrated in Figure 7...

A lack of national fertiliser-use data is hampering crop predictions and has the potential to cost growers millions of dollars in lost income when the grain-handling system is 'caught out', says grain supply dynamics specialist Dr David Stephens... Dr Stephens says there has been no regional-scale fertiliser-use pattern established on a national level for 15 years - the last time this information was included was in an Australian Bureau of Statistics agricultural census... Dr Stephens, who works with the Australian Export Grains Innovation Centre, says nitrogen fertiliser is the second most important driver of crop production across Australia behind rainfall: "But the lack of nutrient data, once determined by an annual census, severely affects national and shire crop yield forecasts."..

The methods, once developed, will make a very great improvement in the speed of development of new varieties and the value of the varieties to growers... Using advanced biotech and rigorous evaluation we can reduce the release time for cultivars to 5-7 years for wheat and 7-8 for barley... Unstable air is not likely to lead to high off target spray drift concentrations measured at ground level...
