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... Enzyme technologies There is renewed interest in using enzymes in primary and secondary processing of grains, as an alternative to solvents, some of which (e.g. hexane) are becoming almost prohibitively expensive... Unstable air is not likely to lead to high off target spray drift concentrations measured at ground level...

Look west for directions in combating herbicide resistance.. As the shift to more intensive cropping systems gains momentum and herbicide use increases, authorities say it could only be a matter of time before resistance levels in southern cropping states reach those of Western Australia where growers have been battling the nation's highest incidence of herbicide resistance... The publication includes information of innovations - such as the GRDC-funded Harrington Seed Destructor (HSD) which can remove up to 95 per cent of weed seed in the harvested chaff fraction - which are set to have a significant impact on reducing the effect of weeds and herbicide resistance in Australian cropping systems...

The travel and associated study undertaken as a result of the scholarship had two core themes and the findings, conclusions and recommendations from this study are presented in this report... Australian farmers have been very innovative over the last 30 years and are amongst the most efficient in the world but I now believe this can-not continue as it has as we are losing too much human capital from food production... There is great interest among growers and merchants that I met about the market demand for true organic hops as compared to Northern Hemisphere organic hops which still get a lot of "organic "chemical applications such as copper...

But I believe my mind was sufficiently open to face the reality of what I was to investigate and the principle that we could adapt if there is the need to change Distance usually prevents Australian producers involved in the Livestock export trade a full appreciation of all fundamentals steering the future direction of their industry and individual businesses... There is also a demand for the direct purchase of live animals particularly in the Muslim festivals... The factors strongly indicate there will always be a demand for the supply of live animals to the many nations without the capacity to produce livestock themselves...

The aim of my study scholarship is to explore the cold storage of bee hives as a tool for combating pests and diseases within the Australian apiary industry... Figure 5 & 6: Dish washing cloth used to treat hives with Varroa mites Source: Ben Hooper This is common practice to see a synthetic chemical administered to such a crude way... The most significant difference in replicating this process in Australia is that we would have to use cooling systems to achieve the constant temperature of 4 oc...

The top minds in crown rot research from around the world gathered in Narrabri, NSW recently to nut out on solutions for controlling the costly disease... Crown rot is a leading cause of yield loss in the grains region from Dubbo, NSW to southern Queensland and GRDC northern panel chair, James Clark welcomes the concerted focus... The Murray/Brennan report, The Current and Potential Costs from Diseases of Wheat in Australia, commissioned by GRDC, shows controlling crown rot through best management practices benefits the Australian grain industry to the tune of $355 million each year...

Leading the world in feeding the world: a look into the future for Australian grain "Research and development is critical for Australian growers to keep ahead of declining terms of trade by continuing to improve on farm productivity and profitability.".. Mr Harvey will articulate his vision for the Australian grains industry during the 'Leading the World in Feeding the World' roadshow presentations to be held in Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane. ".. In the short term, it is critical GRDC delivers value so that Australian growers know and implement the R&D successes of the past 20 years," Mr Harvey said. "..

The GRDC is collaborating with CSIRO and Nuseed to develop canola varieties that express long-chain (LC) omega-3 oils that are currently sourced mainly from algae-eating ocean fish... Nuseed will commercialise the technology, which is expected to deliver from terrestrial crops these highly valuable oils that are said to be important in human physiology... The extra enzymes allow canola's existing short forms of omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA) to be extended into the long-chain varieties - eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - that are normally sourced, via fish, from marine plants...
