Clay and spading helps rebuild non-wetting soils.. WA growers with non-wetting soils are adding clay and using a spader for incorporation to lift the productivity of their farms.. Claying at a rate of 260 tonnes per hectare and using a rotary spader to incorporate the clay is a cost effective and profitable way of ameliorating non-wetting sands on a farm near Goomalling, according to preliminary trial results...

"The data for rainfed wheat come largely from northern America and southern Australia and show remarkable agreement," says Dr Wal Anderson of the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA), who contributed to one of the GRDC-funded surveys... [Photo (left): Dr Richard Richards: there is opportunity for a more connected approach between genetics and agronomy.] "The proportion of the yield increase that can be attributed to crop management ranges from 47 to 83 per cent worldwide, with an average of 68 per cent," he says... The global average stacks up well with the local data: "From a set of experiments conducted during the 1980s in WA using cultivars grown commercially from 1860 to 1982, the rate of genetic yield increase was estimated at 5.8 kilograms per hectare per year...

Bayer CropScience has undertaken extensive research in Australia that demonstrates how the seed treatment insecticide imidacloprid, available as Hombre (tebuconazole + imidacloprid) and Zorro (triadimenol + imidacloprid) can be used to improve the yield of wheat, barley and oats... The responses that can be seen include an increase in the growth rate or an increase in the green colour of the plants compared to the untreated plants... Since 2003, in excess of 42 research and demonstration trials have been carried out across Australia to qualify and quantify the benefits that Hombre and Zorro can offer in the production of cereals...

Lupin is the most important grain legume in Australia for acid, well drained, light textured soils in southern Australia... Prices received for lupins over the past 10 years has averaged only $250/tonne... Efforts to both increase the price in world commodity markets as well as increasing grain yield in lupins are needed to enhance the appeal of lupins as a profitable and sustainable crop option in farming systems...

The Bairnsdale district in East Gippsland, Victoria, is the latest non-traditional cropping district to find cereals can be grown successfully as knowledge and experience builds in the high-rainfall zone.. Trevor Caithness has defied the sceptics who question whether Victoria's East Gippsland is the place for broadacre cereal cropping... Trevor and Carryn Caithness, with their son Toby, have about 1540 hectares of sandy loam over clay dryland country sown to wheat, canola, barley, faba beans, forage crops and permanent pasture...
