Bentleg opener brings speed and control to no-till.. A University of South Australia (UniSA) engineering project is a step closer to delivering a new furrow opener design that reduces soil disturbance and increases operating speeds in no-till seeding... "We need to investigate this interaction between opener design and speed to maintain low soil disturbance, to see why some designs perform better at high speed," he says...

The objective of the national demonstration initiative is to establish a network of farms to demonstrate strategies for grain farming systems that address adaptation to climate change impacts... As a consequence: - Farmers and advisers have direct access to, and learning from, on-ground demonstration of new and existing, locally-relevant adaptations to climate change to maintain or enhance farm viability.- Rapid dissemination of meaningful and believable messages on adapting to climate change to their local communities.- Assessment of the emission implications of the demonstrated different adaptations using existing National Greenhouse Gas.. In collaboration with grower groups (including Facey, Liebe, North Mallee Farm Improvement Group and WANTFA), the Department of Agriculture and Food Western Australia (DAFWA) has planned a network of farms demonstrating climate risk management strategies across the central WA wheatbelt in 2011...

In summary VSAP is: A summary of the key reasons for the release of the new variety, including strengths and weaknesses, and how the new variety should be managed relative to current common varieties... Overall, Total N fixed was strongly linked to dry matter production and rainfall... Overall, early removal is still likely to be the best option on heavy clay soils...

The project has supported the development of farming systems that incorporate forage (lab lab) and ley (butterfly pea) legumes into grain farming systems... Growing canola is like having a fallow period as far as VAM populations in the soil are concerned... Research in the area of AWM is looking at tactics that can be implemented during the summer...

Lubeck farmer Peter Taylor (left) and Joe Boisen inspecting harvest options for a flood-damaged wheat crop... Even though some locals had started to believe poet Dorothea MacKellar was wrong, and rain would never return to the Wimmera, the entire region has suddenly flipped from being in a 13-year drought to sitting in water... For paddocks not submerged, a large flush of nitrogen is expected to have become available to this season's crops through breakdown of organic material - a process known as 'mineralisation' and potentially providing savings on fertiliser...

The optimum planting time for forage oats is from mid-March to June in southern Queensland, and early April to June in central Queensland... Late planting will hasten maturity and reduce the potential for multiple grazing... Starter fertiliser at sowing is recommended, but should be applied separate to the seed as the fertiliser can damage the seed and reduce its germination (e.g. DAP at 100 kg/ha will provide sufficient nitrogen (N) for establishment and phosphorus for the duration of the crop)...
