A new testing service is being offered to grain growers and advisers to determine the presence of insecticide resistance in green peach aphid (GPA) populations... The service is being made available through cesar with the support of the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) to assist growers in choosing the most effective product for controlling GPA... Anthony van Rooyen, of cesar, says resistance in GPA has escalated as a result of heavy reliance on insecticides...

South Australian pulse growers are being advised to closely monitor crops due to the high risk of diseases... South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) senior pulse pathologist, Dr Jenny Davidson, says prolific crop canopy development has occurred in a number of pulse crops across SA due to high rainfall and warmer than average May and June temperatures... Botrytis grey mould does not normally occur in chickpeas in SA, but if chickpea crops develop heavy canopies and conditions are suitable for Botrytis grey mould (over 18C with high humidity), then these crops will also need to be sprayed with a fungicide, according to Dr Davidson...

Dietitians taking lupins to heart.. Dietitian Dr Regina Belski has completed the first comprehensive study into the role that lupins could play in tackling chronic diet-related health issues... Addressing the Pulse Breeding Australia Inaugural Pulse Conference in Adelaide in October, Dr Belski, now based at Victoria's La Trobe University, said foods that increase satiety or that can be used as an alternative to medication to improve blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin sensitivity have the potential to be strategic weapons in the fight against heart disease...

The major grain legume grown in Australia is narrow-leafed lupins (NLL), but being a recently domesticated crop it has many agronomic limitations that have led to the dramatic fall of its use over the last few years... Our major focus is to decipher as much of the gene space sequence as possible and to use this valuable sequence information to greatly accelerate marker discovery and identification of candidate genes of interest for lupin crop improvement... Our approach has a heavy emphasis on molecular marker discovery and the development of a dense genetic map to help make the sequence information useful and lead to pre-breeding/breeding outcomes for the grains industry...

Dr Clements says the research is driven by the fact that in regions with acid soils, lupins are still the only rotation crop option: "So we have to make them as valuable as possible.".. Dr Clements says the progress made by the program in recent years has been strongly influenced by the work of molecular geneticist Dr Huaan Yang... Dr Clements says the team would like to achieve the target of 50 per cent yield increase over the next decade...
