" E0017116: Microbial T-RFLP Screening as a Solution for Premature Yeast Flocculation (PYF) Assurance for Malt and Malting Barley Exports.. Premature Yeast Flocculation (PYF) is an intermittent but substantial problem for effected brewers causing substantial losses when PYF malt is inadvertently used... International brewers are becoming increasingly aware and concerned about PYF and this concern is spreading to our major market, China...

1. Management of crown rot It is important that reliable estimates of yield losses in barley in Victoria caused by both F. pseudograminearum and Fusarium culmorum are determined... Crown rot research has shown that average annual losses of 4.5% in paddocks with crown rot symptoms can be reduced following adoption of management strategies evaluated within this project... Resistance to bacterial blight In this project, field peas were shown to vary in their response to bacterial blight caused byPss the inheritance of this variation and its nature (i.e. resistance or tolerance to infection) needs to be determined if breeders are to make continuing progress in developing field pea varieties with resistance to this disease...

Luke recognised as grains industry rising star.. Mr Minogue said the Emerging Leader Award, voted on by the GRDC Regional Panels, recognised the efforts and commitment of a chosen researcher, adviser, grower or other industry participant... "His research has largely looked to increase the grain production and profitability for growers and reduce the risks associated with non-cereal crop production," said Mr Minogue, of Barmedman (NSW)...

In particular the dryland root rot, commonly known as Crown Rot (Fusarium spp), and the root lesion nematodes (Pratylenchus thornei and P. neglectus) are economically important constraints in Australia and many developing countries in which CIMMYT has a mandate to work on rainfed wheat production systems (Chakraborty et al., 2006; Nicol & Rivoal, 2008).CIMMYT has worked on SBPs for almost 10 years..... New disease highlights unceasing challenge.. A new wheat disease identified in Brazil in 1985 was initially considered "something of an oddity" but is now seen as a potential time bomb, with sporadic outbreaks affecting successively larger areas in South America...

Non-herbicide weed control strategies are being employed over large areas of the Western Australian grainbelt at harvest time to reduce the weed seed burden and manage resistant weeds... Techniques including windrow burning, chaff carts and the Harrington Seed Destructor drive down the weed seed 'bank' to very low numbers, making weed control easier, even in the face of herbicide resistance...

Higher prices for both fertiliser and grain mean that fertiliser needs to be better targeted and used more efficiently because of the increased risks of losses both at the over- and under-fertilising ends of the spectrum... The key requirements for making better fertiliser recommendations are realistic estimates of potential yield (A), knowledge of the maximum yield response to fertiliser input for a give nutrient status of the soil (B) and estimates of nutrient use efficiency or the curvature of the response curve (C)... Yield response of ryegrass to applied N is considered to be linear between applications of 0 3 00 kg N ha -1(Whitehead 1995), it was appropriate to consider the linear response to N applied in the biosolids and urea...
