The paper is based on the concept that Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) systems are the future of the grains industry all cropping industries... The paper discusses some of the important production drivers in the grazing operations, being pasture improvement, crop: stock land mix and stocking rate... Using single variant analysis we can see that profit was largely influenced by yield the variation in yield was heavily influenced by how efficient the water was used rather than just the amount of rain received across all regions...

Graze and retain stubble for profit.. Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) trials in the north are answering growers' questions about stubble management in no-till and zero-till controlled traffic farming systems in southern NSW...
