Three varieties were evaluated at each site (Fitzroy , Grout and Gairdner ) with four replicates of all treatments... The pattern was common in all trials assessed to the end of September... Gilgandra Pirimor (300 g/ha) and dimethoate were applied to a population of ~36 aphids/tiller in early October, ~3-4 weeks after all other sites, when all varieties had completed head emergence...

The benefits of separating land assets from the operating farm business are outlined in a new Business Management Fact Sheet produced by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... The Fact Sheet points out that while grain-growing businesses are a combination of two key components - the operating business and the real estate (farm land) business - treating these two components separately provides effective and flexible operations for succession and retirement, investment and expansion pathways... The Fact Sheet provides information on measuring asset performance and details the benefits associated with asset separation, relating to succession and retirement, expansion of farm scale, asset protection, leveraging and third party investors...

An independent economic analysis of the GRDC's investment in no-till farming research has found that the corporation's $4 million investment has returned $141 million in benefits to the grains industry - a benefit/cost ratio of 36 to one... The no-till projects raised awareness of no-till opportunities and benefits and provided greater confidence to those willing to undertake change.".. Quantified benefits of the GRDC's investment included short-term gains from improved soil moisture retention and longer-term benefits such as improved weed and pest control and reduced soil erosion...

The system Prolonged periods of low rainfall over the past ten years in southern NSW have prompted many growers to become more proactive and adapt to the changing conditions by modifying their farming systems... No-till, stubble retained farming systems are rapidly being adopted to maximise crop water use... Despite the many benefits of this system, the efficacy of pre-emergent herbicides remains one of the major concerns for growers who have adopted this system, and remains a barrier.....

" Beneficial Microbes Program - progressing new microbial products for Australian grain production to commercialisation... Australian farmers are keen to reduce on-farm chemical inputs and replace them with biological alternatives... Research has shown that the soil biota can be manipulated for the benefit of crops through management practices, such as tillage, stubble retention/burning, crop/pasture sequencing and liming...

The aim of the project was to provide industry with research results that would enable it to clearly understand the flow of benefits from, and the beneficiaries of, its investments in herbicide use R&D and help inform priority setting by GRDC in future investment in research into the effective and efficient use of herbicides... Benefits to growers, chemical companies and consumers were estimated for eight case studies of hypothetical research projects across four categories of herbicide-use research and development (R&D)... Any possibility of private investment by chemical companies can be discounted for the types of herbicide use R&D evaluated in this study because the ex ante benefit:cost ratio that accounts for risk about R&D outcomes would be even smaller...

Enhanced efficiency fertilisers (EEFs), including slow release compounds and urease and nitrification inhibitors, show promise for improving efficiency, increasing management flexibility, and reducing N2O emissions... Enhanced efficiency fertilisers, including controlled release fertilisers and fertilisers amended with urease or nitrification inhibitors, show promise for improving nitrogen use efficiency... The main objective of the project is to assess the benefits of enhanced efficiency fertilisers, particularly nitrification inhibitors, in mitigating nitrous oxide emissions and increasing the efficiency of nitrogen fertilisers for a range of agricultural industries, including cropping (Victoria and NSW), sugarcane (Queensland) and dairy (Victoria), under different climatic conditions that are found across Australia...
