new pulse variety

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Pulse Breeding Australia will conduct a world class field pea breeding program that will deliver superior new varieties with increased productivity and profitability for field pea growers and which will expand the crops adaptation range in Australia... The program will aim to combine desirable genetic variation that will increase grain yield potential, reduce crop input costs, reduce crop risk and maintain grain market access... The PBA field pea breeding program will deliver superior field pea varieties for the major field pea production zones over the next 5 year period that combine improved yield potential and reliability, disease resistance (e.g. virus, mildew, blackspot, bacterial blight), adaptation (e.g. plant type, flowering habit, soil boron toxicity tolerance) and suitable grain for end use markets (e.g. Kaspa type, Dun type)...

The frequency of lupins in the rotation has declined but the widening of the rotation has created some advantages for lupins... One year of lupins in four seems much more sustainable and WA still has the potential to produce in excess of 1.4 million tonnes in most seasons... Lupins will remain the dominant legume crop in WA because of their adaptation to large areas of sandplain soils...

The project has shown that the use of variety management packages for new pulse varieties has the potential to increase pulse production and reliability of production... Adoption of recommendations developed in this project will optimise grain yield benefits of new varieties, resulting in higher potential returns, and minimised production risks, preventing major economic losses that can occur with total crop failure... The aim of the project was to collect data for and develop simple regional variety specific agronomic management packages (VSAP) for new lentil, field pea and chickpea varieties...

New crop of pulses brings better options to grain growers.. Increasing soil nitrogen levels won't be the only advantage of the latest pulses, with the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) supporting Pulse Breeding Australia's development of new varieties aimed at giving growers a viable third rotation on top of cereals and oilseeds... Dr Brand said that while growers and advisers needed to be mindful of growth stages to ensure desiccants were not applied when seeds were too young, optimum application promised to give growers an edge over problem weeds...
