Lubeck farmer Peter Taylor (left) and Joe Boisen inspecting harvest options for a flood-damaged wheat crop... Even though some locals had started to believe poet Dorothea MacKellar was wrong, and rain would never return to the Wimmera, the entire region has suddenly flipped from being in a 13-year drought to sitting in water... For paddocks not submerged, a large flush of nitrogen is expected to have become available to this season's crops through breakdown of organic material - a process known as 'mineralisation' and potentially providing savings on fertiliser...

Recent flooding has reinforced southern Queensland grower Luke Arbuckle's commitment to creating a risk-resilient enterprise using twin-sowing and input control... Their 4653-hectare property received 140 millimetres of rain and their 3439ha property received 90mm... In addition to wheat and chickpeas, Luke has grown canola and mustard seed crops for their high market value and benefits as break crops, although so far sorghum and mungbeans have proven difficult to grow in the Arbuckles' farming system...

Risk management makes flood an opportunity.. When Luke was photographed by Ground Cover in the first week of March, about 254 millimetres of floodwater had already soaked into the soil profile, allowing him to revise upwards his wheat and chickpea yield expectations... Twin-sowing lucerne with wheat is another strategy that helps the Arbuckles to avoid having to apply nitrogen to subsequent crops for at least a season...

Fusarium stalk rot - red internal discoloration of sorghum stalks infected by Fusarium species.. The risk of sorghum stalk rot developing in these crops is likely to be higher in 2011 crops than in other years... Plants may or may not display symptoms of fusarium stalk rot inside the stem at the time of a pre-harvest glyphosate spray, so it is difficult to determine the potential risk of lodging in these situations...

Increasing the focus on farm biosecurity makes good sense to LeAnne and Wes Judd, dairy farmers who grow grain and fodder for their dairy on the Condamine River in Queensland... After attending a farm biosecurity and grain storage workshop last year, LeAnne has initiated several biosecurity activities for their farming operation... "The main reason we moved to Riverton from Emu Vale, east of Warwick, was to expand our business and ensure our sons had a future in the industry," LeAnne says...
