Although a high-risk crop, oaten hay has the potential to outperform all other cereals with respect to gross margins... The widespread use of genetic analysis in agriculture is limited by economic factors... In the short term, fungicides used at seeding (seed dressings or applied in-furrow with fertiliser) and foliar fungicide sprays will mitigate risk and minimise losses...

Growers would like more information on choice of the most suitable break crops for their own situation... The results of the survey present an up to date assessment of how farmers regard break crops in their farming system... The reviews, interviews, workshops and past surveys have been collated to establish a consensus on attitudes towards break crops in Western Australia...

Sowing method (knife points or discs) did not affect performance of pre-seeding herbicides... Project No.: DAW 0134 Paper reviewed by: John Holmes Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 241.. Overall, the correlation coefficient between the observed ED 99dosages and the dosages predicted using Model A was 0.60 with p < 0.06...

Inter-row weed control in wide row lupin using knockdown-based tank mixes Dr Abul Hashem 1, Ray Fulwood 2and Chris Roberts 3, 1Senior Research Officer, Department of Agriculture and Food, Northam, 2Farmer, Meckering, WA, 3Technical Officer, Department of Agriculture and Food, Northam.. Weed dry matter was reduced (Figure 2) but due to the dry season, only marginal increases in lupin yields compared to the broadcast treatments were realised due to the likely competition for water... Enhancing the depletion of the existing seedbank is just as important as controlling seasonal seed set...

Aphid damage to canola - not all cultivars are equal Fran oise A. Berlandier and Christiaan Valentine, Department of Agriculture, Western Australia.. Oil concentration can be increased either by increasing the amount of oil or by reducing the amount of protein and/or residue in the seed... On a seed basis, there is an amount of protein already in the seed before oil accumulation begins (Hocking and Mason 1993)...

Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, the production and supply of fertiliser accounted for a large proportion (35%) of the GHG produced from wheat production, and occurred in the pre-farm stage (Table 1)... Overall, constraints have a far smaller effect on heavy soils than on sand plain soils...

The decline in profitability of the high rainfall farm is driven by declining terms of trade rather than the yield reductions under predicted climate change... Farmers and advisors still require a simple method to estimate yield potential using a simple spreadsheet or 'back of the envelope' type calculations... The soil moisture values calculated by STIN XL for sowing dates later than 1 April were seen as an underestimate...

KEYMESSAGES During the crop growing season, there was little difference in soil water under annual crop, perennial pasture, and pasture-cropped plots... In the paper, we concentrate on plots in which neutron moisture meter access tubes were installed... Deep drainage beyond a depth of 3.0 m was calculated from rainfall (measured on-site with a tipping-bucket rain gauge), ET 0(Allen et al. 1998) and change in soil moisture storage...
