There is an array of resources that irrigators can access to enhance their irrigation knowledge and the profitability of irrigated grain production: Cotton and grain irrigation workshops Cotton and Grain Irrigation Website WATERpak.. They have produced a number of resources that growers and consultants can access to advance their knowledge of irrigation management and maximize the profitability of irrigated grain production... The Cotton and Grain Irrigation website (established under the National Program for Sustainable Irrigation funded Irrigation Knowledge Management project ) provides irrigators and consultants with the latest information on irrigation...

Some wheat varieties have the ability to store water soluble carbohydrates (WSC) that can be used as a reserve of assimilates for grain filling in the event of water deficit at the end of the growing season... The results may go some way to explaining why selection for yield in Eastern Australian breeding programs has not resulted in new varieties with increased WSC accumulation, as has been observed in the West Australian and CIMMYT breeding programs (van Herwaarden and Richards, 2002)... Previous work has shown that carbohydrate accumulation is moderately heritable (Ruuska et al., 2006)...

Preliminary studies carried out as part of the project last season, sought to establish whether crop reflectance readings could be related to crop size and plant nitrogen uptake at the key timings for in-crop nitrogen application tillering to flag leaf emergence (GS22 - GS39)... Much of the work on wheat has been conducted in higher yielding irrigated scenarios following Sorghum so that soil nitrogen reserve is sufficiently depleted to ensure a response to nitrogen... Furthermore if a split nitrogen application during stem elongation (GS30 start of stem elongation followed by GS33 - 39 third node to flag leaf emergence) could be employed in the knowledge that it was not inferior to other N strategies, it would not only give a greater flexibility to respond to the season in terms of spring rainfall (for dryland growers), but would also allow the growth changes (e.g. NDVI "change map") to be recorded with crop sensors (on a spatial basis) following the application of the first dose...

Application of fertilisers to meet crop demand is only a part of developing a crop nutrition plan... Most of the nutrients taken up by cotton from the soil are derived from the decomposition of previous crop residues, soil microorganisms and soil organic matter... Salinity is measured by testing the soil solutions electrical conductivity (CEC)...

Previous cereal research work in northern NSW has focussed on in-crop nitrogen application as a "top-up" treatment with the greater proportion of N being applied to the seedbed... Work in 2006 and 2007 showed significant differences in canopy structure when nitrogen was delayed until stem elongation (GS31) but in both years that was no significant increase in grain yield compared to when N was applied at sowing... Figure 3: Influence of split N applications on grain yield from early and main sown EGA Gregory For the later sowing, results are very similar to those in 2006 and 2007 with split applied or N applied at GS31 maintaining grain yields but limited significant yield response compared to the seedbed N treatment (figure 3)...

Increasing Yield of Irrigated Wheat in Queensland and Northern NSW.. We present preliminary results from the GRDC funded 'Achievable Yields' project on the yield potential of irrigated wheat across the region... Results of sampling 12 irrigated wheat paddocks across southern QLD in 2008 (a) mineral N in the top 1.8 m of soil at sowing (b) grain yield reported by farmers, and yield loss calculated from the difference between potential yield (estimated from APSIM or non-lodged quadrats) and quadrat cuts of lodged crops...

Precision agriculture (PA) involves a range of methodologies and technologies which aim to improve the precision of agricultural management in spatially-variable fields... The research investigates the potential of using a combination of EMI sensing in conjunction with differential fertilizer management to optimize the match between spatially-variable plant water demand and plant available water...
