Risk can be reduced by setting profitable crop yield targets, calculating the amount of water needed to achieve these yield targets and assessing that against available stored soil moisture and the probability of receiving additional moisture through in-crop rainfall... Research conducted by Dr Whish and funded by CSIRO and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), reinforces the benefits of setting profitable crop yield targets, calculating the amount of water needed to achieve these yield targets and assessing that against available stored soil moisture and the potential for in-crop rainfall... The total water requirement is 260mm...

Heat tolerant sorghum to boost production in the north.. "Planting at this time increases the risk that high temperatures will coincide with the emergence and flowering of the seed head-a time when the crop is most susceptible," Professor Hammer says... Dr Scott Chapman, a senior researcher from CSIRO who presented the heat-tolerance research findings at the GRDC Updates earlier this year, says the key message to growers is that genetic variation for heat tolerance around flowering has been found...

Dr James Hunt, pictured, says planting a range of cultivars at their optimal sowing time can improve profitability for wheat growers... Sowing a range of cultivars in their ideal sowing windows will give wheat growers the best chance of balancing the increasing risks of heat and frost damage... Wedgetail, Cutlass, Trojan, Mace 10 April - 15 May "Three years of trials across multiple environments in SA have shown that yields decline at a rate of 28 kg/ha per day once sowing extends past the end of the first week in May," Dr Hunt said...
