14 BWD00024: Maintaining profitable farming systems with retained stubble in Victoria and Tasmania .................................... The over-arching aim of the project is to improve yield and water-use-efficiency of irrigated wheat production across the Northern Region by developing improved agronomic practices to reduce the incidence of lodging and increase the yield potential of irrigated wheat... Overall, the project will deliver a comprehensive research, communication and extension program that will ensure more effective management of water repellent agricultural soils in WA whilst building capacity for future soils research and development in Western Australia...

The mid North High Rainfall Farming Systems Group covers the major high rainfall zone of the mid North of South Australia while the Alkaline Soils Group of Yorke Peninsula covers both high rainfall farming systems down the spine of the Peninsula and lower rainfall areas as well... While cereals crops predominate in the farming systems of both regions based on areas grown and the full suite of pulse and oilseed crops are grown as well, providing nitrogen and disease breaks which result in cereal yields nearing close to maximum water use efficiency... Growers will achieve good crop establishment will be achieved in retained stubble farming systems and they will have the ability to manage weeds, pests and diseases with similar yield and input costs equivalent to that obtained when stubbles are not retained...

Over the last decade there has been a large shift by Mallee farmers to adopt stubble retention systems with no-till in their farming systems... Key factors include: Growers that have been utilising stubble retention and no-till farming systems for many years are facing production and profitability constraints and have general concerns that their farming system as a whole is not performing as well as it should be, relative to more traditional farming systems involving low groundcover and higher erosion risks... Project outcomes will be achieved by employing a range of project activities that combine targeted local extension to address gaps in motivation, attitude and ability with on-farm field trial activities designed in collaboration with local farmers and advisors in mallee (including Victoria, NSW and SA) to fill gaps in local knowledge and understanding...
