The aim of the project is to overcome the barriers in growing two crops under irrigation in 52 weeks or less... Double cropping entails more than just growing a winter crop then following it with a summer crop... Core sites will be established to enable accurate and intensive investigation following identification of the most critical regional issues identified by the project steering committee, while taking into account relevant prior RD&E.Preliminary issues already identified in the GRDC Irrigation Regional Cropping Solutions (RCS) Network will form the starting point of the project, namely reliable assessment of herbicide residues in irrigated cropping systems, new technology in herbicide tolerant crops and maturity of crop varieties in Northern Victoria...

With summer fast approaching, northern grain growers thinking of double cropping their country should be preparing now and addressing questions of soil nutrition, water availability and weed pressure... In thinking about herbicides, grain growers will also need to factor in which weeds are likely to be present over summer so that they can utilise a crop which will allow for the right chemistry groups to be used as part of their herbicide rotations... For example, mungbean growers can use Group A chemistry in crop for grass weed control, whereas sorghum growers tackling the same grass weeds can use Group K residual herbicides...
