Beat sheet and sweep net sampling of faba beans both severely underestimate the density of helicoverpa larvae, particularly smaller ones; a visual inspection is critical to improving pest number estimates.. Populations may be exceeding threshold before this is detected," Dr Miles says... Insect damage is not responsible for the majority of defective grain but further analysis is warranted to consider how the pod damage caused by helicoverpa may be contributing to weathering and poor colour in faba beans by allowing entry of fungi and bacteria...

Faba beans pass the low-rainfall test in NSW.. Trials by the NSW Department of Primary Industries have demonstrated that compared with chickpeas, faba beans have the edge when it comes to nitrogen input, herbicide options, weed competition and disease resistance... The Murrays were also drawn to faba beans because they are easier to harvest than chickpeas and offer an opportunity to widen their sowing and harvesting windows, reducing the demand on labour and machinery at peak times...

Smooth farm transfer starts with a plan.. Deciding how to transfer the farm is rarely easy because a fair outcome may not be equal for everyone, especially when recognising individuals who have contributed directly to building the business... The best time and place to start these discussions is when someone enters the family or business such as a son or daughter returning to work on the farm or someone joining the family...

Alan Bowring who is researching the role of head and flag leaf development in contributing to wheat yield... New research is suggesting lower leaves contribute more to wheat yield than is currently the "accepted norm" - under which protection of the flag leaf is the principal determinant of grain yield... In similar cool long season conditions in Australia this also seems to be the case in more difficult hot, dry seasons in northern Australia, Alan Bowring's results suggest that the importance of the flag leaf is about half of what is accepted in the UK. His data indicates that in these dry conditions the earlier leaves preceding the flag leaf (especially the preceding two; flag leaf -1 and -2) have a similar overall contribution to yield as the flag leaf, at least in environments such as northern NSW. Contribution to yield of pre-flowering stem reserves was assessed in the research and is believed to contribute between 16 and 21 per_cent by remobilisation of sugars and proteins to the grain...
