Murray Bridge to host grains research Update.. Frost, in-crop herbicides, pastures, canola, top performing cereals and emerging commercial innovations will be on the agenda at the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) grains research Update at the Murray Bridge Golf Club... South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) researcher Andrew Ware will delve into plant development of canola under different sowing times and seasonal conditions, while SARDI's Rob Wheeler and University of Adelaide's Jason Eglinton will highlight the "best and fairest" wheat and barley performers in trials across SA in 2014...

Higher yields require increased monitoring and correct management practices to avoid yield penalties... nitrogen supply at sowing should be 100-120kg n/ha, including the amount already in the soil and amount to be applied... Trial results have shown a narrower row spacing, such as 17.5 centimetres (above), can give higher yields in irrigated wheat than wider row spacings...

Faba bean foray into the north takes hold.. With his wife Janette and son Lance, Murray was one of the first growers to sow faba beans on the Darling Downs - a region that supports about a third of all northern grain growers... In delivering faba beans to Todd Jorgensen's AssociatedGRAIN in Dalby, Murray says "cashflow" from the crop averaged $454 a tonne in 2014...

In delivering faba beans to Todd Jorgensen's AssociatedGRAIN in Dalby, Murray says "cashflow" from the crop averaged $454 a tonne in 2014... Murray says that so far, the operational efficiency gains that stem from harvesting earlier have outweighed the risk of wet conditions downgrading the quality of the beans, which are susceptible to damage in windrows...

The principal aim of the project was to contribute to the continuing adoption of integrated pest management (IPM) by grain growers in the GRDC's northern region, specifically, the Darling Downs and Central Queensland... The finding suggests that the application of this technique for predator/prey field studies has limited field application... The outcome was achieved through facilitated learning by growers and their advisers via grower group meetings, field day demonstrations, technical literature and presentations by entomologists at technical forums e.g. Grower and Adviser Updates...

LIFTING YIELDS FROM 5T/HA TO 8T/HA OR MORE Growing irrigated wheat in southern New South Wales and northern Victoria is more than simply adding water to dryland varieties... Higher yields require increased monitoring and correct management practices to avoid yield penalties... Constraints to achieving 8t/ha include late sowing, poor tillering, low water allocations that prevent the correct number of spring irrigations, inadequate nutrition, lodging, lower wheat prices or other agronomic factors...
