Wheat yield increases of 1.19t/ha possible in the north.. Maps detailing actual and achievable yield data have been compiled by the CSIRO and will be made accessible through a Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) funded project... Dr Hochman said the research found that the northern region's yields were 5.3% lower than relative yields in the southern region and 8.9% lower than in the western region, suggesting there is significant scope to boost yields in the north through better application of current technologies and best practice...

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...

Growers can obtain independent information to help them get the best value from their wheat production by accessing the 2015 Wheat Variety Guide for Western Australia ... Produced by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) with funding from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), the publication provides advice on variety, agronomy, disease and herbicide tolerance characteristics, medium to long-term yield performance and time of flowering information... Ms Trainor said that as well as being a useful resource to guide the management of varieties grown this year, growers could use the publication to help plan variety decisions for 2016...

Stay-green wheat may weaken drought's grip.. Stay-green was discovered in wheat more than 25 years ago, but the traits are only now becoming accessible to breeders through the development of molecular markers, the details of which will be published this year... Stay-green in plants can be determined by a range of underlying mechanisms, several of which facilitate increased water availability after flowering, such as small canopy size at flowering, increased moisture uptake after flowering, increased nitrogen uptake during grain-fill and increased nitrogen in leaves...

Congratulations to Australia's eminent scientists and research institutions selected to lead and contribute to projects in the International Wheat Yield Partnership (IWYP)... We have an important role in the IWYP initiative, with GRDC being one of the 12 investment Partners and Australia now successful in five of the eight multinational projects selected in the first research round ... In December, the GRDC will be putting the spotlight on Australia's engagement in global innovation, highlighting the objectives of the lead projects and the issues that grain growers face which the IWYP initiative seeks to address...

Slow maturing wheat yields solution to changing climate.. The research project monitored four wheat varieties planted across trial sites at Lake Bolac and Westmere (Vic) in the high rainfall zone, Temora and Junee (NSW) in the medium rainfall zone, and Condoblin (NSW) in the low rainfall zone, with each variety planted between mid-April and late May... Although dry conditions late in winter at Condoblin meant all varieties sown mid-April to mid-May had roughly the same yields, low density plantings benefitted the yield of slow maturing varieties Eaglehawk and Bolac , but reduced yield in fast maturing wheats sown later...

The GRDC has teamed with Bayer CropScience and CSIRO to create a new research partnership dedicated to breaking through the yield ceiling that has been holding back wheat production globally... The GRDC and CSIRO funded the initial research and now Bayer CropScience has joined the partnership to support the next stage of development... Mathias Kremer, head of the BioScience business unit at Bayer CropScience, says the company has already been working on the development of wheat varieties with higher yield, more efficient nutrient utilisation and tolerance against drought and heat stresses, and that the CSIRO's gene development offers an exciting new approach...

The trials offer the only direct comparison between lines from the two main global cereal and pulse breeding centres, CIMMYT and ICARDA.. The subsequent data and the seed resulting from this testing is crucial to the continuing development of Australian wheat, durum, barley and chickpea industries.. The CAIGE tour team 2015 hits the road: (from left) Dr Karim Ammar (Borlaug Global Rust Initiative), Dr Amer Dababat (CIMMYT), Dr Wuletaw Tadesse (ICARDA), Dr Suchismita Mondal (CIMMYT), Dr Hans Braun (Consortium Research Program on Wheat) and Professor Richard Trethowan (Plant Breeding Institute)...
