Helicoverpa is less damaging in peanuts than other legume crops but high populations can inflict significant damage... Peanuts have a high tolerance of defoliation with high populations of 12/m 2 having little impact on yield in well grown crops... Good agronomy and soil moisture are crucial as large, vigorously-growing plants suffer less defoliation for a given helicoverpa population and have less risk of damage...

Precision agriculture (PA) involves a range of methodologies and technologies which aim to improve the precision of agricultural management in spatially-variable fields... The research investigates the potential of using a combination of EMI sensing in conjunction with differential fertilizer management to optimize the match between spatially-variable plant water demand and plant available water...

The half-day technical workshop for agronomists, advisers, consultants and growers has been organised to review the impact of frost and discuss frost management strategies for irrigated cropping systems and current and future research efforts... Growers and advisers are urged to inspect crops for damage caused by frosts which have affected many crops in early growth stages... More information on frost and its impact on crops can be found in the GRDC Managing Frost Risk booklet, www.grdc.com.au/GRDC-Booklet-ManagingFrostRisk ...

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...

Stripe rust management Prevention is generally best - Grains Research &amp; Development Corporation </title> <meta name="GRDC.Tags" value=""> <meta name="Keywords" value="Wheat, stripe rust, leaf disease, fungicides, yield, 0, Stripe rust management Prevention is generally best"> <meta name="Description" value=" Richard Daniel, Northern Grower Alliance (NGA) &bull; Early or preventative foliar sprays, applied from GS32 onwards on moderately susceptible varieties, have provided the best returns in northern trials over the last three years &bull; High grain prices and low fungicide costs mean breakeven yield benefits required are often only 1-2% &bull; Application can be the major cost of treatment &bull.. Fungicide recommendations for stripe rust management have been based on disease threshold levels on specific leaves... This was a sensible strategy given high fungicide costs, low grain prices and the need for higher levels of yield benefit to generate economic returns...
