Leader of the Southern Pulse Agronomy project Dr Jason Brand says growers need to get the fundamentals for their faba beans right up front, such as row spacing, plant density and pest and disease management, to avoid any issues in the canopy later in the season... Growers wanting to avoid issues with canopy management in faba bean crops later this season should first get fundamental measures such as row spacing, plant density, inoculation and pest and disease management right earlier in the season... Dr Brand has been looking at novel ways of reducing the problem in the HRZ, including chemical and mechanical treatments, but says the key message for growers was still to focus on getting the important things right early in the growing season...

Experimental data are presented that show that fallow management, in particular that of weeds and residue cover, not only affects the amount of water stored or lost during the summer, but also has an effect on the loss of water past the root zone during the subsequent growing season... Model simulations capture these effects and a scenario analysis indicates that retaining residues past sowing increases the risk of deep water loss relatively rapidly... The effects of different residue management will be greater in wetter summers...

Dr Kevin Moore, NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) special plant pathologist (pulses and oilseeds), Tamworth, NSW says many 2011 chickpea crops had problems with establishment and seedling disease... "More than half the seed lots were infected with Botrytis and 89 per cent were colonised by other fungi," Dr Moore said... Dr Moore presented the findings to growers and agronomists at the recent round of Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Updates and said the work highlighted the importance of proper seed treatment...

To produce the highest quality durum, growers need to develop a management plan which considers agronomic and variety selection as well as understanding the requirements of pasta manufacturers and end users... germination or 'sprouting' starts a complex series of chemical reactions in the grain including an increase in grain alpha-amylase, an enzyme that breaks down starch... durum is assessed for quality on receival with grain segregated according to the quality parameters of dr1, dr2 and dr3...
