Image of the Harrington Seed Destructor.. De Bruin Engineering's Harrington Seed Destructor (HSD), designed and manufactured in Australia, has been recognised on the world stage, winning the 2015 Edison Award in the US in the 'Smart Agriculture' category... Key findings include: 69 per cent of surveyed growers use a combination of methods to pick the right time to sell, while 31 per cent take the price on offer; women are more willing to try new approaches (42 per cent of women versus 38 per cent of men) and they are also more likely to adjust practices in response to the market (64 per cent versus 60 per cent); and 69 per cent of growers say maximising production and quality is the most important profitability driver; 31 per cent say managing costs is most important...

The collaboration will enable Syngenta and InterGrain to develop innovative varieties and solutions that will help barley producers globally to increase productivity and reduce costs... Under the agreement, InterGrain will be responsible for all breeding in Australia using both InterGrain and Syngenta germplasm, while Syngenta will gain exclusive rights to commercialise new InterGrain barley varieties and rights to commercialise existing InterGrain varieties outside Australia... InterGrain's acting chief executive officer, Tress Walmsley, says InterGrain has been actively seeking an alliance with a global bioscience technology company to expand its breeding program and deliver more rapid improvements in barley variety performance...

InterGrain's acting chief executive officer, Tress Walmsley, says InterGrain has been actively seeking an alliance with a global bioscience technology company to expand its breeding program and deliver more rapid improvements in barley variety performance... Ms Walmsley says Syngenta has not taken an equity position in InterGrain, and she confirms that decisions on research and breeding will continue to be made by the management and board of InterGrain.

The genetics of brewing better beer.. Genetic analysis shows that malting barley grown under Australian conditions requires a finer balance between malting quality and pre-harvest sprouting tolerance than its Canadian counterparts.. The market has a strong preference for the malting flavour of Canadian barley and is often willing to pay a $50-per-tonne premium for it...

The aim of the project was to enhance capability in marker validation and implementation in the Western Australian (WA) barley breeding program, leading to more rapid development of improved varieties... Markers were used to: accelerate backcrossing; inter-cross various target traits; improve genetic value of doubled haploid (DH) lines by screening donor plants; and improve genetic gain by post-screening DH lines... Molecular markers were used to: (1) accelerate back-crossing target traits into elite genetic backgrounds; (2) inter-cross various target traits; (3) improve genetic value of DH lines by pre-screening donor plants for DH production; and (4) improve genetic gain by post-screening DH lines before field testing...

Barley Breeding Australia (BBA)-West operated collaboratively as a part of a national barley breeding strategy to address industry needs in Western Australian (WA) and south eastern (SE) Australian regions with neutral to acid soils... The resulting malting varieties (Baudin and Hamelin ) represented significant improvements in malting quality and there has been strong demand for these varieties in the international marketplace... The germplasm and knowledge developed in this project has provided, and will continue to provide, strong support to the ongoing development of commercially successful, targeted-to-market, elite malting and feed barley varieties by commercial barley breeding entities...

The project has provided a resource to help the wheat and barley industries control fungal diseases... New sources of resistance were identified to help with the more intractable diseases and these were introgressed into adapted varieties for use by breeders... The project has provided the resources to conduct genetic studies into the control of resistance to some diseases...

Genetic analysis in barley suggests that the Rrs1 gene locus is a region that either hosts a suite of different scald resistance genes or numerous alleles of this gene exist in barley germplasm... Modern tools to identify desirable breeding traits are molecular markers that indicate the presence or absence of a gene that is responsible for the trait... Aligning the disease scores from each progeny line with its genetic fingerprint information revealed those fingerprint signals (molecular markers) that predict the resistance of a progeny plant most accurately...

Over the three-year course of the project, a total of 3,386 barley lines were evaluated in 24,155 assays... In 2006, the project was inundated with requests from barley breeders, and our facilities were used to capacity for this purpose throughout 2006, with 520 lines and a total of 12,480 plants assayed, and 61 lines (1,464 assays) into 2007... All seedling tests in this project were performed using a set of four specific isolates with characteristic pathotypes on the barley differential set...
