Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, 60-70 per cent of flour is used in traditional flat breads, 20-25 per cent of flour is used in western style breads and 5-10 per cent is used in cakes and biscuits... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil...

Barley stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis) is currently an exotic disease and barley grass stripe rust can attack some susceptible barley varieties... Stem rust survives the summer mainly on volunteer wheat, barley, triticale and some grasses including common wheat grass and barley grass... The most effective way to control the rusts of barley is to grow varieties with resistance or avoid growing those that are rated as very susceptible or susceptible to each disease...

The stripe rust that infects barley grass is either the wheat-attacking form or a second form that is specialised to barley grass... A form of stripe rust that is specialised to barley grass, known as barley grass stripe rust, can infect some barley cultivars, but the threat it poses is minor... Recent GRDC-funded tests in Mexico have shown that Australian barley cultivars are generally susceptible to the barley form of stripe rust, which means this exotic disease poses a significant threat to the Australian barley industry...

Field trials undertaken over the last 4 years have investigated various pre-emergence herbicides for brome grass control in wheat... In a recent survey by Fleet and Gill (2008), farmers in low rainfall districts in South Australia and Victoria reported increasing incidence of barley grass in their crops... In the paper we will report results of studies undertaken to develop management strategies for brome and barley grass...

Mallee grower Dean Wormald shows just how much cropping in this region has changed over the past decade as growers have learned to "farm the rain"... Ten years ago, Dean started pulling down fencelines and now crops paddocks of about 400ha, some with 4km runs for the cropping machinery, lifting efficiency considerably... This year, Dean had already received 256mm by June, raising hopes that the averages - 1.2t/ha for wheat, 1.4t/ha for barley and 0.4t/ha for canola - could easily be doubled in 2014...

Several field studies were undertaken in SA and WA to identify promising herbicides for the control of barley grass in wheat... After barley grass was confirmed to be increasing on SA and WA farms, laboratory studies were undertaken to determine the reasons for this trend... The project was designed to identify weeds that were emerging as a threat to productivity of grain crops in SA and WA and to undertake studies to determine underlying reasons for their increasing incidence...
