The Lower Eyre Peninsula survey showed most paddocks had internal blackleg infection levels below 10% unlikely to suffer a yield or oil content penalty... Current varieties have a number of resistance genes if blackleg overcomes one resistance gene, other resistance genes remain effective and so the crops should not become completely susceptible... Final grain yield after slashing was similar in all varieties (about 0.8 t/ha average), except CB1206 (0.2 t/ha)...

Western Australia's coming cropping season is expected to be a high risk year for blackleg disease in canola but growers can take steps to minimise the damage... Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) plant pathologist Ravjit Khangura said growers should select resistant varieties, not seed into or close to last year's canola stubble and, if warranted, use a fungicide seed dressing or fungicide-amended fertiliser... The National Brassica Pathology Working Group, of which she is a member, is concerned that growers will face the risk of crop failure due to blackleg if attempting to grow canola on canola...

Spring-sown canola widens HRZ options.. Winchelsea grower Lachie Wilson and his Angus bulls size up spring-sown canola as a grain-and-graze option in Victoria's high-rainfall zone... Establishing canola in spring instead of autumn, and hard grazing the crop from December to April, has further allowed the Wilsons to save on slug baiting, Lachie says...

Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Southern Regional Panel chair David Shannon says the risk of blackleg infection in crops and potential for yield losses this year remains extreme... Mr Shannon says it is imperative that growers and their advisers implement management strategies before they begin sowing, to reduce the risk to crops and the broader industry. ".. The Risk Assessor, developed by the GRDC and industry partners, can help growers and advisers determine if a high risk situation exists in certain paddocks and which management practices can be changed to reduce the risk of severe blackleg infection.

Managing invertebrate pests in new farming systems.. There is a continuing need for species-specific research into the ecology of species for which there are currently no effective controls, such as European earwig... The question of pesticide effects is currently being addressed through the GRDC-funded project "Developing and promoting IPM in Australian grains" which is comparing three pest management approaches: (i) "nil" insecticide input (control), (ii) conventional "high" insecticide input, and an alternative "low" insecticide input approach...

Gary Lang burns wheat stubble before sowing canola to reduce the risk of frost damage on his property north of Wickepin, Western Australia... Since then, Gary has burnt his wheat stubbles immediately before sowing canola... Gary says a hot burn is done one or two days before canola is sown and there is not usually enough stubble in the following wheat crop to warrant burning...
