subsequent cereal crop

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)...

Low rainfall cereal crops can take a break and grow profits.. MSF agronomist Michael Moodie, pictured in foreground speaking at one of the break crop comparison trial sites at Karoonda in SA, says two-year break phases are a reliable management tool for increasing the yields of subsequent wheat crops in paddocks where agronomic constraints are affecting yields of continuous cereals... Mallee Sustainable Farming (MSF) agronomist Michael Moodie, who has been a co-ordinator of the Low Rainfall Crop Sequencing Project, says two-year break phases are a reliable management tool for increasing the yields of subsequent wheat crops in paddocks where agronomic constraints are affecting yields of continuous cereals...

A project is underway in southern NSW to help growers put broadleaf species into crop rotations to improve grain production and profitability... NSW DPI research scientist Dr Guangdi Li, based at Wagga Wagga Agricultural Institute, says each of the grower groups is responsible for coordinating large-scale studies to compare crop performance with and without broadleaf species, while researchers concentrate on the benefits of break crops on nitrogen nutrition, disease break and weeds aspects... Dr Li says the project aims to identify whether profitable broadleaf cropping rotations are available as alternatives to continuous cereal cropping, and to provide guidelines for grain growers and their advisers on when and where to include what break crops to achieve the best outcome...

The availability of GM canola has prompted BCG (formerly the Birchip Cropping Group) to examine weed and herbicide-management options associated with different canola systems to support decision-making among growers in Victoria and NSW... To date, the study has found that while adoption of RR canola levelled off when conditions switched from dry to wet, the glyphosate-resistance trait can boost weed management options across an entire rotation system... Mr Hausler identified benefits associated with RR canola in his IWM system, including: excellent weed control in dry and wet conditions, including annual ryegrass, Indian hedge mustard and white ironweed; profitability; ability to rest Group A herbicides in the RR canola as well as in subsequent cereal crops; a saving of $30 to $40/ha in herbicides in subsequent cereal crops due to clean paddocks; and better yields than TT canola and similar to Clearfield varieties...

Break crops can improve cereal yields by 0.6 t/ha... Break crops should be considered, providing they help control weeds and disease... A comparison of annual profit from a 5 year cropping sequence, where wheat, canola, lupins, grazed pasture or sprayed pasture are grown in the 3 rd year of the crop sequence...
