Catalogue: GRDC Updates (North)
Improving water use efficiency using cover crops of millet... Soil water was measured at cover-crop planting, time of spray-out (2004 replicated sites and all 2005 sites) and at all sites at winter crop planting... In the analysis an average world oil price of US$68.40 a barrel (West Texas Intermediate) and an exchange rate of US74 cents is assumed...

Canola is often windrowed to ensure all pods are mature at harvest... In summary, windrowing too early can result in lower yields and oil contents and too late will lead to shattering losses... Canola is sold into a deregulated domestic market and the responsibility of finding an acceptable price and arranging a buyer rests with the grower...

Given that soybeans are such a pivotal crop in the USA mid west states, it seems that the Americans will favour this as their primary source... North Dakota State University attributes this increase completely to the uptake of GM Canola... Test plots have shown yield potential in the United Kingdom of 7 tonne to the hectare with one variety producing 7.8 t/ha in a test plot environment...

Two major ingredients of fish feed are protein and oil or fat... Currently most fish feeds comprise 20 to 30 per cent of combined fish oil and poultry fat... The company's research has discovered: faster fish growth rates in winter because canola oil is more digestible; better conversion rates - more fish for less feed; canola oil maintains a favourable balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in salmon flesh; and less wastage of the valuable 'healthy' long-chain omega-3'EPA and DHA' oils from fish oils, as a higher proportion remains in the fish flesh rather than being used by the fish for energy...

The Canola Quality Objectives Group (CQOG) aimed to improve market signals from customers to breeders and researchers by formalising links and documenting market information so that they can be used by researchers and investors in their planning and investment decisions... The Australian Oilseeds Federation (AOF) 2010 plan identified an additional $800 million of value that could be captured by the industry as a result of shifts in consumer preferences... There has been considerable discussion around the requirements for this market...

Charles Sturt University PhD student Clare Flakelar is researching whether health-promoting minor compounds in canola oil can be selectively bred... "Processors have stated that the primary reason for using such techniques is to provide consumers with the end product they prefer," Ms Flakelar says... Ms Flakelar says by verifying that the canola variety itself is important in the balance of these compounds, it gives breeders the ability to drive this opportunity...
