KEYMESSAGES Incorrect use of phosphine since the 1950s, has led to escalating resistance in stored grain insects which threatens the continued use of phosphine at the farm level... 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... When running a trial it is important to: 1...

Narrow-leafed lupin (Lupinus angustifolius) originates from the Mediterranean region and has become the largest grain legume crop in Australia due to its adaptation to infertile sandy soils, reasonable tolerances to diseases and pests and its use as a break crop... Lupins are used mainly for animal feed markets but more recently interest has increased in its use in foods such as breads, noodles, sausages and other products... Narrow-leafed lupins are the largest and most important grain legume crop in Western Australia, but production has slumped, in part due to weed control challenges...

" Facilitating increased on-farm adoption of broadleaf species in crop sequences to improve grain production and profitability.. The area sown to pulse legume crops or canola has dramatically declined in the past 8-10 years, and despite 65-70% of southern grain region still growing pastures in rotation with crops, many of these pastures tend to have low legume contents and provide little nitrogen benefit to following crops... There are many good reasons why growers have reduced the frequency of use of broadleaf species in recent years related to late starts to the growing season, drought and risk aversion...
