The development of varieties Oscar, Dunkeld and Rainbow - names older canola growers often mention when discussing their experiences with the crop - was a major turning point for the industry in 1992 and 1993, raising the bar for yield and blackleg resistance... Led by Neil Wratten from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and Dr Phil Salisbury from the Victorian DPI, the program supported by the GRDC left a legacy of disease-resistant, high-yielding varieties that laid the foundations for a strong canola industry and more robust crop rotations... Hybrid (F1) seed produced on the female plants is a cross between the female and the male plants in the paddock...

An international germplasm evaluation program that has been delivering elite bread wheat germplasm for developing advanced new Australian wheat varieties is to be expanded to include durum wheat and barley... The germplasm is imported through the GRDC's CAIGE project that tests the material in Australian yield and disease trials... Since CAIGE uses in-kind contributions from breeding companies to run the majority of field trials, Dr Dieters has been negotiating with the main barley-breeding companies to establish a similar system to test future shipments of ICARDA barley...

The development of new varieties is moving away from government agencies, reports Helen Olsen.. About 16 companies have been formed in recent years, reflecting a slow but steady shift away from government agencies... Mr Gleeson sees the role of private breeding companies as producing improved varieties for growers in a shorter time, in a market that is rapidly changing...

The proportion of the total seasonal water use which is used by a crop after flowering goes a long way to determining the yield and quality of the grain produced... The management plan has to cater for the variation between seasons that occurs, and requires flexibility... Growers need to investigate their soils for themselves...

New wheat changes weed management options.. James Clark, Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) northern panel chair said Elmore CL Plus , a new Clearfield wheat released by Australian Grain Technologies (AGT) gives growers another tool to combat problem weeds... "There is a discount in moving from a prime hard to hard variety but it may be worth it for the opportunity to reset the system, control weeds and use residual chemicals in the fallow, a practice that would normally lock growers out of wheat that year," he said...

The project will continue to produce and release to breeding companies bread wheat lines with enhanced resistance to crown rot in better adapted backgrounds which may be used by commercial breeding companies to improve resistance to crown rot in released wheat cultivars... Dr Damian Herde of the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) told workshop participants that there was a range of new material coming through breeding programs based on current commercial cultivars and recent additions.. Creating superior crown rot resistance in wheat is the aim of Queensland scientists at the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), based at the Leslie Research Facility in Toowoomba...

Growers are invited to bookmark Variety Central on their website browsers to help manage information about the EPR collection system, the EPR rates for different varieties, seed distribution status and links to websites that can help manage compliance with licencing agreements... Mr McGrath describes the website as a key resource for understanding licencing agreements associated with EPR varieties, as well as information about new varieties, fact sheets and information about seed distribution and contact details for the seed companies... "I also include media statements from breeding companies about the release of new varieties in the 'News' section and hope to soon include a summary of all the new variety releases for which seed is available for the first time."..
