Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, 60-70 per cent of flour is used in traditional flat breads, 20-25 per cent of flour is used in western style breads and 5-10 per cent is used in cakes and biscuits... 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...

The time factor was changed by growing more generations per year and reducing the degree of homozygosity required before lines are evaluated in yield trials or used as parents... j) Co-operative research DAQ00110 involved cooperation activities for several related projects including the Australian Wheat and Barley Molecular Marker Program (AWBMMP) designed to study attributes needed for the future improvement of barley... QTL associated with barley ( Hordeum vulgare ) feed quality traits measured through in situ digestion...

To reduce the cost of combining traits, molecular markers associated with the genes controlling trait expression have been identified... Breeding lines evaluated under DAQ00175 demonstrated that the new germplasm can alleviate more barley production issues than the previous germplasm or introductions from other parts of Australia... Rather than repeat the outline of breeding activities applied under DAQ00110, information about genes and traits in the new germplasm resource is presented...

About 200 breeding lines were exchanged between the three countries to improve resistance to the diseases blackleg, white rust and sclerotinia and also tolerance to pod shattering, drought and high temperatures, plus the traits required for canola-quality mustard... During two exchanges, 106 breeding lines of Brassica napus and 104 of B. juncea were exchanged between the three countries... All countries will benefit, with India and China seeking to replace their traditional rapeseed and mustard cultivars with Australian canola-quality (low erucic acid, low glucosinolate) B. napus varieties," Associate Professor Salisbury says...

An international alliance to advance wheat breeding - known as CAIGE - may not be high in the consciousness of Australian grain growers, but it is delivering benefits by helping to deliver new varieties with better yields... The elite genetic material, sourced from CIMMYT and ICARDA's scanning of global diversity in wheat's genetic material, is fast-tracked into Australia's commercial gene pool as advanced breeding lines, targeting yield, disease resistance and stress tolerance... Breeding lines sourced through CAIGE are grown alongside local varieties in Australian environments, including at sites located across the WA grainbelt, to allow for differences in environmental conditions and seasonal risks...

Research scientist Denise Barbulescu checks canola germplasm for fungal growth as part of the GRDC-funded National Brassica Germplasm Improvement Program at Victorian DPI's Grains Innovation Park in Horsham... "Preliminary screening shows the cabbage family might have another two or three breeding lines containing blackleg-resistant genes," she says, adding that further testing will look at the potential for this new genetic material to help ward off blackleg and increase the canola gene pool for plant breeders... Denise is continuing this year to search for stable genes that consistently show high levels of tolerance to pod-shatter in more than 200 crossbred canola lines developed by the University of Western Australia and Nuseed...

New research results have given grain growers hope that partial resistance to the damaging disease crown rot may be around the corner for durum wheat... The figures are reported in the GRDC publication, The Current and Potential Costs from Diseases of Wheat in Australia , which also details estimates that if current control measures weren't in place crown rot would cost the industry $36.44/ha or $434 million per year... Dr Steven Simpfendorfer, NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI), Tamworth plant pathologist says a GRDC-supported research project demonstrated that partial crown rot resistance present in hexaploid wheat lines could be transferred into durum wheats...

Faba beans are grown in two major regions in Australia, the Mediterranean-type environment of the Southern Region and the sub-tropical environment of northern New South Wales (NSW)... Recent surveys and trials have demonstrated that cercospora is now widely established throughout the Southern Region and can result in significant yield reduction... In both 2009 and 2010 a significant level of seed staining due to pea seedborne mosaic virus occurred and seed samples were assessed for incidence and severity of staining...
