" 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...

Grower groups investigate value of broadleaf crops The value of growing pulse or brassica crops in various combinations and under different management regimes in a cereal-based cropping system is being investigated through a collaborative southern region project... The supplement outlines projects undertaken under the GRDC Crop Sequencing Initiative, which aims to help growers profitably integrate a greater range of land uses, including pastures and fallows, into their farming systems... Mr Kearns said the GRDC Crop Sequencing Initiative was established to improve understanding of the risks and benefits associated with including a broader range of crop types and end uses in the farming system...

Western Australian research suggests the inclusion of fallow in the crop sequence can be a productive option, boosting the yields of subsequent crops and helping to control annual ryegrass... Working with seven grower groups in the southern region, the project aims to examine the productivity and financial implications of growing pulse or brassica crops in various combinations and under different management in a cereal-based cropping system... Farmers, researchers and agronomists are going head-to-head in a challenge to see who can make the most money from growing pulses in the crop sequence..

The name Helicoverpa refers to two species of moth, the larvae of which attack field crops in the northern grains region of Australia... Helicoverpa armigera is generally regarded as the more serious pest because of its greater capacity to develop resistance to insecticides, its broader host range, and the fact that it persists in cropping areas from year to year, whereas H. punctigera numbers fluctuate from year to year based on conditions in its inland breeding areas... Helicoverpa armigera attacks all crops but is less common in wheat and barley...
