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...

Field trials undertaken over the last 4 years have investigated various pre-emergence herbicides for brome grass control in wheat... In a recent survey by Fleet and Gill (2008), farmers in low rainfall districts in South Australia and Victoria reported increasing incidence of barley grass in their crops... In the paper we will report results of studies undertaken to develop management strategies for brome and barley grass...

As a consequence of the project UA00060, vital information has been obtained on the seedbank ecology and population dynamics of brome in response to various management strategies developed through on-farm research... Results from the survey of grower paddocks on Yorke (YP) and Eyre Peninsulas (EP) in South Australia (SA) confirmed the species of brome grass infesting cereal crops of southern Australia as Bromus diandrus and Bromus rigidus ... Several studies were undertaken at Roseworthy to investigate the germination behaviour of different populations of brome grass ( B. diandrus and B. rigidus ) collected from sites on YP and EP. Clear differences were shown between species, with populations of B. diandrus germinating at a much faster rate than its close relative, B. rigidus ...

Preliminary results indicate that strategic crop phases of legumes (lupins or vetch) or pasture with Clearfield wheat can significantly reduce brome seed-banks... Use of Sulfonly Urea herbicide Atlantis or tank mixes of Trifluralin & Logran in wheat resulted in poor control of brome grass and caused the seed-bank to rise substantially (2.35 & 2.99 fold)... Indicative of the poor herbicide options available for the control of brome in wheat, this crop type caused a 2.67 fold increase in the brome grass seed-bank...

The GRDC is urging growers to be on the lookout for any weeds that should be controlled by glyphosate but which survive... "This is a huge concern to Australian grain growers because this highly competitive weed has been becoming a major problem in reduced-tillage farming," says Associate Professor Chris Preston, chair of the Australian Glyphosate Sustainability Working Group and leader of the University of Adelaide team that confirmed the result...

BROME GRASS CONTROL SUPPORT: Grain growers challenged with the task of controlling the problematic brome grass are being provided with a new resource to support their weed management strategies... GRDC Southern Regional Panel chair David Shannon says brome grass competing early in wheat at a density of 100 plants per square metre can reduce yields by as much as 30 to 50 per cent. ".. The well-adapted weed has proliferated in the past decade, due to the absence of effective herbicides for its control in cereals, intensification of cropping systems, especially wheat on wheat, and the introduction of conservation tillage," Mr Shannon said.
