Research shows cabbage aphids living on the edge.. "The new research clearly suggests that infestation of racemes occurs later in the growing season, and that in the weeks prior, the same canola plants host cabbage aphids feeding on leaves in the bottom of the canopy," Mr Severtson said... Mr Severtson said that in some years, cabbage aphids and other species such as turnip aphids could cause widespread damage in late winter and spring by feeding on growing canola shoot tips, causing wilting, flower abortion and reduced pod set...

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki at the WA Agribusiness Crop Updates... The 'Paleo diet' claims that humans had fully evolved before the advent of agriculture foods such as dairy, grains, legumes or processed oils are detrimental... Humans have actually done a lot of evolving in the past 12,000 years, plus we can't eat what our Palaeolithic ancestors ate because a lot of it isn't around any more," Dr Karl said...

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...

The farms which work on high volume mostly use conventional methods with some alternative practices used such as green manure crops, cover crops and composted material... Their conventional production system uses holistic methods to ensure sustainable agriculture, including practices like compost at 4-5 tonnes per hectare per year spread over the fields, and six-year rotations as a minimum for vegetables... Many of the businesses using conventional methods realised the importance of soil health and the need to improve their soils to maintain current production...
