Molecular breeding tools are being developed to tap the adaptive diversity of lupins' wild relatives.. "Breeders recall a story about a 'lupine dinner' held in Hamburg in 1918 (by the Association for Applied Botany) that captures the breadth of lupin's versatility and the reason that Germany spearheaded efforts to domesticate lupins," Dr Nelson says. ".. WA today dominates world production of commercial lupins...

There is simply nothing in the domesticated gene pool that can provide in-between flowering times... During 2014, a breakthrough was made in Dr Nelson's laboratory by a 22-year-old GRDC undergraduate honours student, Candy Taylor, who at the time was completing the fourth year of a genetics and breeding undergraduate course at the University of WA... "In early-flowering plants that do not require vernalisation to flower, the FTc1 (flowering-time) gene was expressed at high levels at all times and throughout the plant," Ms Taylor says...

Industry cultivates career paths for young agronomists.. A Sydney University agricultural science graduate, Emily spent last year conducting research into windrow burning's impact on fallow soil moisture in central western NSW as part of a Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) funded Undergraduate Honours Scholarship... Her thesis research was undertaken in conjunction with the Grain Orana Alliance (GOA) - a GRDC-funded grower solutions group that aims to provide practical answers to current and emerging issues challenging grain producers in the central west and western plains regions of NSW...

Drought tolerance genes to provide spring protection.. The ARC Centre of Plant Energy Biology at Australian National University has identified genes which influence how plants cope under moisture stress... "In years when the rainfall outlook is marginal, or our subsoil moisture is not ideal, having varieties with the ability to tolerate moisture stress will give us a lot more confidence to go ahead and plant."..

Products may be identified by proprietary or trade names to help readers identify particular types of products but this is not, and is not intended to be, an endorsement or recommendation of any product or manufacturer referred to... While it is obvious that Australia's economy no longer rides on the sheep back the significant contribution the sheep industry makes as a proportion of Agricultural and total exports highlights the importance of both the wool and lamb industry and in turn why the declining national flock and continuity of supply problems need to be addressed... The sheep industry generally has been relatively slow in adopting these techniques, and we now, as a result, have the advantage of learning from the mistakes of other industries...
