Canola tops break-crop gains.. Canola plantings have continued to increase in Western Australia and local researchers are working collaboratively to fine-tune tactics to help optimise profits from canola and other break crops across the grain belt... CSIRO senior research scientist Dr Roger Lawes says modelling shows that adding a break crop such as canola to continuous cereal rotations can be worth an extra 0.5t/ha of wheat following the break phase...

The National Brassica Pathology Working Group, comprising pathologists, agronomists, chemical companies and canola breeders from across Australia, unilaterally shared concern at a recent meeting in Melbourne that growers would potentially face serious risk of crop failure due to blackleg if attempting to grow canola on canola... Growers are urged not to risk the long-term viability of the canola industry by sowing canola on canola," said Dr Marcroft, on behalf of the National Brassica Pathology Working Group... Dr Marcroft, who has been addressing GRDC grains research Updates in the southern region about the blackleg scenario, says growers can use the Risk Assessor to determine if their paddocks are in a high risk situation, and what practices could be changed to reduce yield loss from blackleg.

The project, together with its sister project based out of Tamworth with New South Wales Agriculture (NSW Ag), has underscored the growing area of canola in the northern grains region... Results from rotation experiments in northern NSW involving canola showed higher yields of wheat following brassica crops than those after either winter cereals or chickpeas, supporting results from southern Australia that the brassica crops are actively controlling cereal diseases... Survey results collected for this project suggest that a major motivation for growers to grow canola is to control problems of root diseases in winter cereals...

Early work on canola focused on weed management strategies including the breeding of herbicide tolerant canola varieties such as triazine tolerant (TT) varieties which now account for an estimated 90% of canola grown in WA... Research is still being conducted to determine the effect of these viruses on the yield of canola in WA. European work has found seed yield losses of 10-15% associated with this virus disease in canola... The amount of air passed through the grain is measured in litres per second per tonne and varies depending on the particular aeration strategy...
