Locusts then migrate on prevailing weather systems, invading adjacent agricultural areas, including those in southern Queensland... The ability of locusts to invade previously uninfested areas and lay eggs within days, combined with the mobility of flying swarms, makes swarm control particularly difficult for individual landholders... The Australian Plague Locust Commission (APLC) will implement control measures only where the commission considers the locusts to be in sufficient numbers to present an interstate threat...

One of the first things I realised from my study is that many factors cannot be measured in just one season, but take a number of years to realise the economic difference... Green manure crops have a huge benefit and we can use them without losing a full year of production, perhaps a crop of oats and rye sown in early autumn could be desiccated or cultivated and a summer crop could be sown in spring... Agribusiness companies: Like I mentioned above, the government has little to do with infrastructure, particularly in Agriculture...

New funding for the world's agricultural genebanks aims to strengthen their ability to manage both conflict and natural disasters... The seedbanks, managed under the CGIAR program for managing and sustaining crop collections, house the world's largest and most diverse collections of wheat, maize, rice, potato, banana, sorghum, forages, beans and many other food plants... "With climate change greatly intensifying demands on plant breeders to develop new heat, drought and flood-tolerant crops, it is important for the samples conserved in the CGIAR's genebanks to be readily accessible and in optimal condition," says slaug Marie Haga, incoming executive director of the Global Crop Diversity Trust.

Lake Bolac workshop to explore summer crop options.. The "Making Money From Summer Rainfall" technical workshop at the Lake Bolac Bush Nursing Centre will explore summer forage and summer grain cropping options for the HRZ... The workshop will feature a line-up of expert speakers who will also discuss spring-sown winter canola, utilising summer fallow soil moisture, crop nutrition for forage crops, agronomic management and how to successfully incorporate fodder and grain crops into a farming system," said Mr Midwood, who is also chief executive of Southern Farming Systems (SFS)...

Very high mineral fertiliser prices have encouraged farmers to increase nitrogen levels in the soil with legume crops, reducing or excluding the need for nitrogen fertilisers in following crops... More agronomic research needs to be carried out on: nitrogen fixation at different crop stages, and investigation of different varieties and advanced breeding lines to determine if there are differences in nitrogen fixation rates herbicides for broadleaf weed control herbicide and other management options for herbicide resistant grass weeds seeding times and seeding rates for current varieties in different areas vetch production for grain and hay with and without nitrogen fertilisers... The project will include the two main vetch species, common vetch ( Vicia sativa ) and hairy vetch ( Vicia villosa )...

The project investigated a forage crop year prior to the crop phase, and 'within crop' strategies, to improve weed management in organic and conventional grain production... The project results have shown that incorporation of a forage crop between pasture and crop phases can significantly improve weed management and improve grain yields to both organic and conventional producers... The project has shown that cropping intensity on organic farms is largely governed by market signals, but the management of weeds, especially in a second crop year, influenced the level of cropping intensity...
