Grain growers deciding which crop varieties to grow next season can find guidance by accessing the latest National Variety Trials (NVT) results... In 2011, 167 trials - relating to different grain crop types - were conducted in WA, including 44 wheat trials... Log in or register to leave a comment...

Hybrid canola lifts mallee yields.. Improved hybrid genetics are allowing growers in low-rainfall areas to better match nitrogen applications to yield potential in canola crops as the season unfolds... DAFWA Esperance senior research officer Mark Seymour says the results indicated hybrid RR lines could provide opportunities for growers in the region to use low rates of nitrogen at seeding, then monitor the season and add more nitrogen as needed to reach optimal yield...

Variety trials sow the way to cropping profits.. "Not only did this analysis indicate a large difference in margin, it also showed that in some regions selecting a wheat variety classified Australian Hard (AH) rather than Australian Prime White (APW) was costing growers income," Mr Giles said... "NVT Online is regularly reviewed and improved; in the past 12 months visits to the website have increased by about 28 per cent and page use has increased by 15 per cent compared with the previous year," Mr Giles said...

Aphid damage to canola - not all cultivars are equal Fran oise A. Berlandier and Christiaan Valentine, Department of Agriculture, Western Australia.. Oil concentration can be increased either by increasing the amount of oil or by reducing the amount of protein and/or residue in the seed... On a seed basis, there is an amount of protein already in the seed before oil accumulation begins (Hocking and Mason 1993)...

The choice of most suitable canola variety for any situation will often follow a consideration of maturity, herbicide tolerance, blackleg resistance and early vigor together with relative yield and oil content... Bred and marketed by Pacific Seeds... Expected release in 2013, bred by Cargill and DPI-Victoria, marketed by Cargill (AWB), in closed loop program...

Agronomy packages close yield gaps.. Matthew Gardner, NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) research agronomist, Tamworth says the Variety Specific Agronomy Packages (VSAP) project is using trial results from 2008-12 to guide growers... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is supporting the project which covers a wide spectrum of agronomic areas, including Plant Growth Regulators (PGRs) and lodging management; delayed harvest; nitrogen management in barley; wheat Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE); and time of sowing new varieties...

Some growers are concerned canola breeding companies are winding down the development of new open-pollinated (OP) canola varieties.. To continue developing new OP varieties, canola breeders say they need growers to support the end point royalty (EPR) system, which requires the correct variety of canola to be declared when the grain is sold.. Many growers - particularly those in medium to low-rainfall environments who still want to grow OP canola - are understandably concerned that canola breeding companies may no longer release new OP varieties...

Dual purpose canola would provide an excellent break crop for winter cereals in the high rainfall zone, and potentially improve the profitability and flexibility of mixed farming operations... The final biomass and yield of the canola in the grazed and un-grazed areas was measured from two hand harvested quadrats (1.08 m x 0.4 m) taken at physiological maturity in each plot and oil content measured using NMR. Results Seasonal conditions The years 2004 to 2006 experienced dry autumn conditions and irrigation was required to establish the experiments (Table 1)... Biomass removed by grazing, and the impact of grazing on yield and oil for three canola varieties at Ginninderra Experiment Station, 2004...
