consecutive cereal crop

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The project was designed to provide information about the ability of biserrula ( Biserrula pelecinus) pastures to contribute to grain production systems in the medium and low rainfall wheatbelt areas of Western Australia... Pasture crop rotation trials demonstrated that biserrula and its rhizobia are capable of persistence through at least three consecutive cereal crops, allowing farmers to crop more frequently and still retain legume dominant pastures... Further work is required to identify what appears to be a secondary plant compound in biserrula that can induce photosensitisation in some environmental circumstances...

Consecutive cereal crops can reduce yields.. Dr Roger Lawes from CSIRO and Associate Professor Michael Renton from the University of Western Australia (UWA) developed the model as part of a project funded by the GRDC and the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA)... Dr Lawes says LUSO indicates that growing two consecutive cereal crops without a break crop can cause yield losses of between 10 and 20 per cent, while three or more such crops result in even higher yield penalties...

LUSO was developed by Dr Lawes and Dr Michael Renton of The University of Western Australia's (UWA) School of Plant Biology under a Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) funded project also involving the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA)... Dr Lawes said LUSO showed that yield losses of at least 10 to 20 per cent were commonly incurred when two consecutive cereal crops were grown, with additional losses from three or more consecutive cereals... "When prices for wheat are really high, it may be more profitable in the short-term not to grow a break crop, but you will produce nowhere near the potential yields and there may be long-term ramifications from growing consecutive cereals."..

Stop disease and pest cycles in their tracks with crop checks this harvest.. Growers are being urged to test wheat and barley crops before or at harvest that are showing signs of soilborne diseases and pests - especially fusarium crown rot, rhizoctonia bare patch and root lesion nematodes (RLN)... Crown rot is caused by the soilborne fungus fusarium ( F. pseudograminearum and F. culmorum ), which infects plants at the crown and reduces water supply to the head...
