The continuous cropper, who has properties 50 kilometres east of Pingelly and 30km east of Corrigin, says towing a chaff cart has helped reduce the ryegrass seedbank... At east Pingelly in 2010, several barley paddocks sown close to 22 April went on to average 2.5 tonnes a hectare, whereas those planted around 24 May averaged 1.5t/ha. ".. Lance waits for clear weather and a light breeze before setting fire to the wheat dumps at about 4.30pm. He says this is important to help to prevent willy-willies from picking up sparks and moving them to surrounding paddocks...

An agronomic research program that can enhance the release of new barley varieties for Western Australia... In the study we aim to quantify the benefit of the current Alt gene and undertake a 'proof of concept' study to see if the inclusion of this Alt gene in future releases might influence the way in which we grow barley... Preliminary results indicate grazing control..

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...

A disease control model for crown rot in Victoria and South Australia (SA) which provides crop management recommendations to reduce the build-up of Fusarium inoculum and avoid sowing into high disease risk situations... Crown rot is highly spatially variable, so intensive and extensive sampling programs were undertaken to assess the the reliability of results produced using current sampling protocols... Intensive stubble and soil sampling was used to assess the scale of spatial variability of crown rot and whether taking soil cores in a row crop was causing "spikes" in results...

KEY POINtS A break crop is any crop used to provide diversity to help reduce disease, weed and pest levels in a paddock... Recent research has shown that Pythium root rot increases under canola and pulse crops but declines under cereal crops, despite being hosted by all crops...

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...
