Give early seeding technique a dry run.. "Studies supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have shown that, overall, dry seeding will give you an advantage in well managed conservation farming systems, especially in dry years," he said... Dr Minkey said a new GRDC funded project, involving WANTFA, CSIRO and the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), was refining guidelines for successful early sowing, including tips on reducing the risks and increasing profits...

Sowing strategies could boost crop yields on sandy soils.. Research is demonstrating the potential for sowing strategies to significantly improve crop productivity on sandy soils in the southern cropping region... Dr Therese McBeath from the CSIRO in Adelaide (South Australia) and Dr Jack Desbiolles from the University of SA have been involved in a collaborative research effort that has produced new insights for grain growers in areas of low rainfall and sandy soils...

Good opportunity for crop grazing, says consultant.. Research has shown that grain crops that are grazed by sheep should be grazed hard and only for a short period of time... Mr Curtin said his main message to growers was not to put sheep on crops too late, not to leave them there too long, and to only graze long-season varieties...

Farmers have responded by growing more cereals... The action is risky, where herbicide resistant weeds can quickly become a problem and the populations of soil borne diseases such as take all and crown rot may increase in ideal conditions and devastate a cereal crop... The project will deliver an economic framework to help determine appropriate 'rules of thumb' for growers about what crop to grow given current costs and prices, yield expectations for the season, the previous crops grown, weed populations and the presence of disease...

Topic Crown rot: Inoculum loads going into 2006; rotation strategies and impacts; Precision row placement to aid crown-rot management... Driftability of amine formulations The 2,4- D products Surpass and Amicide 625 which were used in the trial are considered to be nonvolatile any drift that is associated with these products will be droplet drift not vapour drift... Fungicides as foliar, seed or fertiliser treatments will play a role in the integrated management of this disease until new varieties with improved resistance become available...

Three top tips to stop crown rot: rotate crops, observe plants for browning at the base of tillers and test stubble and soil... Reducing the risk before planting Reducing inoculum levels is vital to managing crown rot... Do this by visually assessing crown rot levels in a prior cereal crop or have soil/stubble samples analysed by PreDicta B . If crown rot has been identified as a risk in a paddock, there are a number of ways to minimise the risk for the coming season...
