Crown rot caused by Fusarium pseudograminearum affects all cereals, but durum crops are particularly susceptible... Closed canopy break crops and fallow are most effective at reducing crown rot... Expertise and results from DAS00032 are being used to assist in developing a pilot spreadsheet...

Grain growers across New South Wales and Queensland are being reminded to follow updated sampling techniques when assessing the risk of disease threats including crown rot and root lesion nematodes... Crown rot is caused by the fungus Fusarium pseudograminearum and is one of the most serious disease threats to winter cereal crops in Australia... DNA-based soil test PreDicta B is recognised as a reliable technique for identifying the level of risk for crown rot, and other soil-borne pathogens within paddocks prior to sowing...

Crown rot remains a threat under irrigation.. Cotton growers moving into irrigated grain production are being warned to manage the damaging cereal disease crown rot, which can cause major yield losses when moisture stress occurs during grain fill... Losses to crown rot can be dramatically reduced in irrigated crops by a range of management options and carefully considering the scheduling of water to limit moisture stress during grain fill."..

The paper will discuss mungbeans and soybeans as summer crop options for the central west region of NSW. Topics will include rotational fit and suitability to soil types, sowing decisions, and key management issues to produce a profitable crop in a short time... Actual seeding rates should be calculated for the required plant population based on seed size, germination and estimated establishment percentages... By mid January yield potential declines by 30% and other crops are preferred...

Monitoring and mapping to beat frost.. "We need to be well informed, as we only have a two-week window after a frost to decide if we will mow the crop or harvest it," Paul says... In 2012, using GRDC funding, Paul mapped and analysed specific areas on the farm that were regularly affected by frost using remote digital multispectral image maps (with two-metre pixel resolution) and then overlaying this data onto dual electromagnetic (EM) and gamma-radiometric (GR) soil data maps that had been collected in previous years...

Graze and retain stubble for profit.. Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) trials in the north are answering growers' questions about stubble management in no-till and zero-till controlled traffic farming systems in southern NSW... Part of the GRDC flagship stubble initiative, Maintaining Profitable Farming Systems with Retained Stubble, the past six years of trials conducted by FarmLink Research and CSIRO at Temora have shown that grazing and retaining stubble (not burning) is the most profitable treatment, conserving water, speeding up nitrogen (N) cycling and reducing N tie-up by the stubble...

Take home message PBA HatTrick performed well in 2009 with commercial yields of 1.0 to 2.2 t/ha HatTrick's Ascochyta rating (MR/R) was confirmed in 2009 trials at Tamworth.. HatTrick's quicker development (10 days earlier to flower) contributed to its lower yield - flowers and pods aborted by low temperatures, estimated by the grower to have reduced yield by 30%... In spite of discrepancies between 2007 and 2008, the results confirm that HatTrick has useful (but by no means complete) resistance to phytophthora...

The percentage of growers using some no-till reflected in the figures may not reflect the percentage of no-till adoption observed at the time... Overall, a vast majority of growers also expected the no-till systems to result in less soil erosion... While users and non-users generally did not have differences in beliefs about the likelihood of herbicide resistance or higher herbicide costs, overall, it was more common for no-till users to expect less weed emergence under no-till with stubble retention systems...
