Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, 60-70 per cent of flour is used in traditional flat breads, 20-25 per cent of flour is used in western style breads and 5-10 per cent is used in cakes and biscuits... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil...

The reliability of chickpea production entered a new era today with the release of a new variety that promises to deliver superior disease resistance and standability... The release of the new desi variety, PBA Seamer, was announced by New South Wales Minister for Primary Industries, Lands and Water, Niall Blair and Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) northern panel chair James Clark today at the AgQuip Field Days at Gunnedah... Mr Clark said PBA Seamer (CICA 0912) offered superior disease resistance to existing varieties PBA HatTrick and PBA Boundary, with the potential to deliver valuable yield benefits in high-pressure disease years...

Most chickpea cultivars grown by farmers in Mediterranean and Australian environments are susceptible to ascochyta blight, affected by terminal drought, susceptible to vegetative and flowering stage cold... Sources of resistance for Ascochyta blight, drought, and Fusarium wilt identified in the first phase of the project were introgressed into Australian adapted cultivars... To enhance the knowledge and accelerate the process of developing new chickpea varieties possessing tolerance/resistance to these traits, seeds of three recombinant inbred (RI) populations for drought, Fusarium wilt and cold tolerance have been increased...

Research harvests that set the future.. A team led by lentil breeder Dr Michael Materne and technical officer Steve Murden harvested pulse trials, including new varieties of Ascochyta blightresistant chickpeas that will progressively be released commercially over coming seasons... After virtually being wiped out in southeastern Australia in the late 1990s, researchers believe the new varieties will allow chickpeas to again play an important and profitable role in the southern region"s crop cycles...

Researchers are questioning the merits of early sowing of chickpeas in Central West NSW after trial results show the practice may not result in higher yields despite earlier flowering... Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) district agronomists, Leigh Jenkins, Warren and Rohan Brill, Coonamble told growers at the recent Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Updates the disease risk and the impact of low temperatures on flowering may undermine yield benefits... Disease and frost damage are the two major constraints to chickpea production in the northern cropping region and in both cases sowing date can influence yield through avoidance of cold temperatures during flowering, and to reduce the effect of disease, Ms Jenkins said...
