Grains research enters a new era.. The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has begun delivering on its pledge to secure the future viability of grain production in Queensland and New South Wales... With research suggesting that the majority of current farming systems are dramatically underachieving on water use efficiency, the GRDC is co-funding the innovative new project aimed at better understanding how northern farming systems can be improved to boost productivity and profitability...

The potential for changes in soil microbial function for improved productivity through intensive cropping systems were evaluated in this project... A resilience test in which soils are exposed to repeated wet-dry cycles provides a suitable assay to determine changes in the stability of microbial functions... Results from the project demonstrated the likelihood of changes in microbial functions relevant for increased nutrient efficiency and productivity by altering C inputs through the use of intensive cropping systems...
