Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
A prototype Decision Framework model to assist with management of cereal cyst nematode (Heterodera avenae).. Economic relevance can be maintained with this model over time... At high initial CCN levels, multiplication rates are relatively low (Fisher and Hancock, 1991)...

Central Queensland grain growers are targeting more precise management of soil nutrition to bolster farm productivity, following workshops in Capella and Biloela last week... The producers in attendance are participants in the Grains Best Management Practices (BMP) program, an initiative of the Queensland Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), the Fitzroy Basin Association and AgForce Qld, which help producers identify pathways to improving on-farm practices to meet industry standards and improve profitability... The workshops were delivered by Chris Dowling from Back Paddock Company as part of the northern region, Nutrition - Training and Extension project, for the More Profit from Crop Nutrition II (MPCN II) Initiative, supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and DAFF...

Correctly matching soil nutrient needs with fertiliser application can deliver significant production and profitability rewards to growers and will be the focus of an upcoming workshop series in Central Queensland... Soil nutrition workshops supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and delivered by Chris Dowling from Back Paddock Company will be held in Clermont on Tuesday, November 4; Rolleston on Wednesday, November 5; and Banana on Thursday, November 6... The workshops will address a variety of topics including the incorporation of soil testing and tissue sampling into crop nutrition planning, understanding the soil nutrition and physical characteristics of paddocks and managing their variability, and the development of nutrient management budgets for long term soil fertility...

GRDC helps grow profitability through soil biology research.. As part of the disease suppressive soils work, over 130 soils from the northern region were surveyed for the presence of natural enemies to Root Lesion Nematodes (RLN)... Other key findings within the nutrient management work include that minimising fertiliser application at sowing will enhance microbial processing of soil organic N and that molecular tools may be used to assess the mineralisation potential in a wide range of soils...
