KEYMESSAGES Incorrect use of phosphine since the 1950s, has led to escalating resistance in stored grain insects which threatens the continued use of phosphine at the farm level... 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... When running a trial it is important to: 1...

The project has illustrated and quantified the historical variability associated with several climate products that are important to the Australian agriculture sector... The best methods for making the project outputs available are to be finalised, but suggestions include: via Climate Kelpie via something similar to, or an extension of, FutureWise working with Econnect Communication (www.econnect.com.au), or a similar company, to liaise with the Climate Champions program to determine which formats and ways of disseminating the information emerging from this project are most useful working directly with the Climate Champions in a similar way to how the Bureau of Meteorology(BoM) Water and the Land (WATL, www.bom.gov.au/watl) products are evaluated against user preferences via 'CliMate' - David Freebairn's 'Climate Analyser' tool... The project has illustrated and quantified, across Australia and for nine targeted grain growing regions, the climate variability that is already experienced and needs to be taken into account as part of climate risk management...

The outcome of the research has been summarised in the book "Managing Frost Risk - A guide for Southern Australian Grains"... The agronomic practices needed to reduce frost risk are summarised in Table 1... As described by Gusta (2007), the process of cold acclimation (where some crops show an increase in freezing tolerance by being exposed to temperatures of less than 8 C) is under genetic control and the genes responsible for the increase in freezing tolerance are regulated by temperature in the field...

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, the production and supply of fertiliser accounted for a large proportion (35%) of the GHG produced from wheat production, and occurred in the pre-farm stage (Table 1)... Overall, constraints have a far smaller effect on heavy soils than on sand plain soils...

Stubble and fallow management are key determinants of survival, infection and yield loss from CR. Burning wheat residue has been promoted as one option for the control of CR... Delaying the onset of stripe rust within a crop is the key to significantly reducing the risk of yield loss to this disease in 2005... Stripe rust specific seed treatments are not required and crops should simply be monitored early for the development of stripe rust and a foliar fungicide applied if severe early infection warrants it...
