Uncertainty about the effects of rising atmospheric CO 2 levels on crop growth, water use, grain yield and quality led to field experiments being conducted in the Australian grain belt to obtain data on the response of wheat crops to elevated carbon dioxide levels... The collaborative project between the Victorian Department of Primary Industries (Vic DPI) and the University of Melbourne (UM) delivered a national Free Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (FACE) facility consisting of a core of 8 x 12 m rings at Horsham, supplemented by a smaller system at Walpeup (Mallee), within a region of strategic importance to the grains industry... The results from this type of research can inform crop breeders about traits responsive to eCO 2 and provide them with information to improve future lines of wheat...

The focus for the now named Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) will continue to be on strategic and applied research aimed at minimising the adverse impacts of herbicide resistance and weed problems on Australian cropping... To achieve the national focus, there will be collaboration with the Department of Agriculture and Food in Western Australia, the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) in Queensland and the Universities of Melbourne and Adelaide... The new research program extends from agronomic techniques for the management of crop weeds through to fundamental research on the molecular and genetic factors determining herbicide resistance evolution...

The collaboration will enable Syngenta and InterGrain to develop innovative varieties and solutions that will help barley producers globally to increase productivity and reduce costs... Under the agreement, InterGrain will be responsible for all breeding in Australia using both InterGrain and Syngenta germplasm, while Syngenta will gain exclusive rights to commercialise new InterGrain barley varieties and rights to commercialise existing InterGrain varieties outside Australia... InterGrain's acting chief executive officer, Tress Walmsley, says InterGrain has been actively seeking an alliance with a global bioscience technology company to expand its breeding program and deliver more rapid improvements in barley variety performance...

Some of the researchers from the More Profit from Crop Nutrition phase II project who recently met in Perth: (from left) Margaret Roper from CSIRO, Liam Ryan and Ross Brennan from DAFWA, Professor Zed Rengel from UWA, Roger Lawes and Elliot Duncan from CSIRO, Kelly Ryan and Craig Scanlan from DAFWA, and Louise Barton from UWA... The GRDC's More Profit from Crop Nutrition phase II program (MPCN II) aims to help growers optimise returns from fertiliser and nutrition investments by improving: the nutrient-use efficiency of crops through plant breeding; the capacity of soils to free-up and supply nutrients; the match between N, P, K, S and micronutrient applications and crop needs; and fertiliser and adjuvant product formulation and design... Researchers from the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA), the University of Western Australia (UWA), Murdoch University and CSIRO are collaborating on 26 key national projects through MPCN II...

Pulse breeding programs still use rudimentary methods to develop new commercial varieties... The project has demonstrated the value of digital image analysis as a high throughput technology to determine physical seed traits in pulse grains... In the course of this project, algorithms have been developed based on seed image data to determine physical seed characteristics including seed size (length, width and height)...

Economic: In the project, a number of lines were assessed or selected with higher grain and hay yields than present varieties in areas of 330 to 500 mm/yr of rainfall... Lamb feeding experiments using Morava and Rasina (< 0.65% toxin in grain), showed extremely good growth... Project results showed 54 kg, 98 kg and 145 kg/ha were fixed after vetch for grain, hay and green manure, respectively...

The trials offer the only direct comparison between lines from the two main global cereal and pulse breeding centres, CIMMYT and ICARDA.. The subsequent data and the seed resulting from this testing is crucial to the continuing development of Australian wheat, durum, barley and chickpea industries.. The CAIGE tour team 2015 hits the road: (from left) Dr Karim Ammar (Borlaug Global Rust Initiative), Dr Amer Dababat (CIMMYT), Dr Wuletaw Tadesse (ICARDA), Dr Suchismita Mondal (CIMMYT), Dr Hans Braun (Consortium Research Program on Wheat) and Professor Richard Trethowan (Plant Breeding Institute)...
