Research funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) shows that early control of fallow weeds can lead to significant increases in the levels of stored plant-available water and increased availability of nutrients (especially nitrogen), benefiting crop yield and grain quality... Mr Cameron, who co-authored the GRDC's Summer Fallow Weed Management manual, said soil water saved by killing fallow weeds was often stored deep in the profile and its value is often far higher than that of in-crop rainfall... In the right soil, deep stored soil water can have a water use efficiency of up to 60 kilograms of grain/millimetre of stored water...

Related research undertaken by WANTFA examined the economic performance of several conservation farming strategies... As a result of research conducted in this project and related research managed by WANTFA, growers can adopt more sustainable farming strategies based on better knowledge of the impacts on the resource base... The specific aim of this research project was to collaborate with WANTFA staff to quantify the water balance impacts of the inclusion of cover crops and higher levels of residue retention...
