The project has achieved significant advances in relation to the development of the International Crop Information System (ICIS) to allow implementation by Australian wheat breeding programs... Establishment of a help facility (telephone, email, web) to assist breeders implement and manage ICIS... The work aims to integrate both genotypic and phenotypic data, but in such a complex population this requires some innovative approaches...

The new technology offers farmers a massive opportunity for accessing information in their own time and in their own way and for minimising time duplication jobs such as data entry... There is a vast amount of applications (apps) and information out there so generally only the highest rated and low cost (or in some cases the only) sites are included in this paper... Twitter is also now commonly used by emergency management organisations to quickly spread messages about emergency events...

Under this suite of projects, UQ00040 was responsible for the collation, storage and dissemination of data and other information related to the introduction and testing of CIMMYT bread wheat germplasm in Australia... Information is now disseminated rapidly to all partner organisations, meaning that this information can be used to help direct breeding, selection and research decisions as soon as possible after the data are generated by the project or the project partners in Australia and CIMMYT... In October, during the project meeting at Cobbitty, the UQ presentation highlighted how the project's expectation to increase efficiency and cooperation between the breeding programs in Australia and CIMMYT is being achieved through the CAGE website...

The Weed Seed Wizard was developed in WA and is being brought to Queensland and NSW with support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... Mr Congreve says Weed Seed Wizard can be fine-tuned to individual farms using local weather data, soil type and management options... "The Weed Seed Wizard can help advisers understand and predict the impact of weed management decisions on crop yield and weed seedbanks."..

WhopperCropper is a simple software tool that facilitates simulation-aided discussion of growers exposure to risk when comparing different management options... Farmers in all regions of Australia endure widely varying rainfall conditions while needing to make critical management decisions prior to every cropping season... WhopperCropper: takes high-tech crop modelling and climate science from the research realm to field application quantifies the effects of different crop input options and pre-existing soil and water resources allows exploration of the effect of the SOI phase and how it interacts with other management inputs provides a high-quality graphing capability of the scenarios for use with grower meetings and timely publications allows the expression of the range of outcomes in terms of gross margins...

A great deal of the success of smartphones comes down to apps, those nifty, intuitive little pieces of software that turn a phone into something much more than a phone... From apps that will advise welder settings, to apps that will identify weeds, apps that will recommend sprayer settings, apps for measuring the area of your paddock, apps that provide a parts diagram for machinery, through to apps that provide a full record-keeping suite for your business... Many people would look at this list and think there is nothing new in the information that these apps are offering, and to a large extent that is true...

Agri-Science Queensland researchers are helping producers adapt to change with industry-specific software... Researchers have developed a software package that is helping Queensland farmers plan for their future... The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) is applying APSFarm working in collaboration with mixed grain and grazing farmers from Central Queensland, Western Queensland, dry land cropping farmers from Central Queensland, and South East Queensland, and irrigated cotton growers from Southern Queensland, Darling Downs, Central Queensland and Northern New South Wales...
