Much of the Western Australia's wheatbelt has experienced a very dry 2018–2019 summer leaving very little stored moisture at present (DPIRD, May seasonal report 2019). Yield potential varies signif
A new guide has been published to assist cereal growers to identify frost damage and consider crop management decisions.
Taking experimental measurements can be labour intensive and time consuming, in addition the methods chosen must be repeatable (regardless of operator) with small degrees of error.
The term 'residual' applies to a number of herbicides that have a long lasting activity in the soil. These herbicides are often applied directly to the soil prior to planting crops, pre-emergent.
In 2020 the Department is conducting over 300 Grains Research trials across the state from Kununurra in the north to Esperance in the south.
Plant available water (PAW) is a key determinant of potential yield in dryland agriculture.
This page hosts the 2018 frost trial information, handy project resources and the frost severity maps (from August).
How late is too late to sow canola? What is the yield penalty from time of sowing (TOS) or late sowing? What is the estimated yield loss from delayed sowing of canola in WA?
Testing for herbicide susceptibility allows you to determine what herbicide options are still available to control weeds on your farm.
When selecting a wheat variety to implement in a farming system, it is important to be aware of the variety's disease package to plan management options. The disease resistance ratings for wheat va
