The Crop Sowing Guide for Western Australia is a one stop shop for variety information on all the major crops grown in Western Australia.
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.
In 2020 the Department is conducting over 300 Grains Research trials across the state from Kununurra in the north to Esperance in the south.
This page hosts the 2018 frost trial information, handy project resources and the frost severity maps (from August).
This project aims to determine the spread of emerging summer weeds and deliver new knowledge on the biology and management of these emerging summer and winter weeds, with an overall aim of increasi
Rhizoctonia patches can be easily identified by both normal and NDVI images captured by UAV.
The viability of annual ryegrass seed can be reduced substantially by desiccation, pre-harvest spraying or swathing of canola depending on the product and timing.
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?
