Traditionally ANZAC day marked the date on which growers in Western Australia would start dry seeding.
In 2021 the Department is conducting over 300 research trials across the state from Kununurra in the north to Esperance in the south.
The department is a key partner in the Grains Research and Development Corporations' (GRDC) National Frost Initiative (NFI) which aims to provide the Australian grains industry with targeted resear
Lupins should be harvested as soon as they are mature to minimise significant yield loss.
40% lower germination was measured from seed of plants exposed to wetting and drying at maturity.
Frost occurs on clear nights in early spring when the air temperature drops to 2°C or less.
Field research services (FRS) ensures the delivery of timely and efficient technical expertise to implement field research experiments across the Western Australian grainbelt.
Wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) is highly competitive in crops and can cause a yield loss of 10-90%.
