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
Research to determine the best sowing time for a range of wheat varieties to maximise grain yield and quality across Western Australia’s Wheatbelt will help grain growers make the most of this year
Growers in low rainfall areas with predominantly acidic soils have the potential to increase wheat yields by up to 30 per cent by combining lime and gypsum applications to their soils.
In 2020 the Department is conducting over 300 Grains Research trials across the state from Kununurra in the north to Esperance in the south.
Tertiary students wanting to make their mark on Western Australia’s grains sector are reminded that applications close soon for research and development post-graduate scholarships.
Find out more about frost and canola research at the department’s upcoming frost and canola field day at the Dale research site near Beverley on Thursday 11 October.
Final program confirmed...
Looking at past years of rainfall does not guarantee that the rainfall trend will continue into the future but it can give us some idea of what might happen.
The State Agricultural Biotechnology Centre (SABC) has played a pivotal role in transforming plant breeding for the Western Australian grains industry over the past 25 years.
Powdery mildew has become more prevalent in WA wheat crops over the past few years, particularly late in seasons.
