New grain harvesters can cost in excess of $500 000; so the costs of ownership are substantial. Should a farmer always own their harvesting gear? What are the alternatives?
The Crop Sequence Calculator is an online tool to compare crop sequence options. The tool is based on trial results and historic data from Western Australia.
MySoil is a simple diagnostic tool designed to improve identification of soil types.
Confident identification of soil compaction to restrict crop or pasture growth uses diagnosis combining visual symptoms of plant, root and soil features.
Lupin species were present in Western Australia as early as the 1850s. They initially spread on uncultivated land and were thought to have little value.
Lupins are a critical component of a uniquely Western Australian farming system, the wheat:lupin rotation.
Brome grass (Bromus diandrus and B. rigidus) is one of the most competitive grass weeds in wheat.
Soil wetting agents reduce the effects of repellence by lowering the surface tension of the water which improves infiltration.
Furrow sowing forms micro-relief, small ridges and furrows, into which water can be harvested.
Water repellence develops when there is an accumulation of hydrophobic organic substances in a susceptible soil. Hydrophobic compounds are derived from plant and microbial sources.
