Net-type net blotch is a fungal disease that can reduce yield and grain quality of barley crops.
Weather damage in barley is a common problem worldwide including the south coast of Western Australia (WA) where it is associated with the late spring/early summer rains.
This trial examines the positive impact of crop competition, crop type rotation and the mouldboard plough on weed management.
Emu Rock and Corack were lower yielding than Cobra, Mace, Magenta and Wyalkatchem when sown dry and emerging in second week of May. Varieties sown in late May into moist soil were higher yielding.
Nitrogen (N) deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in wheat.
Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) is a seed- and aphid-borne virus that infects narrow-leafed lupins. It can also infect many other broad-leafed plant species.
The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development Diagnostic Laboratory Services (DDLS) - Seed Testing and Certification provides a variety of services including seed testing, crop and
Lupin seeding rates may need to be higher for pasture crops to achieve the same target density as standard crops, as lupin establishment density where crops were sown into perennial grasses was 8-3
Biomass production was greater and distribution of green feed over time wider for the pasture-crop compared to crop only or permanent pasture systems.
Establishing perennial pastures with precision guidance technology provides the opportunity to sow annual crops between perennial rows with tined seeders in future years.
Leaf spot diseases affecting wheat in Western Australia are septoria nodorum blotch, yellow spot and septoria tritici blotch.
Deep sowing to chase moisture can be critical in some seasons to getting crops established early. Wheat varieties differ in their ability to emerge from depth.
DDLS Seed Testing and Certification is a leading service provider in the field of seed certification.
Which cereal or variety is more profitable to grow on wheat or canola stubble? There were nine trials conducted across the wheatbelt in 2014 addressing this issue.
Using tillage to incorporate lime improves the rates of reaction and increases subsurface pH sooner than spreading lime on the surface alone.
This farm biosecurity educational package developed for upper secondary agricultural students consists of a suite of lesson plans with case studies and activities. The content aims to help students
Pea seed-borne mosaic virus (PSbMV) is a seed-borne and aphid-borne virus that causes yield losses and seed quality defects in field pea crops.
Research was conducted into the yield and quality response of long season wheat and barley varieties to a range of sowing times between mid-April and mid-May at Esperance, Katanning and Dandaragan.
