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.
Establishing a healthy and productive orchard requires planning and preparation. You must first select a mango variety and then its propagation method.
Mango fruit produced in the Perth area is seasonally the latest in Australia and receives high prices in WA and interstate.
Nitrogen (N) deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in wheat.
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
DDLS Seed Testing and Certification is a leading service provider in the field of seed certification.
Using tillage to incorporate lime improves the rates of reaction and increases subsurface pH sooner than spreading lime on the surface alone.
DDLS Seed Testing and Certification offers a wide range of tests to assess the quality of your seed.
Do our current wheat varieties need different management to get the best performance from them.
At Yuna, frost in September affected grain yield and quality of the short maturity varieties but not the longer maturing varieties Magenta and Calingiri.
The challenge in low rainfall areas is to understand the influence of management on the genetic difference of varieties.
The mean site yield was 1.4t/ha and there was no difference in yield between Mace and Hydra wheat.
The following information is a summary of the presentation 'Farm machinery – understanding the true cost and getting the best value out of machinery' delivered by department economists at the 2015
This trial looked at plant density in low rainfall canola.
This trial investigated options for improving production from retained, hybrid and open pollinated canola seed; grading harder, buying new seed, increasing the seed rate, mixing retained and new se
The Ord River Irrigation Area (ORIA) is suitable for growing bananas.
Tissue culture is the best method for propagating bananas. It ensures they are true to type and free from pests and diseases.
Higher banana plant densities are used in the Ord River Irrigation Area than other growing areas to modify canopy microclimates.
For bananas on the Ord River Irrigation Area, length of time to emergence and harvesting depend on air temperature, planting time and sucker management.
Most canola had acceptable losses prior to harvest, even with delayed harvest. The greatest proportion of losses occurred at harvest.
