The Podguard line AN14R9012 appears to be a viable option for direct harvesting and delayed harvesting of canola.
In the trial series at Grass Patch, Ballidu, Merredin and Holt Rock, the highest grain yields, oil and gross margins were from the open pollinated variety, so growers should continue to use open po
This trial investigated if row spacing and seeding rate in Albus lupins had an impact on fungal disease.
Because of the dry conditions fungal disease were not evident.
