2017 is likely to be a challenging growing season for many agricultural businesses across the grainbelt.

Widespread summer rainfall, which provided good stored moisture levels, has been followed by patchy autumn rainfall, particularly in the north east of the region.

WA horticulture industries are well positioned to capture the growing demand and opportunities in the overseas market. However knowing the strength and weakness of each industry and addressing the issues is important in capitalising on this opportunity.

Protecting WA Crops Issue 3 June 2017

Inside this edition: Aphids, WA's insect problem children

Each month the Protecting WA Crops eNewsletter will focus on a single topic to provide you with comprehensive information that will help you to protect WA grain crops from these threats.

If you have bare paddocks or patches, you may be considering reseeding your canola. In open pollinated crops that have less than 10-15 plants/m2, but otherwise a high potential yield, tickling in extra seed may be worthwhile.

Seasonal Climate Outlook June 2017

The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia’s Statistical Seasonal Forecast (SSF) system is indicating below median rainfall for the majority of the South-West Land Division (which includes the wheatbelt) for winter (June to August) and June to October 2017.

Yield potential of crops emerging in June can still be reasonable depending on location and seasonal conditions.

Delayed sowing (especially into June) can have a significant impact on yield potential compared to crops sown into moist soil in May.
