    Unending innovation drives cropping progress

    GRDC is driving research to deliver innovative new crop traits and information for growers to make successful sowing decisions

  • Ground-truthing long coleoptile wheats
    Cereals, 28 Jul 2021
    Ground-truthing long coleoptile wheats

    Long coleoptile wheats are being regionally tested to provide agronomic and farming systems guidelines for growers to use to improve wheat production under a changing climate and increased enterprise size.

  • Are long coleoptile wheats an early sowing game-changer?

    Are long coleoptile wheats an early sowing game-changer?

    Changing climate and increasing enterprise size are driving the need for new plant traits that maximise yield potential under these changing conditions. The long coleoptile trait is one example.

  • Novel agronomy enhanced by innovative extension

    Novel agronomy enhanced by innovative extension

    A novel means of 'resetting' wheat development is being explored to manipulate flowering time. In concert with the research, innovative methods of extending the information to growers are being tested.

  • Phenology fundamentals to optimise wheat yield
    Cereals, 10 Jul 2021
    Phenology fundamentals to optimise wheat yield

    Key lessons have been delivered by a southern NSW collaborative project to guide decision-making to better match wheat varieties to cropping environments: understand the phenology of commercial wheat varieties, use the right variety for the right sowing date and remain disciplined with sowing dates.

  • New benchmark for spring-sown barley
    Cereals, 07 Jul 2021
    New benchmark for spring-sown barley

    Experimental trials have shown the potential for spring-sown barley to yield more than 10 tonnes per hectare in Tasmania. This is the finding of a national trial program spanning five states as part of the GRDC-invested hyper-yielding crops (HYC) project, led by Field Applied Research (FAR) Australia.

  • Trials to dive deep into moisture-seeking wheats
    Cereals, 20 Apr 2021
    Trials to dive deep into moisture-seeking wheats

    The development of ‘long coleoptile’ genetics that allows wheat to access moisture deep in the soil has attracted strong interest from growers looking to maximise yields in a warming and drying climate.

  • Moves to secure oats’ food status
    Cereals, 16 Mar 2021
    Moves to secure oats’ food status

    A GRDC-supported project aims to improve oat agronomy and evaluate domestically and internationally sourced germplasm. The project comes as Australia boosts its international oats markets.

  • New efforts to raise oat productivity and value
    Cereals, 02 Feb 2021
    New efforts to raise oat productivity and value

    Research to develop higher-yielding varieties that also tolerate disease better is being undertaken to meet growing Asian demand for Australian milling oats

  • Designer root systems to maintain durum wheat yields in drought
    Cereals, 30 Jan 2021
    Designer root systems to maintain durum wheat yields in drought

    To help meet strong international demand for Australia’s premium durum wheat, new research has identified genetic solutions to maintain yields during drought.
