    Useful guides to boost crop potential

    To help growers make informed cropping decisions, GRDC has invested in several guides which are available from the GRDC website.

  • Search for tools to lift high-rainfall yields

    Search for tools to lift high-rainfall yields

    Preliminary results for barley from the Hyper Yielding Crop project in Western Australia indicate yield could be boosted through sourcing more appropriately adapted varieties.

  • Improved sowing date data to lift crop potential
    Cereals, 16 Aug 2021
    Improved sowing date data to lift crop potential

    A seamless phenology pipeline is being developed by GRDC to deliver customised sowing dates for varieties to improve crop productivity. It is the collective effort of local and international researchers.

  • Unending innovation drives cropping progress

    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?
    Cereals, 26 Jul 2021
    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
    Cereals, 14 Jul 2021
    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.
