    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

    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

    Fortified wheats show promise on sodic soils

    Pre-breeders have developed advanced wheat lines with tolerance to some of the physical and chemical stresses found in areas with alkaline and dispersive subsoils

  • Master list released: what is next for wheat classification?

    Hyper-yield push moves to mainland HRZ

    Growers have the opportunity to host on-farm trials, join networks and participate in awards as part of a new hyper-yielding crops research project. The research effort aims to push the yield boundaries of wheat, barley and canola in high-rainfall cropping areas across five states.

  • Valuable learnings from wheat phenology research

    Valuable learnings from wheat phenology research

    Central Queensland wheat growers can reap a significant yield benefit by identifying the ideal target flowering window for a region and adapting sowing date for particular varieties accordingly.

  • New benchmarks lift yield aspirations

    New benchmarks lift yield aspirations

    The hyper yielding cereals project led by the Foundation for Arable Research (FAR) Australia, in collaboration with Southern Farming Systems, has identified new high performance cereal cultivars and agronomic strategies to lift the productivity and profitability of irrigated feed wheat and barley crops in Tasmania.

  • Manipulating flowering could reduce wheat yield gap
    Cereals, 11 Aug 2020
    Manipulating flowering could reduce wheat yield gap

    A one-year feasibility study has explored alternative options that growers could use to manage their crop’s development – especially flowering time – in order to maximise yields. The research has been one focus of the strategic partnership between GRDC and the South Australian Research and Development Institute.
