    Monitoring needed to improve wheat aphid knowledge
    Author: David Foxx, 24 Jul 2021

    Researchers are racing to build their knowledge of Russian wheat aphid in southern Australia’s winter cropping cycle. GRDC investment has allowed a team from Cesar Australia and the South Australian Research and Development Institute to assess the behaviour and damage potential of RWA in southern Australia.

  • Novel agronomy enhanced by innovative extension
    Novel agronomy enhanced by innovative extension
    Author: David Foxx, 14 Jul 2021

    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.

  • Precision planting study yields encouraging results
    Precision planting study yields encouraging results
    Author: David Foxx, 18 Apr 2021

    A three-year research project has been exploring the potential benefits of using precision planters in winter cropping programs. Precision planters are seeders designed to isolate individual seeds and place them at a precise spacing and depth within the seed row.

  • Ensuring research excellence for growers
    Ensuring research excellence for growers
    Author: David Foxx, 06 Nov 2020

    A partnership between GRDC and SARDI has facilitated a range of projects that provide innovative research outcomes relevant to South Australia's cropping zones. One of the key focuses of the partnership is a long-running mentoring program for researchers.

  • DNA research to improve inoculation decisions
    DNA research to improve inoculation decisions
    Author: David Foxx, 06 Sep 2020

    A South Australian project will save southern region grain growers time and money when it comes to inoculating their legume crops. The project involved scientists developing an innovative method of quantifying rhizobia in soil using a high-throughput DNA test.

  • Manipulating flowering could reduce wheat yield gap
    Manipulating flowering could reduce wheat yield gap
    Author: David Foxx, 11 Aug 2020

    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.
