    Region: National, 01 Aug 2021

    Wheat growers are being urged to monitor the effectiveness of fungicides this season after the common wheat disease, Septoria tritici blotch, was discovered to be resistant to Group 11 fungicides (strobilurins).

  • Workshops to offer insights into soil-borne diseases
    Workshops to offer insights into soil-borne diseases
    Region: National, 31 Jul 2021

    Soil-borne diseases are a significant constraint to farm profitability in Australia costing wheat growers alone an estimated $521 million annually in lost production, according to research by GRDC.

    Unending innovation drives cropping progress
    Region: National, 29 Jul 2021

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

  • Ground-truthing long coleoptile wheats
    Ground-truthing long coleoptile wheats
    Region: National, 28 Jul 2021

    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?
    Region: National, 26 Jul 2021

    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.

  • Exotic pest a ‘miner’ issue for the grains industry?
    Exotic pest a ‘miner’ issue for the grains industry?
    Region: National, 25 Jul 2021

    Serpentine leafminers are a serious threat to crops that rely on the visual appearance of their foliage for market acceptance and can significantly impact yields for crops like potatoes, but are they a threat to grain crops?

  • Paddock maps track Jack Frost
    Paddock maps track Jack Frost
    Region: National, 23 Jul 2021

    A new model-based system developed by CSIRO researchers enables growers to map frost movement over paddocks. Minimum temperature maps of paddocks offer the chance to bring damaging frost episodes into clearer focus on a farm scale.
