GRDC Grains Research Update (North Star)
Keep updated on the latest developments in grains research at the North Star GRDC Grains Research Update. Leading-edge research that’s farm ready for the North West slopes and plains.
- Farming systems research – new data from trials at Narrabri & Billa Billa: Gross margins and $ return/mm water from different systems. Also; issues for sequencing cotton in dryland production systems. Andrew Erbacher, DAF Qld and Jon Baird, NSW DPI
- Impact of different summer crops on soil water extraction and subsequent fallow efficiency. Lindsay Bell, CSIRO

- How compatible are stripper fronts with weed seed collection at harvest?
- Robots armed with lasers controlling weeds?
- Where is microwave and strategic tillage research up to?
