Ripper Gauge - Demonstrating the Impact of Deep Ripping Timing

Description

This investment proposes to add three new locations on major soil types within the western areas of the Esperance port zone, that will view two separate timings of ripping side by side within a farming system package to maximise profitability. It is proposed to conduct work at these site for two years to demonstrate the longevity of the benefits to growers.

Improved understanding of genetic diversity for secondary seed dormancy and annual seasonal changes and its impact on canola establishment.

Description

The proposed investment will focus on genetic factors that enhance seedling survival in variable soil moisture conditions in different canola production environments in Australia. Knowledge about the relationship between secondary dormancy in canola seeds and canola establishment will be generated and tools and germplasm developed to provide Australian canola breeders with the resources required to select for genotypes that produce seeds without the capacity for secondary dormancy and consequently poor establishment.

Improving production of grower retained open pollinated canola seed using agronomic management to increase establishment in the MRZ and LRZ of the GRDC Northern Region

Description

The proposed investment will characterise and evaluate agronomic management strategies that improve canola seed germination and vigour in addition to grower practices (seed size, speed of sowing, depth, fertiliser placement) that optimise plant establishment density in medium to low rainfall zones in the GRDC northern region. It will identify optimal management (including but not limited to; growing environment, nutrition, harvest management) of open pollinated canola crops destined for seed production to improve subsequent crop establishment.

Surface and sub-surface runoff systems and their relevance to crop management decision-making in southern coastal areas of WA

Description

The investment is designed to inform growers of possible techniques to reduce surface and sub surface soil water with the intent of managing transient salinity and waterlogging within cropping areas. The gap in information towards management ideas for surface and subsurface water is best addressed through a participatory approach where growers can learn from peers, experts and industry representatives to achieve and plan water management options and improve profitability of these areas. Farmer demonstrations/ trials of different machines, in-season management and engineering solutions will be informed by local growers to capture the opportunity to view practical applications and demonstrations for in-paddock management.
