Extension program to promote best practice principles for identifying and managing soil limitations

Description

The GRDC seeks to help growers identify, understand and where possible to address underlying soil limitations to unlock plant available water to drive greater farm profitability. This investment will be responsible for: • developing resource and extension material; • designing a field based extension activity for growers and advisors; • implementation and delivery of the extension program; and • evaluating the adoption of the extended material and practice change. This extension program will be implemented in the southern and central New South Wales areas of the GRDC Northern Region. All extension material developed may also be used in additional GRDC Northern and Southern Sub-regions.

Optimizing high rainfall zone cropping for profit in the Western and Southern Regions

Description

This proposal is focussed on reducing the gap between current and potential yield in the high rainfall zone. Activity will be targeted at wheat and canola. The high rainfall zone of southern Australia (HRZ) has an annual rainfall of 450-800mm in Western Australia and 500-900 mm in south-eastern Australia, and a growing-season of 7–10 months.

Demonstrating and validating the implementation of integrated weed management strategies to control barley grass in low rainfall zone farming systems

Description

Research into the ecology and control tactics of barley grass has occurred and now this need to be transferred into the development and testing of localised Integrated Weed Management (IWM) strategies. This investment will test localised IWM strategies against barley grass utilising large plot replicated demonstration sites and delivered within key areas of the low rainfall zone.

Commercialisation of HB1 Soybean Varieties

Description

The Australian National Soybean Breeding Program (ANSBP) is a venture comprising GRDC, CSIRO and the NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) who have a common and national goal to work together to maintain a world-leading, cost-efficient soybean breeding program for the benefit of Australian industry. The ANSBP has developed three new soybean Varieties suitable for commercialisation, collectively called the “HB1” Varieties: 1. New Bunya HB1 2. Kuranda HB1 3. Mossman HB1 GRDC, NSW DPI and CSIRO are the co-owners of the intellectual property in the HB1 Varieties. GRDC has been appointed by NSW DPI and CSIRO to act for and on behalf of the co-owners commercialise the HB1 Varieties. GRDC seeks a commercial Licensee to exclusively exploit the HB1 Soybean Varieties in Australia. The successful Tenderer will be responsible for commercialisation of the HB1 Varieties. GRDC is seeking to license exclusive marketing and exploitation rights for all three HB1 Varieties to a single Licensee. Please read the RFT Terms and Conditions attached document for further information.

Grains Pest Advisory Committee (to guide R,D&E, and IRM strategies)

Description

By 2023, GRDC will continue to be informed on areas of invertebrate pest management justifying strategic investment through the delivery of recommendations by the Grains Pest Advisory Committee (GPAC). Preparedness of Australian grain growers against the threats of insecticide resistance will be enhanced by access to and uptake of improved insecticide resistance management strategies for key grains pests.

Increasing the effectiveness of nitrogen fixation in pulses through improved rhizobial strains in the GRDC Northern region

Description

This investment aims to develop improved rhizobial strains and inoculation practices for chickpea, lentil and faba bean in acidic soils of the Western and Northern regions, to complement the recently contracted Southern project (DAS1805-004RTX). Rhizobial screening and N fixation experiments in winter pulses will be coordinated nationally across multiple environments. Identification of desirable traits for selection and research activities including standardised protocols will also be coordinated nationally, including a consistent approach to crop type and rhizobial strains tested. A regionally relevant approach to assess the effect of management practices on N fixation will be applied. Collaboration across the three regional investments, the genebanks and the regional extension projects is essential (see below for project details). The GRDC Western investment PROC<> will include funding for a Post-doctoral position to work across the gene transfer group, the agronomy/N fixation group and the project team of UMU00044 (Identifying low pH tolerance and effective rhizobia for wild Cicer to improve adaptation to acid sandy soils) to enhance the collaboration and understanding of all groups and increase the likelihood of success.

Increasing the effectiveness of nitrogen fixation in pulses through improved rhizobial strains in the GRDC Western region

Description

This investment aims to develop improved rhizobial strains and inoculation practices for chickpea, lentil and faba bean in acidic soils of the Western region. This investment will expand upon a recently contracted Southern project (DAS1805-004RTX) and current Northern region procurement to establish a national program of rhizobium evaluation targeting acid-soils expansion areas across all regions of Australia. Rhizobial screening and N fixation experiments in lentil, chickpea and faba bean will be coordinated nationally across multiple acidic soils environments and will employ standardised trial design and data analysis approaches (SAGI) to enable comparative analysis of regional evaluation data. A national approach is proposed with a view to delivering data that will facilitate development of rhizobial strains that have maximum market penetration and improve knowledge regarding how regional practices impact N-fixation. Collaboration across the three regional investments, the genebank and the regional extension projects is essential. The GRDC welcomes applications from individual organisations and collaborative approaches, which includes a capacity building (Post-Doctoral) focus in horizontal gene transfer. It is anticipated that this element will enhance collaboration with rhizobiologists and increase the likelihood of success.
