Mallee crop sequences influence soil nitrogen, Rhizoctonia and brome grass

The GRDC Low Rainfall Crop Sequencing project is identifying the effects that different break crops and rotations have on Mallee farming systems. Farmers have increasingly adopted continuous cereal cropping strategies as non-cereal crops are perceived as riskier than cereals due to greater yield and price fluctuations. Therefore, it is important to quantify the agronomic benefits that break crops can provide in Mallee cropping rotations so that farmers can be confident of the long term benefits of more diverse crop sequences.

Management of herbicide resistant barley grass in pulse crops

Presence of increased seed dormancy in this grass weed species has enabled it to escape pre-sowing control tactics used by the growers. This explains why barley grass is a problematic weed in cereal crops. However, in some locations like Port Germein and Baroota districts, it has now become largely impossible to control in pulse crops. This islikely due to the presence of group A (fop & dim) herbicide resistance. Currently in these locations barley grass control is reliant on growing Clearfield wheat and the use of imidazolinone (group B) herbicides. This management strategy is at high risk of collapsing from the additional development of group B herbicide resistance. Previous studies have shown that resistance to group B herbicides can develop relatively quickly. Presence of large densities and repeated exposure to group B herbicides could rapidly lead to group B resistance in such barley grass populations. The extent of this resistance needs to be understood and effective management strategies to manage resistant barley grass in pulse crops developed.
