Barley grass in a retained stubble system - farm demonstrations

The GRDC Stubble project aims to improve farm profitability while retaining stubble in farming systems on upper Eyre Peninsula (EP). Weed control in stubble retained systems is an issue with reduced herbicide efficacy due to higher stubble loads especially for pre-emergence herbicides. Current farming practices have also changed weed behaviour with later germinating barley grass genotypes now being present in many paddocks on Minnipa Agricultural Centre (MAC) (B Fleet, EPFS Summary 2011, p 177). As a part of the stubble project several MAC farm demonstrations were undertaken in 2014 to address barley grass weed issues including later germinating types and barley grass resistance to Group A herbicides within the farming system. An integrated approach to weed management aimed at lowering the weed seed bank can make use of diverse techniques such as cultivation, stubble burning, in-crop competition using higher sowing rates and possibly row orientation. The seed bank of crop weeds can be reduced within the break phase by hay making, or green or brown manuring. Other techniques used effectively in WA with ryegrass and wild radish have been narrow windrows and chaff carts, however little research has been done on the effectiveness of these approaches with barley grass because of its early shedding of seeds before harvest.

Barley National Variety Trial

The barley National Variety Testing (NVT) is part of a multi crop evaluation program funded by the GRDC and is designed to evaluate barley varieties entering the market that have gone through selection and evaluation within the various national breeding programs. The NVT barley trials are just one source of information on which growers can base management decisions on retention release or adoption of new varieties. Growers must use more than one information source when making significant management decisions in relation to barley varieties.

Bioprime: Impact on Yield, Soil Carbon Accumulation and Nitrogen Use

Trials from over four years are examining different rates and timing of application of Bioprime, a liquid soil amendment which changes soil microbiology. The aim is to relate measured plant growth and yield improvement to changes in microbial populations in the soil around roots, and to show how these changes and different ways of applying nitrogen (N) impact on soil carbon accumulation.
