Double breaks – a double shot at annual ryegrass
Mon, 29 May 2017
Short black, long black, double shot, double break? Coffee preference is a little like crop sequences. Perhaps you’re a ‘short black’ wheat-canola type, strong on inputs? Or a ‘long black’ type who likes to dilute their rotations a bit more? Or are you a ‘double shot’, throwing in a few break crops in a row for maximum effect? When it comes to managing annual ryegrass populations, Tony Swan and the research team from CSIRO Plant Industry and FarmLink, have shown that ‘double shots’ are the key. Growing two break crops in sequence (broadleaf crop, hay crop or long fallow) was…
Harvest Weed Seed Control Systems are Similarly Effective on Rigid Ryegrass
Mon, 15 May 2017
Our latest published paper is Harvest Weed Seed Control Systems are Similarly Effective on Rigid Ryegrass by Michael Walsh, Charlotte Aves & Stephen Powles. This field research led by Michael Walsh was in itself a major logistics task. AHRI purchased, with GRDC support, a John Deere combine grain harvester, which was transported across the nation from west to east at wheat harvest time.
