FFI00006 - EverCrop - delivering profitable perennial options to crop-livestock systems

EverCrop has established a unique research, development and extension (R,D&E) approach that has integrated field experimentation, on-farm trialling, grower participatory research, farm case studies, soil-plant-climate biophysical modelling and whole-farm bio-economic analysis.

DAV00105 - Suppressive soils: Can we find a microbial finger-print using 'omics' technology

Disease suppressiveness of soil is the ability of a soil to suppress disease severity even in the presence of a pathogen, suitable host crop and favourable climatic conditions.This project developed and used new technology tools to study disease suppressive soils for Rhizoctonia solani AG8 and better understand the biological mechanisms that cause disease suppression.

DAN00145 - National independent quality assurance and germplasm maintenance for Rhizobium inoculants EXTENSION

Biologically-fixed nitrogen (N) is estimated to be worth $4 billion annually, supplying more than half of the N required for grain and pasture based industries in Australia. Essentially, that N can be attributed to current and past inoculation.

ICN00019 - Scoping training needs and efficient delivery pathways for adviser training with a focus on crop protection training

The project provided a report to the GRDC detailing findings and recommendations on future investment in crop protection training for advisers. This will equip the GRDC and regional panels with the detailed understanding of crop protection training needs and requirements, for content development and delivery, and with the capacity and capability to shape and inform a possible future adviser, crop protection training initiative.

CSO00016 - Integrated management of Pythium root disease complexes to improve sustainability and productivity of crop rotations

Pythium is often described as the common cold of cropping systems, due to its prevalence in soil and capacity to infect all grain crops and pastures. The incidence of pythium root rot is much greater than previously thought, causing significant reductions in productivity.
