DAN00144 - How much ammonia is lost from surface-applied nitrogen fertiliser in northwest NSW?

Nitrogen (N) fertilisers applied to the soil surface are at risk of gaseous loss through ammonia (NH3) volatilisation. But there has been very little field measurement to gauge the actual magnitude of N losses in the Australian dryland grains' industry.

DAN00143 - Northern NSW Integrated Disease Management

The annual cost of chickpea and winter cereal diseases to growers in the GRDC northern region is estimated at $17 million and $261 million, respectively. A total of 103 field experiments were conducted across central and northern New South Wales (NSW) from 2010 to 2012, aimed at reducing losses and refining management of these diseases.

DAN00138 - Barley Agronomy for the Southern Region 2010-2013

A collaborative, tri-state barley agronomy project was implemented across central and southern New South Wales (NSW), South Australia (SA) and Victoria (Vic). Its aim was to develop improved agronomic practices and ensure the successful adoption of both existing and new varieties through the development of agronomic guidelines to optimise grain yield and quality parameters.

DAN00115 - Integrated disease control for broad leaf crops with varietal selection and crop management for southern NSW and northern Victoria

This project provided support to the oilseed and pulse programs and industries in southern New South Wales (NSW) and northern Victoria (VIC) by employing a broad leaf pathologist at Wagga Wagga, (NSW).

DAN00110 - More profitable chickpeas through disease management and disease screening - Northern Region

Plant diseases have been estimated to cost chickpea growers in the northern region (NR) $20 million annually. Ascochyta blight (AB) is the major constraint but phytophthora root rot (PRR) and viruses also impact on production.
