DAW719 - Crop Variety Information Service for Western Australia

Adoption of new crop varieties is important to growers wishing to benefit from the advances available in terms of yield, disease resistance and/or quality. With high numbers of new varieties entering the market place from the increasingly commercial field of crop breeding, it is critical that unbiased and comprehensive information regarding performance of these lines is provided to growers and the agri-industry to ensure adoption is not only rapid, but also appropriate.

DAW717 - Soil & surface water management for profitable crops & pastures on waterlogged & saline land

The project investigated the ability of raised beds (RB) to: a) prevent waterlogging; b) enhance leaching; c) minimise capillary rise; d) reduce on-site recharge; and e) restore profitable cropping and pasture growth on waterlogged and saline land.

DAW712 - Enhancing the Quality and Export of Pulses from the Western Region

Intensive research during the 1990s stimulated rapid expansion of the pulse industry in Western Australia (WA). The amount of information and number of varieties available rapidly expanded and more growers participated in the industry.

DAW708 - Lupin breeding in Australia - AGWEST component

Lupin breeding continues to support the lupin industry by producing varieties with improved grain yield, disease resistance, herbicide tolerance and quality. There were a number of significant developments in lupin breeding which included the national release of a new narrow-leafed lupin variety, Mandelup,  the introduction of marker assisted selection for anthracnose resistance, identification of a high protein narrow-leafed lupin line that should create new market opportunities and higher returns to growers, potential release of two yellow lupin lines and identification of one albus line for release that should allow the albus industry in Western Australia (WA) to be re-vitalised.

DAW701 - Effect of copper and zinc nutrition on the baking and dough quality of wheat: pilot study

Dough quality is essentially the suitability of wheat grain for a specific end product, such as bread making. Trace elements are involved as activators of enzyme in plants and grain and, as such, are suggested to affect grain quality.
