DAN473 - Efficient Weed Control in Central West NSW

The aim of this project was to improve cost effective weed control options in Central West New South Wales (NSW). The project started with a survey on weeds and best practices which provided directions for a trial and extension program.

DAN465 - Reducing the impacts of weeds in wide row no-till cropping systems

Growers have been reluctant to use chickpeas, faba beans and canola in their rotations because of the difficulties in controlling weeds. This project was able to define the yield-loss versus weed density relationships for these alternative crops and then investigate several different aspects of agronomy that may advantage the crop and reduce the impact of weeds.

DAN444 - Canola and mustard in northern NSW

This project (DAN444) has contributed to the expansion of the canola industry in northern New South Wales (NSW) in recent years and provided a basis for sounder agronomic principles. Yield of canola is increasing in the north by approx.

DAN442 - Pulse Development and Disease Management - Northern NSW

At the start of this project, adoption of pulses in the northern grains region was limited by a lack of disease resistant varieties and incomplete agronomic and disease management packages. The project focused on crop and disease management and had two modules – pathology and agronomy/evaluation.

DAN405 - Development and safe use of grain storage chemicals - Component 7- Resistance monitoring and management (Southern Region)

Post-harvest cereal grains are protected from insect infestation during storage by a range of methods including silo hygiene, grain fumigation, grain protectant insecticides and aeration cooling of grain.
