This project aims to evaluate the effectiveness of nitrogen fixation in pulses through improved rhizobial strains in the GRDC Northern region. This project is a collaboration with NSW DPI. Field trials are being conducted at three locations (Condobolin, Cowra and Griffith) as part of this project.

The validation trials are part of the sandy soil project and they aim to validate the outcomes of the Sandy Soils Research Program across the south-eastern region, enabling targeted mitigation/amelioration techniques to be tested or demonstrated to overcome diagnosed primary/secondary constraints on sandy soils. It is a collaboration with the University of South Australia, Mallee Sustainable Farming, PIRSA and […]
Two wheat variety trials were established by Ag Grow Agronomy at Barellan and Goolgowi in 2019.
Conducted at 3 sites (Beelbangera, Barellan and Goolgowi), these trials are looking at innovative ways of getting early sown crops up and out of the ground using polymers that attract moisture to the seed.
Three nitrogen and phosphorous trials were established by Ag Grow Agronomy and Research in 2019.
As part of this project Ag Grow Agronomy is conducting trials at 3 locations. It is a collaboration with Syngenta. There are a number of treatments at each site comparing Callisto to other products and an untreated control.
Two separate trials will be conducted for wheat and barley and with varying rates of nitrogen. The aim of these trials is to test the performance of InterGrain wheat and barley varieties, in terms of yield and quality, under high yielding irrigated wheat conditions, targeting 8-10t/ha.
This trial was set up to determine the effect of plant growth regulators on growth (crop canopy and lodging), grain yield and quality of barley grown under a high yielding situation.
This information will be used to make selection decisions on varieties that offer growers advantages over currently grown varieties and variety progression through the breeding program and commercial release.
Seed dressings for the control of smuts and bunts are recommended to be applied to all wheat crops prior to sowing. There are a range of seed dressings now available, some of which also suppress a variety of wind or stubble borne diseases.
