GRAIN-GROWERS can reap a high return
on investment from managing weeds in fallow
between harvest and the sowing of winter
The revelation is according to a new reference
manual for grain-growers and advisers in the south-
ern and western grains regions of Australia.
The Summer Fallow Weed Management manual,
published by the Grains Research and Development
Corporation, demonstrates the economic benefits of
summer fallow weed management flow from extra
amounts of high-value water and nitrogen.
It also shows crop establishment advantages and
reduced issues with weed-vectored disease and insect
ICAN's John Cameron, who co-authored the
manual with Agronomo's Andrew Storrie, said
weeds in summer fallows robbed the next crop of
vital subsoil moisture and nutrients.
"Very few weeds are needed before a significant
amount of highly valuable soil water is lost," Mr
Stopping weed growth in the fallow can lead to
yield increases in the following crop via several path-
These include increased plant-available water, a
wider and more reliable sowing window, higher lev-
els of plant-available nitrogen and reduced levels of
weed-vectored diseases and nematodes.
Other pathways include reduced levels of rust
inoculum via interruption of the green bridge, re-
duced levels of diseases vectored by aphids that build
in numbers on summer weeds and reduced weed
physical impacts on crop establishment.
Managing weeds will increase productivity Black spot funds boost
REGIONAL roads will be the
big winners in the national Black
Spot program, following a funding
The Federal Government will triple
the program's funding to $160 million
from 2015/16, of which 50 per cent or
more will go towards regional roads in
the first two years.
South Australian senator Anne Rus-
ton encouraged regional councils to
take advantage of the funding boost
and submit projects under the pro-
"The government will also relax
eligibility criteria for the Black Spot
program, reducing the minimum ben-
efit-cost ratio requirement from 2:1 to
1:1 and the crash history requirement
from three casualty crashes in five years
to two," she said.
"This will be of considerable as-
sistance to smaller regional councils
which have projects that were not eli-
gible under the previous criteria."
She said more than 60 per cent of
road deaths take place on rural roads
around the country.
Wakefield recently received more
than $400,000 under the program to
fix black spots around the electorate,
which will fund four projects includ-
ing a lighting upgrade at Willaston and
a safer right turn in Elizabeth North.
