DAN00158 - Increasing the market value of canola through improved quality traits

This study aimed to evaluate the quality traits in canola grown in Australia, and to determine the potential for improvement of quality in Australian canola germplasm. Quality traits were measured in canola varieties from the National Brassica Germplasm Improvement Program (NBGIP) and the National Variety Trials (NVT) with considerable variation observed.

DAN00199 - Building Pulse Agronomy Capacity in NSW - Succession Plan for Dr Eric Armstrong

This project's aim was to recruit a new research agronomist for pulse crop research in southern New South Wales (NSW). The new position was advertised across Australia with 24 applicants applying for the position.

DAN01N - Regional Wheat Variety Trials - Central West

Field trials will be established on between 30 and 40 farmers properties each year to evaluate new and potential varieties against currently recommended standards. Wheat varieties will form the major part of the program, however there is also a need to examine varieties and management practices of alternative winter crops for wheat growers.

BRI22 - Dough strength and mixing characteristics for hard wheats

Pan bread is a major end product produced from wheat. Hard wheat varieties are suitable for this type of bread. The relationship between physical dough test results and bread making performance was examined.

DAN00151 - PBA Chickpea - National Breeding Program

The aim of this project was to breed and commercialise improved desi and kabuli chickpea varieties for Australian growers. The breeding program has built on the success of previous program releases of Australian bred desi varieties with improved ascochyta blight (AB) resistance, PBA HatTrick and PBA Slasher, with the release of PBA Boundary (2011 desi - northern New South Wales (NSW) and southern Queensland (QLD), PBA Pistol (2011 desi - central QLD), PBA StrikerA (2012 desi - south and west), PBA Maiden (2013 desi - south and west), PBA Monarch (2013 kabuli), and PBA SeamerA (2016 desi - central NSW to central QLD).
