DAQ466 - On-farm grain storage in the northern region - development, evaluation and implementation of best management practices.

This extension project aimed to develop and promote Best Management Practices (BMP) for on-farm grain storage to meet market quality requirements, minimise costs and address safety issues. BMP guidelines were developed and published as Department of Primary Industry (DPI) Notes.

UWA00022 - Quality screening support for pulse breeding programs - Western Region

This project was the continuation of project DAW616 as a support for the western region's breeding and selection programs in field peas, chickpeas, faba beans and other pulses. The project aimed to provide quality screening support for the western region's pulse breeding and selection projects.

CHC23 - Development of rapid and non-destructive assays for the selection of single lupin seeds with improved protein content

Project Aims: To develop non-destructive and high throughput Near Infrared Reflectance (NIR) assays for the selection of single sweet lupins (Lupinus angustifolius) seeds with increased protein content.

CSO194 - Nutrient balance of a typical wheatbelt farm in WA and impact on soil properties

This is the first report in Australia of nutrient balance at farm scale that takes account of the major processes controlling nutrient fluxes. The work included interacting with growers to access direct annual values for nutrient input from fertilisers and export in farm produce from farm records for each paddock dating back to the 1960s.

DAQ500 - Extensive dryland pulse development in Queensland - Component 1: Southern Queensland and Component 2: Central Queensland

The primary objective of this project has been to improve grower confidence in the major pulse crops, chickpeas and mungbeans. Only three to five years ago, growers and agronomists in Queensland (Qld) did not have reliable, locally derived information on key fundamental aspects of production such as: Plant population and row spacing: Region specific experiments have provided firm recommendations on optimal plant populations and row spacings for chickpeas and mungbeans growers in the northern grain belt.
