CRT Catalogue Pull-out Feature : Crop Feature - Autumn 2013
There’s always better value at CRT. www.crt.com.au There’s always better value at CRT. Crop Protection TechUpdate–Autumn2013 Issue 4 Autumn 2013 Tech Update Increase yield with inoculants There is a significant move taking place to increase the area of pulse crops for improved weed control options in a brown manure situation and increased nitrogen availability for the following wheat or canola crops. Brown manuring pea crops can provide significant success in weed management through the use of non-selective herbicides, such as glyphosate and paraquat for grass control, although the timing of application needs to target the key weeds to be controlled. The use of in-crop glyphosate should also be taken into consideration if there are plans to use or introduce Roundup Ready® canola in the paddock in the future. In addition to harvesting grain from the paddock, growers are looking at how to reduce their reliance on fertilisers with price variability affecting farm plans and profits. One area where farmers who are looking to maximise their results from pulse crops such as peas is to use inoculants which contain rhizobia in the correct way. Research carried out by CRT Technical Services showed significant yield increases in trials where normal and double rates of inoculant were applied to seed prior to sowing compared to untreated plots. These trials showed there is benefit in applying rhizobia even in paddocks where there was a history of application. There have been many situations where farmers see good nodulation but the rhizobia are not effectively fixing nitrogen and this is caused by native strains of the rhizobia becoming dominant.
