New longer residual canegrub control to benefit industry
Sugarcane growers dealing with canegrubs have a new tool at their disposal thanks to a long-term collaborative partnership between SRA and Crop Care Australia (CCA).
A look into the biology of sugarcane soils reveals lost yield potential
A research project currently underway is looking at the complex collection of living organisms in sugarcane soils and their relationship to productivity.
Grower project yields lessons for soil health improvements
A Burdekin grower group project is finding that applying microbes to soils is not enough by itself to improve soil health, and that when applying microbes you need to consider the entire soil environment.
Sugarcane seed project looks at cane's 'weediness'
Most farmers spend little time thinking about whether the tiny seeds from sugarcane flowers actually germinate in their paddocks or the broader environment.
SRA optimises sugarcane variety selection with QCANESelectTM
Optimising sugarcane variety selection for different soil types, environments and management targets will maximise productivity and profit for growers and millers.
Trickle investment delivers water use efficiency
The investment in trickle-tape irrigation is yielding positive results for Burdekin farmer Aaron Linton.
Early crop forecasts could help improve nitrogen use efficiency
New research in the Wet Tropics is looking at how climate models and the La Nina weather pattern can help predict the size of the crop for the coming year.
Tully growers see tissue culture benefits
A project underway by the productivity services at Tully is helping growers to adopt tissue culture technology, allowing them access to varieties sooner.
A piece-by-piece look into Mr Average cane bin
This season, the Isis Central Sugar Mill has dissected three bins to examine extraneous matter levels.
Getting the most crop per drop
New research is looking at ways that future sugarcane varieties can be bred to offer the best performance for future climatic challenges such as increased water stress and increased carbon dioxide levels.
