Potential legume alternatives to fallow and wheat monoculture for Mediterranean environments 
blank image
Scott Christiansen , John Ryan , Murari Singh , Serkan Ates , Faik Bahhady , Khalil Mohamed , Omran Youssef and Stephen Loss
pp. 113-121

In a two-course rotation experiment in north-eastern Syria over 10 seasons, the highest wheat grain yields were following fallow (2.57 t ha–1), followed by medic, vetch or lentil (1.90–2.22 t ha–1), and continuous wheat (1.14 t ha–1). The wheat–vetch and wheat–lentil rotations were at least twice as profitable as wheat–fallow, and three times continuous wheat. The inclusion of grain legumes is an excellent alternative to wheat–fallow and continuous wheat production.

Confirmation of chloride deficiency as the cause of leaf spotting in durum wheat grown in the Australian northern grains region 
blank image
G. D. Schwenke , S. R. Simpfendorfer and B. C. Y. Collard
pp. 122-134

Jandaroi, an Australian durum wheat variety, exhibited severe non-pathogenic leaf-spotting in some commercial northwest NSW crops. Leaf-spotting symptoms were reproduced in a glasshouse experiment of durum wheat varieties grown in nil-chloride nutrient solutions. Field experiments showed no significant yield response to chloride fertiliser, probably because plants accessed chloride deep in the soil profile. A strong varietal response to leaf-spotting at low soil chloride concentration demonstrated good potential for breeding to reduce the potential impact of chloride deficiency

Growth and yield responses in wheat and barley to potassium supply under drought or moderately saline conditions in the south-west of Western Australia 
blank image
Qifu Ma , Richard Bell , Craig Scanlan , Gavin Sarre and Ross Brennan
pp. 135-144

Potassium (K) deficiency is becoming increasingly common because the input of K through fertilisers is less than the removal of K at harvest. Two-year field experiments showed that applying K on low K soils enhanced wheat and barley growth and grain yield under drought and salinity. There was also partial K substitution by sodium (Na) in barley on moderately saline soils, which may need taking into account for K-fertiliser management.

Comparative effects of gibberellic acid, kinetin and salicylic acid on emergence, seedling growth and the antioxidant defence system of sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) under salinity and temperature stresses 
blank image
Nimir Eltyb Ahmed Nimir , Shiyuan Lu , Guisheng Zhou , Wenshan Guo , Baoluo Ma and Yonghui Wang
pp. 145-157

The combine stress of salinity and high temperature significantly reduced emergence percentage, seedling growth, fresh and dry seedling weight, and chlorophyll content. Malondialdehyde (MDA) content and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity were increased due to both environmental factors. All hormone treatments positively improved most of the morphological and physiological measurements under salinity and temperature stress, but salicylic acid (SA) was more effective than the other hormone treatments.

Root growth of irrigated summer crops in cotton-based farming systems sown in Vertosols of northern New South Wales 
blank image
N. R. Hulugalle , K. J. Broughton and D. K. Y. Tan
pp. 158-167

Root growth of cotton, maize and sorghum was evaluated using a combination of core sampling, and minirhizotrons and an image capture system. Rooting depth of cotton was shallow. Subsoil (0.6–0.9 m) root growth of cotton was sparse under continuous cotton but was greater with a cotton–wheat rotation. Surface root length density of a Bollgard® cotton variety was less than that of its non-Bollgard counterpart. Subsoil root growth of sorghum and maize ranged from moderate to high.

Management strategies for chicory (Cichorium intybus) and plantain (Plantago lanceolata): impact on dry matter yield, nutritive characteristics and plant density 
blank image
Julia M. Lee , Nivonne R. Hemmingson , Elena M. K. Minnee and Cameron E. F. Clark
pp. 168-183

Chicory and plantain cultivars used for dairying were managed under different defoliation regimes for 18 months. Chicory leaf production was maximised in swards defoliated at 250 mm extended leaf height. With plantain, longer defoliation intervals  increased both leaf and stem yield, and reduced nutritive value. Defoliating plantain swards at 250 mm extended leaf height appeared to provide a balance between yield and nutritive value. Residual height had less of an effect on yield and nutritive characteristics than defoliation interval.

Grazing defoliation and nutritive value of Setaria pumila and Digitaria sanguinalis in Lolium perenne-based swards 
blank image
K. N. Tozer , C. A. Cameron and L. Matthews
pp. 184-191

Setaria pumila and Digitaria sanguinalis are undesirable, C4 annual grasses with a lower nutritive value than that of Lolium perenne. Setaria pumila was defoliated to a greater extent than D. sanguinalis. In addition, post-grazing cover and post-grazing height for both annual grasses increased over the grazing season and were associated with declining nutritive value of both species. Both species readily produced new panicles between grazings and are likely to spread in L. perenne-based dairy pastures unless interventions are used.

Effects of lucerne genotype on morphology, biomass production and nitrogen content of lucerne and tall fescue in mixed pastures 
blank image
Amel Maamouri , Gaëtan Louarn , François Gastal , Vincent Béguier and Bernadette Julier
pp. 192-204

Legume–grass mixtures ensure a high, protein-rich forage yield without nitrogen fertilization. In an experiment that included 46 lucerne and two tall fescue genotypes tested in microplots, we analyzed how lucerne genetic variation affects agronomic traits. Both tall fescue genotypes grown with highly productive lucerne genotypes had an increased leaf elongation and N status but a reduced tiller number, which could limit their persistence.

The economic significance of maintaining pasture production at its peak value 
blank image
C. I. Ludemann , J. L. Jacobs and K. F. Smith
pp. 205-213

Persistence is an important, but generally poorly defined trait of perennial pasture plants. Increases of up to AU$202 ha–1 year–1 in operating profit from pasture persistence—defined as a 1-year increase in duration of peak dry matter production of perennial ryegrass—were modelled for two temperate dairy farms of Australia, compared with up to a $21 ha–1 year–1 increase in operating profit for pasture persistence defined as a reduction in rate of decline in annual pasture production. Results of this study could be used by farmers and plant breeders to aid their decision-making to allocate resources towards improving pasture persistence.

Evaluation of the biochemical and physiological activity of the natural compound, 2,4-ditert-butylphenol on weeds 
blank image
T. S. Chuah , M. Z. Norhafizah and B. S. Ismail
pp. 214-223

2,4-ditert-butylphenol caused excessive production of reactive oxygen. This leads to enhanced lipid peroxidation levels and membrane damage. Increased levels of scavenging enzymes indicate their induction as a secondary defense mechanism in response to 2,4-ditert-butylphenol.

Biomass, fruit yield, water productivity and quality response of processing tomato to plant density and deficit irrigation under a semi-arid Mediterranean climate 
blank image
Cristina Patanè and Alessandro Saita
pp. 224-234

The impact of deficit irrigation on processing tomato at two plant densities was examined in a 2-year experiment. At 5 plants m–2 dry biomass and fruit yield per plant were reduced but fruit yield per unit area was greater than that at 2.5 plants m–2. Deficit irrigation enhanced WUE and allowed a water saving of >45%. A yield response factor Ky greater than Kss reveals a greater crop sensitivity to soil-water deficit in terms of fruit yield than dry biomass.

Effects of grazing on crop crown temperature: implications for phenology 
Matthew T. Harrison, Walter M. Kelman and Jim M. Virgona

Temperature is a fundamental driver of crop development, which has important implications for dry matter partitioning, the timing of flowering and grain yield. Although defoliation initially delays crop ontogeny, elevated microclimatic temperatures of up to 6–7°C significantly enhance post-defoliation development rates as the growing season progresses from winter into spring, mitigating the extent of the delay by anthesis. These results will be useful in designing experiments that propose using grazing or defoliation to manipulate crop flowering time and in interpreting the implications of defoliation on phenology and grain yield.
