Identification of glyphosate-resistant Lolium rigidum and Raphanus raphanistrum populations within the first Western Australian plantings of transgenic glyphosate-resistant canola 
Michael B. Ashworth, Michael J. Walsh, Ken C. Flower and Stephen B. Powles

Surveys of the first transgenic glyphosate-resistant canola crops grown in the Western Australian grainbelt (2010, 2011) were conducted to obtain baseline data regarding the glyphosate-resistance status of weed species following the exclusive use of glyphosate for weed control. These surveys identified glyphosate resistance in one wild radish population and eight annual ryegrass populations. There was no evidence of glyphosate resistance in barley grass, brome grass, wild oat, capeweed or small-flowered mallow.

Lutein esterification in wheat endosperm is controlled by the homoeologous group 7, and is increased by the simultaneous presence of chromosomes 7D and 7Hch from Hordeum chilense 
M. G. Mattera, A. Cabrera, D. Hornero-Méndez and S. G. Atienza

Introgression of Phytoene synthase 1 from Hordeum chilense into wheat increases seed carotenoid content. The simultaneous presence of chromosomes 7Hch and 7D increased lutein diesters content which indicates the existence of genes involved in the esterification of xanthophylls in both chromosomes. The results suggest that 7Hch genes preferentially esterify lutein with palmitic acid, whereas 7D is either indifferent to the fatty acid or it prefers linoleic acid for lutein esterification.

Sequential zinc and iron biofortification of bread-wheat grains: from controlled to uncontrolled environments 
Fernando C. Lidon, Ana S. Almeida, Ana R. Costa, Ana S. Bagulho, Paula Scotti-Campos, José N. Semedo, Benvindo Maçãs, José Coutinho, Nuno Pinheiro, Conceição Gomes, António E. Leitão, Isabel P. Pais, Maria M. Silva, Fernando H. Reboredo, Maria F. Pessoa and José C. Ramalho

A 10- and 4-fold biofortification of bread wheat grains in Zn and Fe was carried out under controlled-environment conditions. Under field conditions without Zn and Fe, these grains kept enhanced levels without reaching the threshold of toxicity and with negligible modifications to grain texture and nutritional value.

Effect of the maize–soybean intercropping system on the potential bioavailability of magnesium, iron and zinc 
Vesna Dragicevic, Snezana Oljaca, Milovan Stojiljkovic, Milena Simic, Zeljko Dolijanovic and Natalija Kravic

Different cropping practices affect absorption and accumulation of mineral elements in grain and consequently nutritional quality of the food produced. Intercropping of maize and soybean, in combination with microbiological and organic fertilisers, had positive impact on grain yield, as well as on Mg, Fe and Zn accumulation in grain. These cropping systems could serve as measure for increased yield and nutritional quality of maize and soybean grain.

Identifying water-responsive and drought-tolerant chickpea genotypes 
Aladdin Hamwieh and Muhammad Imtiaz

This research aims to quantify the responses of drought-tolerant genotypes of chickpea to water availability under three irrigation regimes. Sixteen genotypes of chickpea were tested and ten genotypes performed better under 30% of and full supplemental irrigation. Three genotypes are recommended for the national programs of Mediterranean countries as being drought-tolerant and especially responsive to water.

Phylogenetic effects on shoot magnesium concentration 
Philip J. White, Helen C. Bowen, Emily Farley, Emma K. Shaw, Jacqueline A. Thompson, Gladys Wright and Martin R. Broadley

Knowledge of the concentrations of magnesium (Mg) in crops and pastures can help in formulation of appropriate human and animal diets. Ancient evolutionary processes have resulted in large differences in shoot Mg concentrations between plant species. This paper reports that the peculiarly high shoot Mg concentrations found in species of the Caryophyllales order, such as the amaranths, buckwheats and beets, evolved in an ancient ancestor of all the Caryophyllales families.

Saline water irrigation of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) under Mediterranean conditions 
Attila Yazar, Çigdem Incekaya, S. Metin Sezen and Sven-Erik Jacobsen

Irrigation and evapotranspiration, grain yield, aboveground biomass yield and harvest index were evaluated under fresh and saline water regimes. Different parameters, such as water productivity and irrigation water productivity, yield components, leaf area index and plant height, were studied to assess quinoa’s growth and yield. Grain yields were slightly reduced by irrigation water salinity compared with fresh water irrigation. Results showed that quinoa can be irrigated with saline water with EC level up to 30 dS m–1 with acceptable yields in the semi-arid and arid regions of the Mediterranean Basin.

Can wheat varietal mixtures buffer the impacts of water deficit? 
blank image
Paul Adu-Gyamfi , Tariq Mahmood and Richard Trethowan
pp. 757-769

Varietal mixtures based on complementary above and below ground physiological and disease resistance traits can stabilise yield and improve water-use efficiency. Significant mixture effects on grain yield, abiotic stress tolerance, weed- infestation, lodging, disease expression and processing quality have been observed in cereal grains and legumes.

Omid Ali Akbarpour , Hamid Dehghani and Mohammad Javad Rousta
pp. 770-781

Iranian wheat evaluated to obtain the tolerance to salinity stress in comparison with normal environment. The results of analyses showed high broad-sense heritability under normal (H2b = 0.61) and saline conditions (H2b = 0.55) for grain yield. Genotypic and phenotypic correlation showed that biomass, harvest index and spike-associated traits had the positive correlations with grain yield in both conditions and those can be used for enhancing grain yield indirectly.

Andrew Milgate , Ben Ovenden , Dante Adorada , Chris Lisle , John Lacy and Neil Coombes
pp. 782-792

This paper presents the first study of GE interactions of triticale in Australia under irrigated production systems. We conducted trials on 101 triticale genotypes at two locations over 4 years under intensive irrigated management practices and measured the yield potential, GE interactions, heritability and estimated genetic gain of yield, lodging resistance and several other traits important for breeding triticale.

G. Mahajan , N. Sharma , R. Kaur and B. S. Chauhan
pp. 793-801

Water productivity and quality characteristics of photo-period sensitive basmati cultivars can be increased by planting them late in the period of low evaporative demand in north-west India. For photo-period insensitive basmati cultivars, short duration cultivars helped in increasing water productivity and quality characteristics.

pp. 802-816

Three soybean RIL populations were subjected to severe but transient drought in the glasshouse. Genetic differences were detected within and between populations for relative water content, epidermal conductance and leaf survival during the stress, and for recovery after re-watering. The population which had the oilseed varieties Valder and CPI26671 as parents generally showed weaker recovery than the other populations that had the landrace variety G2120 as a parent.

pp. 817-830

In an evaluation of DArT technology in soybean, large numbers of markers including several QTLs relating to drought stress response were identified. The sequences of 18 selected QTLs all aligned with known genomic regions, some of which were already reported to harbour drought-related QTLs but most of which were novel. While the new QTLs were of relatively minor effect, the DArT technology allows many genotypes to be genotyped simultaneously.

pp. 831-840

Pearl millet is an important fodder for cattle feed and can be used for fuel ethanol production in dry areas. Irrigation level and atmospheric CO2 concentration influence the development of pearl millet, which also establishes symbiotic associations with mycorrhizal fungi. These factors all affected the accumulation of proteins and sugars in leaves, thus affecting the quality of pearl millet for different practical uses.

Host resistance to Sclerotinia stem rot in historic and current Brassica napus and B. juncea varieties: critical management implications 
blank image
Margaret B. Uloth , Ming Pei You and Martin J. Barbetti
pp. 841-848

When a selection of 55 historic, current and potential new Australian canola and mustard varieties were field screened to determine their relative levels of resistance to Sclerotinia Stem Rot, mean lesion length following stem inoculation with Sclerotinia sclerotiorum pathotype 76 ranged from 3 mm in Brassica napus Mystic to 203 mm in B. juncea Xceed X121 CL. A histological study showed that this high level resistance in Mystic was associated with strong deposition of lignin in stem cortical cell walls to form a barrier between the invading pathogen and the vascular tissues and breeding programs can immediately utilize this resistance to improve future Australian cultivars. That there was no association between mean lesion length and the year of varietal release, shows there has been no improvement in level of resistance to SSR in Australian canola and mustard varieties over the past two decades.

pp. 849-856

A single leaf that can be used to evaluate seedling growth and assimilate accumulation of oilseed rape is of great significance to conduct research into the crop. The morphological and physiological characteristics of various functional leaves were compared with the characteristics of whole plant at seedling stage. The results revealed that the fifth leaf is most suitable to represent the whole seedling plant for evaluation of winter oilseed rape.

Phosphate response of Trifolium uniflorum compared with T. repens and some T. repens×T. uniflorum hybrids 
blank image
S. N. Nichols and J. R. Crush
pp. 857-863

Introgression of genes from Trifolium uniflorum may improve phosphorus use efficiency in white clover. The natural habitat of T. uniflorum, impoverished Mediterranean scrubland, suggests adaptation to infertile soils. T. uniflorum exhibited traits e.g. slow growth rate, sequestering phosphate in its roots as phosphate availability  increased, that are indicative of adaptation to low phosphorus soils, and some of these traits were found in some white clover × T. uniflorum interspecific hybrids.

Mervyn Shepherd , Rachel Wood , Camilla Bloomfield and Carolyn Raymond
pp. 864-876

Extremes in water availability are an ongoing challenge to the profitability, resilience and expansion of the predominantly rainfed tea-tree oil plantation industry in Australia. This paper identifies genetic differences in the growth, morphology and development among geographically diverse sources of tea tree when grown under conditions of water deficit or excess. Drought-resistance upland sources may represent a valuable genetic resource for further domestication of tea tree.
