Abstract

Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is strongly committed to connecting grains research and development results, from a range of research organisations, to growers in regional Queensland. Our three regional agronomy teams based in Goondiwindi, Toowoomba and Emerald, undertake regional testing and validation of a broad range of contemporary grain production techniques and systems. Their purpose is to provide growers and advisors with best practice guidance to apply to their farming enterprises. Our regional agronomy teams are meeting the constant challenge of keeping up-to-date on grain production concepts and how those concepts can be tested regionally to show productive and economic benefits to the local industry.
This is the 2016 edition of Queensland Grains Research and it continues to communicate many of the key questions, underlying methodology and findings of the research achieved by our agronomists. Awareness of the regional research being carried out, accessibility of results and acknowledgement of the researchers who are leading the research, are key communication objectives of this edition. We reinforce our approach of conducting statistically sound trials through the close integration and support our regional agronomy team receives from the Department’s biometry team of experts in trial design, analysis, efficient data capture and storage. This provides a framework of quality assurance to all components of our trial program and ensures rigor in our findings.
This research is co-funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation and emphasises the importance of continuous investment throughout Australia’s grain producing regions. We would also like to acknowledge the help of producers, advisers and agricultural supply chain businesses, such as seed companies and local suppliers, who have contributed to the success of these trials.
