USDA data shows that global wheat supply issues are continuing to ease.
The team found this element has the ability to control the production of Tox1 - a toxic molecule produced by the pathogen after infection and is responsible for major damage to sensitive wheat varieties.
The 70,000 square metre development is set to include the construction of about 55,000 tonnes of granular fertiliser storage in a new warehouse and 32,000t of liquid fertiliser or Urea Ammonium Nitrate (UAN) storage in two 16,000t tanks.
With climate change affecting crop production and threatening food security worldwide, Monica Danilevicz hopes her research will help breeders develop climate-resilient crops with higher yields.
In sorghum, a rate of one to two litres per hectare can be applied either as a single application before the crop or weeds emerge, or as a split application pre and post-crop emergence (up to six-leaf stage).
The 2021 trial, which was an InterGrain project but independently managed by Crop Circle Consulting, compared various long-season wheat varieties over two sites - Tenindewa and Yuna - which were sown on April 15 and 21 respectively.
Spatial data, such as remote sensing using near-infrared and infrared spectra, can detect and map regions of crops that are experiencing biotic or abiotic stress.
China's government wants to curb grain imports, but growth in its grain production isn't keeping pace with demand.
As part of a Grains Research and Development Corporation-funded project, the research team, are investigating how to exploit the novel biofertiliser to tackle the global challenge of food security and reduce the use of chemical inputs in agriculture.
