SAGIT Survey

 

Online Survey

Please fill in this short survey to help us in future planning. 

This should only take a few minutes.

The South Australian Grain Industry Trust wants to know more about what issues you’ll be facing on-farm in the short-term and how to best provide research results directly to you.

If you would prefer, open the survey as a PDF, which you can print and complete by hand

An improved and rapid test to inform sodic soil management (UAD4624)

An improved and rapid test to inform sodic soil management (UAD4624)

Large areas of South Australia are affected by sodic soils which results in lost agricultural productivity. Determination of gypsum rate requirements using conventional methods is problematic and can lead to increased costs for producers. The aim of this project is to develop an improved and rapid test for assessing gypsum requirements to improve crop production in sodic soils in South Australia.

Increasing pulse yields: focus paddocks to identify and manage soilborne constraints (UAD2624)

Increasing pulse yields: focus paddocks to identify and manage soilborne constraints (UAD2624)

This project will assist South Australian growers to increase pulse yields by managing paddock variation associated with soil biotic and abiotic constraints. Data generated will also form the foundation for a decision support model. Focus paddocks will be mapped for pathogen levels and rhizobia as well as physical characteristics including pH, salinity and soil type. These factors will be related to remote sensing imagery and yield maps to determine the drivers of variation.

Multi-scale monitoring of pests and beneficial insects in canola cropping (UAD1424)

Multi-scale monitoring of pests and beneficial insects in canola cropping (UAD1424)

This PhD project will look to develop multi-scale (regional to paddock scale) monitoring methods for canola pests and beneficials, both pre-season and during season. The results will allow for improved risk analysis and decision making for integrated pest management by farmers and agronomists, avoiding over-use of insecticides.
