In Western Australia, competition from 7-90 capeweed plants per square metre in a wheat crop can reduce crop yield by 28-44% and net return by 25-76%.
The full biomass mapping data is available in more detail on the Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Interface (AREMI) – see the links below the dashboard. The AREMI map also allows you to overlay
Shallow relief drains are effective at removing surface water from flooded land. Removing flood water reduces waterlogging and groundwater recharge and improves productivity of the soil.
Permanent raised beds are a practical and economic means of managing some waterlogged sites in wetter areas of the Western Australian grainbelt.
Climate projections for Western Australia (WA) are that average annual temperature will increase by 1.1–2.7°C in a medium-emission scenario, and 2.6–5.1°C in a high-emission scenario by the end of
Plant available soil water graphs show the amount of soil water accumulated from the start of summer (1 November) through the grain growing season and can be used as a tool in the seasonal decision
The extreme weather events tool uses data from DPIRD's extensive weather station network to map extreme temperatures, either below or above a specified threshold.
The potential yield tool uses seasonal rainfall and decile finishes, calculated from historical data, to calculate the maximum wheat yield possible in the absence of any other constraints.
Fruit must meet minimum quality levels to meet consumer expectations and encourage return purchases.
This Sheep Industry Business Innovation (SIBI) subproject aimed to build industry capacity, both human and physical, to deliver the volume and quality of sheep and meat required by new markets.
All agricultural industries in Western Australia will need to deal with some level of climate change in the coming decades. The effects of climate change will vary regionally and by enterprise, wit
Wind erosion in Western Australian agriculture is common, especially in years of late and dry growing seasons.
Open deep drains are deep excavated channels with sloping floors and sides, designed to intercept and drain surface (usually fresh) and subsurface water (usually saline in Western Australia) from a
The Report card on sustainable natural resource use in agriculture: status and trend in the agricultural areas of the south-west of Western Australia was produced by this department to doc
Tar vine (Boerhavia coccinea) is found throughout Australia, with the exception of Tasmania.
There are multiple possible causes of both infertility and abortion in ewes, but making a definitive diagnosis is often difficult. Some diseases which are exotic to Australia can cause abortions.
