So it's not the presence of pathogens that causes plant disease, it's the absence of the suppressing microbes. That's a very interesting finding - challenges the way we think about disease control in crops.

Lovely note from local kids sports team. A little support goes a long way, especially when rural communities are struggling.

Common ryecorn from Victoria. Our soil CaCl pH is 7-8 so no acidity issues. This is our first time growing it so so much still to learn. Taller than other winter cereals and likely to have bigger stronger root systems to chase precious moisture.

Who said cereal rye wouldn’t grow in a drought? Mossy and I out and about west of Goondiwindi looking at seed increase of cereal rye for inclusion in multi-species winter cover crop mixes. FARM is helping farmers source seed - anyone else growing seed for cover crop mixes? Jess

If we have just a little in-crop rain then we will have some chickpea/linseed intercropping to see west of Goondiwindi. Also some Tillage Radish planted with barley. 🌧️

Probably a similar demographic to those who support farmers markets in the cities and regional towns. Who knows? Maybe it's wishful thinking

Imagine if farmers who farmed more sustainably, got paid more for what they produced...
