Yield, nutritive value, and phenotypic variability of tall wheatgrass grown in a nonsaline environment
http://www.ccmaknowledgebase.vic.gov.au/soilhealth/soils_resource_details.php?resource_id=830
Soil Health Knowledge Base External Link 1994

Author: Smith, K.F.; Lee, C.K.; Borg, P.T.; Flinn, P.C.; (Victorian Department of Agriculture, Horsham. Pastoral and Veterinary Institute)

The phenotypic variation of 10 important botanical traits and 2 traits related to herbage quality was measured in tall wheatgrass cv. Tyrrell. Five certified lines of Tyrrell were compared among themselves and with cvv. Largo and San Jose. Significant differences, both between cultivars and within lines of Tyrrell, were observed for several traits. The phenotypic variability measured confirms that Tyrrell is distinct from its progenitor, Largo, and has sufficient variability to make it suitable for use in a selection program. In a second experiment the yield and nutritive value of Tyrrell, Largo, and San Jose were compared with perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) cv. Ellett and tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) cv. Demeter. There were no differences between cultivars for either total...

Yield and stolon characteristics of white clover (Trifolium repens L.) cultivars in perennial pasture in Victoria
http://www.ccmaknowledgebase.vic.gov.au/soilhealth/soils_resource_details.php?resource_id=826
Soil Health Knowledge Base External Link 1997

Author: Clark, S.G. (Agriculture Victoria, Pastoral and Veterinary Institute, Hamilton); McFadden, M.J. (Victorian College of Agriculture and Horticulture, Glenormiston);

The herbage yield, stolon characteristics and soil seed reserves of a diverse range of white clover (Trifolium repens L.) cultivars were studied at Hamilton in south-western Victoria. The cultivars were sown with perennial grass (Phalaris aquatica L.) and the pasture was rotationally grazed by sheep. The aim of the study was to identify white clover types which would persist under sheep grazing. The widely used cultivar, Haifa, fails to persist in this environment. Cultivars were divided into 3 groups depending on leaf size (range 2.513.0 cm2). Large-leaved cultivars were the most productive in the first year of the experiment but by year 3 some of the intermediate leaf-size cultivars were the most productive. Haifa (large leaved) was particularly unproductive in the third year...

A user-friendly decision support aid to calculate yield and nitrogen requirements of cereals and canola Potential yields are defined by the amount of water made available to a crop. However, actual yield is often constrained by factors such as inadequate nutrition, disease or subsoil constraints dryland agriculture in southern Australia. The balance between availability of water and nitrogen has been shown to impact significantly on yield, grain quality and efficient use of resources. To help farmers achieve this balance, a simple spreadsheet model was developed for estimating potential yield and nitrogen fertiliser requirements. The model is available in two versions: The Generic Calculator is a more general version based on user inputs of growing season rainfall Your...

The Yarrowee river flood study identified major flooding in the city of Ballarat during a 1:100 AEP (Annual Exceedance Probability) flood event in the Yarrowee River. This study contains the results of the investigation into the extent of flood damages and the feasibility of potential flood mitigation options. Six flood mitigation options were investigated, five being various combinations of retarding basins and the sixth being the concrete lining of the Yarrowee river channel beneath the CBD.

Soil Health Knowledge Base Offline 1997

Author: Tract Consultants

The Masterplan for Wye River and Separation Creek foreshore evolved over a ten month period. This report highlights the key findings and recommendations of the study which involved site analysis, consideration of opportunities and constraints and draft and final management plans. The overiding treatment for the foreshore is to minimise intrusion by new structures, plant native plant species, remove weeds and maintain and keep the whole area as natural as possible, By far the greatest concern was a management issue of exploring alternative effluent and stormwater disposal systems ensuring that no pollution is caused by the Hotel and caravan parks. The plan also proposes and upgrade of the general store with a boardwalk linking to aproposed pedestrian bridge. The plan outlines short-,...

Wurdi Boluc Reservoir enlargement project: seepage control works

Author: Truscott E G (Gutteridge Haskins and Davey), Morris P A (Gutteridge Haskins and Davey), McIntyre C J (Geelong and District Water Board)

The capacity of the Wurdi Boluc Reservoir Vic has been increased by raising existing embankments and extending the reservoir area. This had the potential to increase piezometric levels in underlying, low permeability aquifers, leading to salinization outside the project area. Seepage analyses and costing indicated that the best method of ensuring no increase in salinized areas was the use of drainage trenches. To minimize cost of seepage control measures and to ensure technical adequacy of the system, an observational approach was adopted. Monitoring during the first filling and period of new full supply level indicated that piezometric levels in the basal silts and sands were generally adequately controlled. The exception was a low lying area south and southeast of the trench system....

Wurdee Boluc Reservoir enlargement

Soil Health Knowledge Base Offline 1993

Author: McIntyre, C.J. (Geelong and District Water Board); Stewart, D.J. (Gutteridge Haskins and Davey);

The option adopted to provide additional water resources within the Geelong Vic region was to increase the storage capacity of Wurdi Boluc Reservoir by raising the existing embankments and extending them to the north and south. This option provided the maximum increase in safe annual yield without the need for pumping into the reservoir, was not considered to have any significant adverse environmental affects and was economically feasible. Because the reservoir is located on a complex geological site and subsurface conditions include two separate aquifer systems, investigation and control of seepage from the reservoir as a result of the raising formed a significant part of the project.

Woodlots for weed control and profit

Soil Health Knowledge Base Offline 1999

Author: Anderson G (Victorian Department of Natural Resources and Environment, Geelong)

More than 10% of the land to the west of Melbourne Vic is considered to be non-arable and unsuitable for cultivation. The most suitable use for this type of land may be tree farming, but techniques for easy and economical broadacre tree establishment must be developed. With this aim, a direct tree-seeding trial was conducted which showed that the scalping-sowing technique was the most successful soil preparation method, and weed control with glyphosate alone provided the greatest tree seedling germination. Manna gum Eucalyptus viminalis), sugar gum (E. cladocalyx) and spotted gum (E. maculata) were the best eucalypt performers for direct seeding of those sown.

Author: MacEwan, R.;

This report has been prepared under a consultancy agreement between WcstVic Dairy Research and Development Committee and the University of Ballarat. The project was instigated under the general topic of 'wet soil management options for dairy farms in South West Victoria" which is defined as a priority in the Western Victorian Dairyr Industry Development Program (Mason & Lcmcrlc, 1994). The scope of this report is to review' existing information and develop a number of possible options for the WcstVic Dairy R & D committee to consider. One or a number of options will then be developed into a full proposal for submission to Daily Research and Development Corporation (DRDC) for funding.

Author: Starks J (Birds Australia)

The Orange-bellied Parrot, Neophema chysogaster, is one of the rarest birds in Australia and is listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Protection Act 1993. The results of a coordinated and simultaneous survey of known winter habitats at Lake Connewarre Vic, Point Wilson/Werribee Sewage Farm Vic, and King Island TAS, and of detailed searches in coastal and sub-coastal grasslands and agricultural areas in southern and south-eastern Victoria are presented. Although the total number of N. chysogaster recorded (40) was only one less than the previous year, the percentage recorded at the known sites was lower than in previous years. The results of the winter count were also significantly less than summer counts, suggesting that winter counts no longer provide an adequate measure...
