  • Gene pool for yellow spot resistance expands
    Gene pool for yellow spot resistance expands
    Author: Dr Manisha Shankar, Dorthe Jorgensen, Professor Diane Mather, Dr Grant Hollaway, Professor Stephen Neate and Lisle Snyman, 16 Feb 2021

    Genetic resistance is one of the key tools to manage yellow spot in wheat. Research has now identified multiple new resistance genes for progression into Australian breeding programs, and has better quantified potential yield losses.

  • Disease tools available on-the-go
    Disease tools available on-the-go
    Author: Dr Art Diggle, Dr Grant Hollaway, Fumie Horiuchi and Jean Galloway, 11 Feb 2021

    Easy-to-use apps designed to help growers make informed disease-management decisions are now available for use on tablet devices. The latest app supports the management of stripe rust in wheat.

  • Pulse crops can cut root lesion nematode numbers
    Pulse crops can cut root lesion nematode numbers
    Author: Dr Grant Hollaway, Jon Baker and Dr Joshua Fanning, 05 Feb 2021

    Management of root lesion nematodes relies on being able to identify nematodes and use resistant break crops to reduce the number of nematodes in the soil. New resistance ratings for pulse crops will help growers select the most-effective break crops.

  • Yield and crown rot tolerance targeted
    Yield and crown rot tolerance targeted
    Author: Dr Steven Simpfendorfer, Clayton Forknall, Dr Daniel Hüberli, Dr Grant Hollaway and Dr Phil Davies, 04 Feb 2021

    Fusarium crown rot can be devastating in seasons with dry conditions during grain filling. Selecting a variety with good tolerance can limit yield loss. New research is targeting varieties that yield well regardless of Fusarium crown rot expression.

  • New rust pathotype puts pressure on durum wheat varieties
    New rust pathotype puts pressure on durum wheat varieties
    Author: Professor Robert Park, Professor Harbans Bariana, Dr Grant Hollaway, Dr Will Cuddy, Dr Andrew Milgate, 15 Jun 2020

    Watch out for Pathotype 198 - a Stripe rust that may threaten some wheat crops in 2020.
