An important part of keeping one step ahead of ever-changing fungal rust pathogens has been to monitor the pathotypes that occur in Australia and to determine their impact on current and yet-to-be-released cultivars. This approach has been particularly successful in meeting the challenges posed by new rust pathotypes that arise locally via, for example, random mutation.

Each year, pathologists from around Australia survey the incidence of disease in paddocks to stay abreast of developing issues and prioritise growers’ needs. The surveys also guide the development of disease management packages and new varieties with improved resistance.

Growers can minimise the yield impact of cereal diseases this year by managing three key factors – the host, the pathogen and the environment.

GRDC aims to reduce the impact of cereal diseases on grain production by supporting accurate disease identification, the deployment of disease-resistant genetic material via Australian breeding programs, and the provision of effective disease management strategies.

New DNA testing protocols to support surveillance programs are enabling a better understanding of pathogen incidence and distribution. The results are contributing new insights to inform disease research and management protocols.

Growing demand from health-conscious consumers is leading to improved economic returns to growers and an increase in the area sown to oats. Further improving yield stability and disease resistance in oats will help growers capitalise on these opportunities.
