    New stripe rust challenges

    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.

    Crop disease management in focus at Victorian workshops

    Victorian growers and agronomists are being offered cereal and canola disease management advice through workshops in Horsham and Melbourne in March.

  • National disease surveillance guides management
    Diseases, 10 Mar 2021
    National disease surveillance guides management

    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.

  • Know your disease risk before your sow in 2021

    DNA testing innovation to reveal new insights

    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.

  • Disease-resistant oats support bright future for crop
    Diseases, 03 Mar 2021
    Disease-resistant oats support bright future for crop

    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.
