Plain text source: 
Net blotch is expected to be at damaging levels in Western Australian barley crops this year, particularly in high rainfall areas, but growers can reduce the risks by adopting an integrated disease management approach... "There is a high risk of damage to 2014 barley crops due to carry-over of the disease from last year, heavy stubble loads and warm conditions forecast for coming months," he said...
