Plain text source: 
* Bannister oats are subject to Plant Breeders Rights Caption: GRDC's Kwinana West Port Zone Regional Cropping Solutions Network (RCSN) group funded trials into fungicide management of septoria leaf blotch on Bannister oats last year, carried out by ConsultAg's Ashton Gray and Garren Knell... Using fungicides to control septoria leaf blotch in Bannister oats may improve crop yields when good spring rain is received, but can't be relied on to reduce grain staining at the end of the season... Ashton says, given the trials were deliberately carried out where disease pressure was high, it appears that using a double-spray can be economic in high yield-potential crops in a year with a wet finish and when infection occurs at/after stem extension...
