Victorian field pea growers can now access information online to assist in reducing the risk of blackspot infection in this year's crops... Supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), the Blackspot Manager model for Victoria was developed by Dr Moin Salam of Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia, and is run in conjunction with the Victorian Department of Environment and Primary Industries... Mature blackspot spores are released into the air from infected stubble following a rainfall event...

The SMS service will give growers direct information about sowing dates that offer the best potential for reducing blackspot in field pea crops," said Ms Davidson... Blackspot Manager was developed by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia, to predict the release pattern of airborne spores for different regions in an individual season... Ms Davidson said other factors that assist in minimising the incidence of blackspot include avoiding planting pea crops adjacent to pea stubbles and avoiding water logging...

"Using the extensive evaluation enables the Blackspot Manager to predict disease on a farm or a catchment basis.".. To account for this, the South Australian Disease Risk model (DIRI) brings together management factors such as the number of years since a pea crop was grown in a specific paddock, variety, the use of seed dressings and rainfall data... "Our model not only allows growers to see the impact of adjusting sowing date on the level of blackspot disease risk, but also of paddock choice and the use or omission of a seed dressing."..

Downy mildew is one of the most common fungal diseases of field peas in Victoria, and often causes substantial reduction in plant numbers in cool wet seasons... Thick grey fungal growth on the lower leaf surface, is typical of downy mildew.. The disease is most common soon after seedling emergence, but it may affect plants at any stage of growth especially during periods of moist, cool weather...

" Pulse germplasm enhancement - vegetative and reproductive frost tolerance in pulse crops DAS00066 Start Date: 01/01/2006.. The final year of this project was used to confirm earlier findings and develop the concept of field-based screening for phase II of the germplasm enhancement (GE) program linked to Pulse Breeding Australia (PBA)... The expected outcome of this project was the development of frost tolerant germplasm in field peas, chickpeas and lentils which could be used to develop new varieties that would ultimately sustain and expand the pulse crop production area and provide increased yield and improved grain quality...

Pulse Breeding Australia will conduct a world class field pea breeding program that will deliver superior new varieties with increased productivity and profitability for field pea growers and which will expand the crops adaptation range in Australia... The program will aim to combine desirable genetic variation that will increase grain yield potential, reduce crop input costs, reduce crop risk and maintain grain market access... The PBA field pea breeding program will deliver superior field pea varieties for the major field pea production zones over the next 5 year period that combine improved yield potential and reliability, disease resistance (e.g. virus, mildew, blackspot, bacterial blight), adaptation (e.g. plant type, flowering habit, soil boron toxicity tolerance) and suitable grain for end use markets (e.g. Kaspa type, Dun type)...
