Plant pathologists have leapt to the defence of wheat variety, Sunvale , with a warning that some seed lots may be contaminated with rust-susceptible varieties... Dr Simpfendorfer says observations of high levels of impurity in commercial Sunvale are not surprising given that it is a 17-year-old variety... "Growers need to take more care in ensuring variety purity and correct identification of seed lots for planting," Dr Simpfendorfer said...

Assuming a single soil evaporation parameter to benchmark water use efficiency is a very coarse simplification, and possibly the main source of error in estimating water use efficiency using the French and Schultz approach... Selecting a variety to match to a time of sowing so that flowering occurs during the flowering window is an important management decision to improve yield and water use efficiency... The effect of sowing rate on water use efficiency in winter cereals is strongly influenced by the amount of soil moisture leading into spring...

Recently the top five diseases in wheat and barley have been estimated to cost growers in the northern region $261 million annually (wheat $183 m and barley $78 m, Murray and Brennan 2009)... The unit has a long history of effectively developing and delivering IDM strategies to support industry in minimising losses to and reducing the risk of the key cereal and pulse diseases in the region... Minimise risk of virus by retaining standing stubble, planting on time and at optimal seeding rate for rapid canopy closure...

Photograph or mosaic-like symptoms characteristic of wheat streak mosaic virus infection of wheat.. To minimise the effect of diseases: use partially resistant varieties use disease-free seed use fungicidal seed treatments to kill fungi carried on the seed coat or in the seed keep farm free from weeds which may carry over some diseases rotate crops... During the period between summer harvest and planting of the next wheat crop, WSMV persists in the 'green bridge' of volunteer wheat plants and other grasses...
