The GRDC reports by Gordon M Murray and John P Brennan also state that breeding programs for Ascochyta blight management in chickpeas are preventing potential additional losses of $15.7m annually, while cultural practices and fungicides save the industry $6.9m and $12.4m respectively in Ascochyta losses each year... The current loss from diseases in oilseeds averages $137 million per year, or 27.6 per cent of the gross value of oilseed production, while pulse diseases are responsible for annual losses averaging $74 million per year, or 14.8 per cent of the gross value of Australian pulse production... Production losses due to diseases caused by fungi, nematodes, bacteria, viruses and phytoplasmas would be far higher without current controls such as the use of resistant varieties, crop rotation, paddock management and the use of pesticides, according to the reports...
