stalk rot

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
Long-term monoculture of a susceptible host results an increase in the numbers of microsclerotes in a paddock... Sclerotia of S. sclerotiorum germinate during cool, wet weather and either directly infect the base of plants at ground level or produce fruiting bodies in which ascospores are produced... The finding contrasts with recent work which shows that Fusarium thapsinum and F. andihazi are responsible for most cases of fusarium stalk rot in northern NSW and ...

Rots in maize can be caused by a wide range of fungal pathogens... Like the stalk rot phase, it is more common in wetter, cooler growing regions... Polysora rust is favoured by warm wet weather and is a disease of tropical regions...

To date, almost 570 Fusarium isolates have been collected at 92 sites from sorghum stalks, seedlings, panicles (heads) and stubble of commercial crops, with just over 500 isolates identified to species... There were no significant differences in yield between treatments in any of the three trials, indicating that fusarium stalk rot did not cause yield loss in the absence of lodging after the "soft" finishes experienced in the trials... The use of desiccant herbicide to aid in harvesting should be carefully evaluated in paddocks where sorghum stalk-rotting pathogens have been found in the past...
