Barley growers in the Great Southern and South Coast regions of Western Australia are urged to test plants suspected of having net type net blotch (NTNB) this season to help confirm a new pathotype of this fungal disease... The Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA) is conducting GRDC-funded research to verify information about NTNB pathotypes and is seeking samples of infected plant material... Seedling tests conducted by fellow DAFWA/Murdoch University pathologists Sanjiv Gupta and Jason Bradley indicated that other varieties that may also be more susceptible to NTNB include Hindmarsh , La Trobe , Scope CL and, possibly, Rosalind ...

Collective action can minimise barley disease losses.. "Strategies that can help minimise the risk of yield losses include destroying the 'green bridge' including barley volunteers and weeds (to reduce rust carry-over); using appropriate seeding strategies; monitoring emerging crops for signs of disease; and considering using a registered foliar fungicide if the variety is susceptible to the diseases found," Dr Jayasena said... "I encourage growers to monitor the early development of crops for leaf disease symptoms and to consider using a registered foliar fungicide if the variety is susceptible to the diseases found," Dr Jayasena said...

Caption: Leaf blotching in Bannister oats caused by septoria... Research has shown that foliar fungicides can significantly reduce the severity of the disease septoria blotch in Bannister oats and applications around the time of flag leaf emergence appear to be most effective... Mr Gray says that in lower disease situations, where infection hits the canopy later in the season, a single application at or around flag leaf emergence is likely to be able to protect crop leaves, help prevent infection developing in the mid and upper canopy and provide a yield benefit...
