infected grain

Catalogue: GRDC Project Summaries
White grain disorder (WGD) was first recorded in Australia in 1999 in Queensland and since that time has been identified in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia... The symptoms associated with WGD in wheat in Australia are similar in some respects to those produced by Fusarium head blight (FHB)... It is also expected that grain marketers and importing countries could downgrade or not buy infected grain due to this similarity in the visual symptoms produce by FHB and WGD...

Following its emergence in the southern grain-growing region in the past two seasons, a large number of grain loads infected with the disease have been rejected based on visual assessments... Laboratory testing is needed to identify the fungal disease in cereal residues... The Ground Cover supplement on emerging issues with diseases, weeds and pests provides details of what is being done to manage these threats while also acting as an alert for regions where the threats are emerging...

Heads of wheat showing FHB bleached kernals.. The fungi persist and produce spores on previous crop residues of wheat, barley and corn (Figure 5 and Figure 6) although other grass weeds and crops can also be a source of inoculum... Use of fungicides has proven a useful tool in reducing infections overseas where reductions in FHB severity of 50-60% can be achieved when the most effective fungicides are applied at early flowering for wheat and durum, and at early head emergence in barley...
