Pulse and oilseed diseases which cost growers in the southern cropping region tens of millions of dollars every year are being tackled head-on through a suite of research programs being funded by the Grain Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... The GRDC is taking a three-pronged approach to disease prevention and management by: developing oilseed and pulse varieties with greater resistance to foliar fungal diseases; keeping abreast of fungal disease dynamics; and developing and extending management packages to control foliar fungal diseases on-farm and prolong the useful life of Australia's fungicide options... Variety resistance is the most sustainable way to manage fungal diseases - a principle that guides the GRDC's ongoing and substantial commitment to finding new genes that confer disease resistance to Australian crop varieties...
