Dr Simpfendorfer told the recent GRDC Update at Goondiwindi that growers and advisors should plan rust strategies now to ensure a wet autumn does not hamper cereal crop yield... "Inclusion of a fungicide when performing an in-crop weed spray around mid-tillering (GS25) in wheat crops has become a fairly common practice commercially in much of northern NSW for managing stripe rust," Dr Simpfendorfer said... Dr Simpfendorfer says delaying the first fungicide application to GS32, when the Flag-2 leaf has emerged, protects this leaf from infection and reduces the time and subsequent disease build-up until application of the second spray at full flag leaf emergence (GS39)...

Detections of fusarium crown rot in Western Australian cereal crops have increased this season, particularly in central and northern cropping regions... The Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) has reported constant demand this season on its diagnostic service, AGWEST Plant Laboratories (APL), to identify root diseases including crown rot present in samples... The key message to growers from DAFWA researchers including Daniel H berli and Shahajahan Miyan is to test wheat and barley crops before or at harvest if they are showing signs of crown rot or other soilborne diseases and pests such as rhizoctonia bare patch and root lesion nematodes (RLN)...

Yields lift rewards soil work.. , Jeff says soil inversion by mouldboard ploughing on 200ha of non-wetting country in 2010 and 2011 has made a big difference to crop performance in areas where germination and plant vigour had been very poor... Mr Cahill says even at a cost of $230 to $250/ha, spreading lime, deep-ripping and using soil inversion tactics pay off in the first year due to these higher grain yields...

Stop disease and pest cycles in their tracks with crop checks this harvest.. Growers are being urged to test wheat and barley crops before or at harvest that are showing signs of soilborne diseases and pests - especially fusarium crown rot, rhizoctonia bare patch and root lesion nematodes (RLN)... Crown rot is caused by the soilborne fungus fusarium ( F. pseudograminearum and F. culmorum ), which infects plants at the crown and reduces water supply to the head...
