fungicide strategy

Categorised under:

Catalogue: GRDC Media
Adult plant resistance (APR) to cereal fungal diseases is an important trait for grain growers to consider when choosing varieties to sow... APR can complement a fungicide strategy by protecting, from diseases such as rust, those parts of the plant most responsible for yield... Adult plant resistance is a useful trait to consider in variety selection, and understanding how it works can make fungicide application decisions easier...

Remember APR when selecting varieties.. Varieties carrying APR genes are protected from rust during the post-seedling stage of crop development, typically between tillering and booting (growth stages 20-49)... PHOTO CAPTION: Northern region grain growers are being reminded to consider adult plant resistance (APR) to fungal diseases such as stem, stripe and leaf rust, when retaining seed this harvest for next year's crop...

Varieties carrying APR genes are protected from rust during the post-seedling stage of crop development, typically between tillering and booting (growth stages 20-49)... Professor Robert Park, from the Australian Cereal Rust Control Program, said because the timing and effectiveness of APR varies from gene to gene, it varies from variety to variety depending upon which gene(s) are present...

If fungicides are required, make sure they are applied in the early stages of the epidemic... Spot form of net blotch (SFNB) was the dominant foliar disease of barley, causing yield and quality losses where susceptible varieties were grown in infected stubble and left untreated... In addition to mixing or rotation of fungicides an integrated approach to disease control that includes crop rotation and avoidance of susceptible cultivars will reduce inoculum loads, and reduce the likelihood of resistance to fungicides developing...
