rhizoctonia bare patch

Catalogue: GRDC Updates (West)
When sowing to wheat or another cereal in a paddock with a previous history of Rhizoctonia bare-patch, using cultivation below the seed (~10 cm) and a registered fungicide can reduce disease impact... A break crop of canola or a chemical fallow may be useful for reducing Rhizoctonia inoculum in the soil prior to sowing a cereal crop... EverGol Prime and Vibrance have been evaluated as seed treatments to suppress Rhizoctonia in field trials conducted by DAFWA and SARDI in 2011 and 2012 (Table 1)...

Consider rhizoctonia seed treatments to boost cereal yields.. Daniel says the take home messages from the trials are that in-furrow banding of fungicide 2-3cm below the seed can provide protection to crop seminal roots and surface banding behind the press wheel can protect the crown roots... Daniel says there are some promising fungicide banding treatment options for rhizoctonia in the pipeline that performed well in the trials...

Inoculum levels in the medium rainfall zone of the western region have been increasing in the last few years... The disease is caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG8, a fungus that grows on crop residues and soil organic matter and is adapted to dry conditions and lower fertility soils... The fungus causes crop damage by pruning newly emerged roots (spear-tipped roots) which can occur from emergence to crop maturity...
