Wheat, sorghum, pulses (chickpea, peanut and mungbean), and sunflowers are very important components of the GRDC northern region farming systems, with a combined farmgate value of well over $1 billion pa... The first two crops are the mainstays of these systems, with pulses and sunflowers not only providing niche opportunities but also being break crops with significant soil nutrition and biology impacts... Diseases of the crops have considerable impacts on crop profitability and farm enterprise sustainability...

Sequencing of the genome of the blackleg fungus informs canola industry research The ground-breaking sequencing of the blackleg fungus genome is helping to direct ongoing canola industry research efforts... The sequencing of the genome of the blackleg fungus by a team of Australian and French scientists, announced earlier this year, is already having a positive impact on the canola industry through development of new approaches to predict disease outbreaks... Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Manager for Crop Protection, Dr Rohan Rainbow, says sequencing of the genome of the blackleg fungus will help researchers understand the fungus' rapid and potentially devastating genetic evolution and improve opportunities to explore alternate disease control mechanisms...

Moves to treat northern and southern faba bean production as a single industry - at least at the plant-breeding stage - is helping give new varieties in both regions a broader disease-resistance base... For example, Mr van Leur from the NSW Department of Primary Industries says that faba bean varieties bred for the northern region are sent to Mr Kimber at the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) so he can evaluate them for resistance to faba bean ascochyta blight (which is different to the disease that affects chickpeas)... "The entire industry has been undone in the past by breeding material that is susceptible to disease," Mr van Leur says...
