A damaging line-up of five crop pathogens can slash northern region chickpea yields when seasonal conditions are right but new prevention guidelines mean growers are better prepared... We advocate paddock selection to minimise phytophthora root rot as the first priority; then implementation of an appropriate ascochyta blight strategy based on rain forecasts and the level of varietal resistance," Dr Rainbow says. ".. Growers can use paddock selection to reduce inoculum by considering crop sequence, previous occurrence of diseases, proximity to crop residues, and herbicide history, he says...
