For many years, Australian and New Zealand scientists worked together closely to identify the cereal rust pathotypes (strains or races) that occurred in each country... Support from the GRDC, the Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre (PBCRC) and the Foundation for Arable Research (FAR) has enabled researchers at the Australian Cereal Rust Control Program (ACRCP), Plant & Food Research (PFR) and FAR to join forces in gaining understanding of the cereal rust pathotypes that now occur in New Zealand and how these relate to those in Australia... Findings from the preliminary research are consistent with earlier research showing strong evidence that cereal rust inoculum is regularly exchanged between the two countries, mostly from Australia to New Zealand on prevailing winds, but also, less frequently, by some unknown mechanism in the opposite direction...

Mr Hawthorne (pictured) said tebuconazole had previously been approved for application early in the crop cycle to control the fungal disease cercospora, but now it could also be applied later in the season to control both cercospora and rust... "While other products are available to control rust, having another option means growers can choose a cheaper product and are able to rotate fungicide groups to avoid resistance developing to a particular chemical group."..
