For example, at Dubbo 407 mm of rain fell on 68 days (39 days >1.0mm) between 01 June and 30 November, compared with a long-term average of 282 mm on 43 days (34 days >1.0mm)... The pattern encouraged rapid vegetative growth of crops and was ideal for the build-up and spread of the major chickpea pathogens... Ascochyta blight (AB, caused by Ascochyta rabiei ), Botrytis grey mould (BGM, caused by Botrytis cinerea ), Phytophthora root rot (PRR, caused by Phytophthora medicaginis ) and Sclerotinia rot (caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor ) were widespread and severe in many crops...

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...
