Growers warned of new leaf rust pathotype in WA.. An eastern Australian wheat leaf rust pathotype has been identified in four diverse regions across Western Australia (WA), reminding growers that long-distance movement of rust inoculum is a serious threat to crop health and hygiene... "Wyalkatchem may shift from R-MR to MS and Emu Rock from R to MS-S following further testing at the ACRCP. Some varieties have other leaf rust genes that are expected to still be effective so have a lesser rating shift- King Rock, Fortune and Zippy are likely to shift from R/MR to MRMS. Cultivars Carnamah and Cobra may also be vulnerable to the new pathotype but further tests are needed to establish their responses more accurately...

"Action needs to be taken promptly against barley leaf rust because, once established, it is very difficult to control," Dr Jayasena said... Dr Jayasena said the new barley leaf rust pathotype (5457 P-) was identified in WA in 2013 in WA's southern cropping districts, and had resulted in reduced resistance to leaf rust in several varieties known to carry the Rph3 resistance gene in WA... Dr Jayasena said that in addition to barley leaf rust, other barley diseases growers should look out for this year included net blotch, scald and powdery mildew...

Growers need to be vigilant in checking their crops for the disease and be aware that varieties which carry the Lr13 (such as Wyalkatchem, Corack and Emu Rock) and Lr17a (Fortune) gene may now be compromised and require additional management...
