WHITE GRAIN ADVICE: Recent wet and humid conditions in South Australia and Victoria could be conducive to the Botryosphaeria fungal disease infecting grain heads and causing white grain formation... Growers in areas where white grain was an issue last year - particularly the Upper North and eastern Eyre Peninsula in SA and parts of Victoria - are advised to keep an eye out for white head formation in their wheat and barley crops and, where detected, determine whether the symptoms have been caused by Botryosphaeria, crown rot or some other factor... It is expected that the disease will only cause problems under humid spring conditions but research funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) in SA and Queensland will help to identify the conditions required for damage more precisely," said Dr Wallwork, whose research into cereal diseases is supported by growers and the Australian Government through the GRDC. White grain caused by the Botryosphaeria fungus contains no toxins, retains much of its nutritional value and can be safely fed to livestock...
