Watch and be prepared to act on cereal rust.. DAFWA researchers across the WA wheatbelt are closely monitoring volunteer cereals and emerging cereal crops for the presence of leaf rust - as well as other diseases, viruses and pests... Geoff Thomas advises growers and advisers to monitor volunteers, particularly of S varieties such as Stiletto, and to be prepared if fungicide management of leaf rust is required this season...

Watch and be prepared to act on cereal rust.. It is recommended WA growers and advisers closely monitor advanced cereal volunteers and emerging cereal crops for the presence of leaf rusts ( Puccinia triticina and Puccinia hordei ) this season - along with other rust diseases, viruses and pests... Geoff Thomas advises growers and advisers to monitor volunteers, particularly of S varieties such as Stiletto, and to be prepared if fungicide management of leaf rust is required this season...

The campaign - called the Rust Bust - is supported by the GRDC and gives growers tips on more effectively managing rust and adopting a 'select and protect' strategy... "This year, wheat growers in eastern Australia face an unprecedented risk of stripe, stem and leaf rust because of increased inoculum levels in crops during 2010 and the potential for carryover on volunteer plants, called the green bridge, thriving following high summer rainfall," he says... "A rust outbreak in Australia has the potential to slash farm incomes which is why it is so vital we plan our response to rust this year at the beginning of the season, rather than waiting for a rust outbreak to occur and then planning a control approach," he says...

Monitoring populations of cereal rust pathogens to determine which crop varieties show signs of rust infection, which pathotypes (strains or races) are present and where they occur plays an important role in plant breeding for rust resistance around the world... Photo of stem showing wheat rust disease.. After laboratory analysis, growers will be notified of the pathotypes contained in the sample about three weeks later...

Grain growers are being urged to start monitoring this year's emerging crops for rust and prepare a rust-management plan following early detections of severe stem rust in volunteer wheat crops in the southern region... "In developing a rust-management plan, growers should also revisit the susceptibility of the varieties they have selected to grow and tailor their action plan to the level of resistance present.".. "There is plenty of help available if growers are not sure how susceptible their varieties are or which is the best approach to take - check with your local agronomist, plant pathologist, your regional variety guide or visit the Rust Bust website ( www.rustbust.com.au ) or the National Variety Trials website ( www.nvtonline.com.au )...

SARDI Cereal Pathologist Dr Hugh Wallwork has received reports of stripe rust and leaf rust in wheat, and net form net blotch and spot form net blotch in barley... While similar, the symptoms of stripe rust will appear in a line (top), whereas leaf rust appears as single pustules or more random groups of pustules (bottom)... The complication is that while Mace is not as susceptible to leaf rust, the disease has been seen in Mace, so it's not just a matter of any rust on Mace wheat being stripe rust."..

Dr Grant Hollaway in a paddock of self-sown barley heavily infected with stem rust and leaf rust, which provides a 'green bridge' for these rust pathogens to survive between cropping cycles... The region comprises a tapestry of overlapping crops at all growth stages, providing an ideal environment for rust to flourish... Growers should also consider the use of fungicide applied to seed or fertiliser in districts known to have rust surviving on volunteers...
