" Distribution and survival of wheat curl mite (Aceria tosichella), vector of Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus, in the WA grainbelt during 2008... Volunteer wheat collected during April to July, which was at the heading growth stage, were 100% infested with wheat curl mite (Aceria tosichella; WCM)... For such situations we propose the control of volunteer wheat and other grass hosts by ensuring this material is dead or removed by grazing by at least two weeks prior to germination of the sown wheat crop...

Wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV) causes significant losses to wheat especially in North America... We have new molecular markers (tags) for one resistance needing validation, and in collaboration with North American colleagues, we plan to develop a marker for at least one of the other resistances... Once we have the three resistances in Australian wheat backgrounds it is important to confirm that the presence of the resistances has no detrimental effect on grain quality or on yield in the absence of WSMV disease...
