The barley and wheat cultivars bred for the Northern Region are routinely tested for their tolerance to herbicides in three stages... Prior to release and commercialisation, the cultivars are screened with six standard herbicides; Ally, 2,4-D, Glean, MCPA LVE, Starane and Tordon242 for wheat; and Achieve, Ally, 2,4-D, MCPA LVE, Starane and Tordon242 for barley... The paper presents the results on the herbicide tolerance of the new barley and wheat cultivars that have been released in the last five years...

Stripe rust management Prevention is generally best - Grains Research &amp; Development Corporation </title> <meta name="GRDC.Tags" value=""> <meta name="Keywords" value="Wheat, stripe rust, leaf disease, fungicides, yield, 0, Stripe rust management Prevention is generally best"> <meta name="Description" value=" Richard Daniel, Northern Grower Alliance (NGA) &bull; Early or preventative foliar sprays, applied from GS32 onwards on moderately susceptible varieties, have provided the best returns in northern trials over the last three years &bull; High grain prices and low fungicide costs mean breakeven yield benefits required are often only 1-2% &bull; Application can be the major cost of treatment &bull.. Fungicide recommendations for stripe rust management have been based on disease threshold levels on specific leaves... This was a sensible strategy given high fungicide costs, low grain prices and the need for higher levels of yield benefit to generate economic returns...
