Caption: Leaf blotching in Bannister oats caused by septoria... Research has shown that foliar fungicides can significantly reduce the severity of the disease septoria blotch in Bannister oats and applications around the time of flag leaf emergence appear to be most effective... Mr Gray says that in lower disease situations, where infection hits the canopy later in the season, a single application at or around flag leaf emergence is likely to be able to protect crop leaves, help prevent infection developing in the mid and upper canopy and provide a yield benefit...

WA growers consulted during GRDC panel tours.. Key decision makers from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) hit the road in recent weeks to discuss a range of research, development and extension (RD&E) issues with Western Australian growers... Mr Clark said the tours were an opportunity to demonstrate how the GRDC was investing not only in new technologies relating to key issues such as herbicide resistance, frost, soil constraints, and crop rotations, but also in pre-emptive research defending farming systems from potential threats such as rust in cereals and blackleg in canola...

"The challenge for the GRDC is to enhance its engagement with those growers who don't already contribute through Regional Cropping Solutions Networks (RCSNs) and the western panel, so that they feel a greater connection with the GRDC and have a better understanding of how we are delivering value to them," he said... Mr Clark said the tours were an opportunity to demonstrate how the GRDC was investing not only in new technologies relating to key issues such as herbicide resistance, frost, soil constraints, and crop rotations, but also in pre-emptive research defending farming systems from potential threats such as rust in cereals and blackleg in canola... Mr Clark said that while growers indicated that GRDC investments reflected the key issues of importance to them, many wanted an increased focus on local issues such as variety-specific agronomy information...
