State of Western Australia, 2004 Agribusiness Crop Updates 2004 CONTENTS Page 2003 PULSE INDUSTRY HIGHLIGHTS .................................................................................... 1.. Previous research conducted by the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia established that blackspot of field pea (Mycosphaerella pinodes) is producing windborne ascospores through out the season... Eighty nine different grain legume lines; 22 desi chickpea, nine kabuli chickpea, 10 faba bean, 15 lentil, seven lupin and 26 field pea were evaluated under irrigated conditions at Medina Research Station in 2003...

Pre-sowing assessment of crown rot inoculum levels in paddocks is critical if growers and consultants are to avoid "flying blind" on agronomic management and maximise winter crop production potential... "Following below average summer rainfall for 2013-14 we undertook a Crown Analytical Stubble test for one of our clients near Edgeroi leading into the dry 2014 winter crop season as well as a PreDicta B test to assess Crown rot and nematode levels," Mr Miller said... "Following the results some necessary rotational adjustments to the farm program were made including selecting canola to assist in stubble degradation and the selection of a more crown rot tolerant wheat cultivar, Impala...

At least 60% of Western Australian (WA) cropping paddocks are infested with Root Lesion Nematode (RLN - Pratylenchus spp.)... Nematode levels from plots were measured following sowing and again in mid spring... The method can distinguish oat and lucerne races of Stem Nematode, which has not previously been possible...

x Make use of available testing services to determine nematode species and levels, but be aware that PreDicta-B cannot currently detect some of the nematodes present in WA crops... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 72.. Overall, lupin was resistant, but Mandelup and Belara resulted in a nematode multiplication rate > 1...

Root lesion nematodes (RLN) are proving to be at high levels in Western Australian cropping paddocks this year and growers are encouraged to have samples tested to help them manage the pest in coming seasons... Surveys conducted by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), with support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), showed that RLN caused widespread damage in every WA cropping zone last year... "RLN species were found in 90 per cent of 130 paddocks surveyed, and in 48 per cent of paddocks the nematode levels were high enough to cause 15 to 50 per cent yield loss," DAFWA researcher Sarah Collins said...
