Rotation combats costly nematode issue.. The move to a cane/peanut crop rotation has dramatically changed the nature of farming for Bundaberg district growers Neville and Jason Loeskow over the past 20 years... "Survey work undertaken by Dr Graham Stirling from Biological Crop Protection found that plant parasitic nematodes were a much larger issue in cane growing regions than previously thought with Pratylenchus zeae found in every paddock sampled in the central coastal region of Queensland," Mr Halpin said...

One or more species of RLN (Root Lesion Nematode, Pratylenchus spp.) occur in at least 60% of WA cropping paddocks... The principal outputs of this project will be knowledge of wheat varieties which are more resistant to RLN (i.e. limit the multiplication of RLN under a crop) & more tolerant to RLN (i.e. yield loss incurred in a variety due to RLN is minimised)... RLN research in WA will continue to focus on management, principally through rotational recommendations for the deployment of cereal cultivars (& other host crops) with a level of resistance to each RLN that will benefit subsequent crop yields...

One or more species of RLN (Root Lesion Nematode, Pratylenchus spp.) occur in at least 60% of WA cropping paddocks... P. thornei occurs rarely; P. neglectus is the most frequent RLN identified in WA, occurring in at least 40% of paddocks; P. teres is found in 10% of paddocks... It is imperative that the species of RLN is correctly identified to enable growers to deploy appropriate crop varieties and species to minimise current and future losses...

There has been a considerable increase in the incidence of crops affected by root lesion nematode (RLN) throughout the Western Australian (WA) cropping region... The recent root disease survey showed that the highest levels of all root diseases in WA are in the southern high rainfall zone... The objectives of the project are to:1) Identify sites in WA that are suppressive to one or more root diseases of wheat including take-all, rhizoctonia root rot, crown rot and RLN. Sites will be selected from three past and current projects including the DAFWA "Profitable crop sequencing in WA" [P. WHITE, M. HARRIES] project (which will establish 150 focus sites at which inoculum level and disease incidence will be measured), the "Soil Quality" [D. MURPHY] project (which has previously established a large number of geo-referenced monitoring sites around the WA agricultural region and the inoculum level was measured), and the DAFWA 2006-2008 cereal root disease survey sites [DAW00159]...

Researchers get the dirt on nematodes.. Western Australian growers who suspect their crops are being damaged by root lesion nematodes (RLN) can confirm which species and population levels are present in problem areas by using in-season testing services this growing season... Research being conducted by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), aims to characterise differences between crop varieties in their resistance and tolerance to each species, which would allow growers to select appropriate cultivars to minimise yield losses...
