Growers and consultants are acutely aware that management strategies for the likes of weed and disease control can't simply be considered on a short-term seasonal basis, they need to be planned according to their implications for the farming system as a whole... For management of disease carryover it is critical to understand the risk factors associated with individual diseases and the potential impact practices like strategic tillage might have, especially if disease posed a problem in the previous season... Research backed by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has found that inter-row sowing between the old cereal rows can provide a physical separation between the new plant and the infected stubble, helping manage the build-up of pathogens like crown rot when used as part of a crop rotation strategy...
