Long-term monoculture of a susceptible host results an increase in the numbers of microsclerotes in a paddock... Sclerotia of S. sclerotiorum germinate during cool, wet weather and either directly infect the base of plants at ground level or produce fruiting bodies in which ascospores are produced... The finding contrasts with recent work which shows that Fusarium thapsinum and F. andihazi are responsible for most cases of fusarium stalk rot in northern NSW and ...

"Growers can save themselves a lot of time and money spent on eradication and management by preventing diseases getting into crops in the first place," said Dr Ryley, from the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF)... If diseases do get into the crop, knowledge about what diseases are around is the best information to be armed with, he said... For example, prevent contaminated soil or plant residues entering the property by: not letting contract headers and other machinery onto their property unless the equipment has been properly cleaned; monitoring visitors to properties - for example, ensuring visitors contact the owner or manager before visiting, not driving vehicles across the property but rather leaving them at the shed and using an on-farm vehicle; and knowing where planting seed has come from and ensuring only seed from a clean crop is used...

To date, almost 570 Fusarium isolates have been collected at 92 sites from sorghum stalks, seedlings, panicles (heads) and stubble of commercial crops, with just over 500 isolates identified to species... There were no significant differences in yield between treatments in any of the three trials, indicating that fusarium stalk rot did not cause yield loss in the absence of lodging after the "soft" finishes experienced in the trials... The use of desiccant herbicide to aid in harvesting should be carefully evaluated in paddocks where sorghum stalk-rotting pathogens have been found in the past...

It can cause significant yield loss if it develops before or at flowering, particularly if the crop is under moisture stress... There are strategies to minimise the risk of TSV infection: maintain farm hygiene, in particular the control of parthenium weed avoid planting mungbeans close to pastures, particularly those containing dense parthenium and other broadleaf weed infestations if crops are planted close to parthenium infested pastures either spray out pasture close to the mungbean crop or leave a buffer avoid planting mungbeans into marginal moisture, especially near parthenium infested pasture ensure planting seed is from crops with no signs of TSV...
