A major constraint to the grains industry is the pressure imposed by necrotrophic pathogens (ie pathogens which actively kill host tissue as they colonize and thrive on the contexts of dead and dying cells) and insect pests... R. solani is difficult to control by traditional methods as its broad host range makes crop rotations ineffective, there is an absence of strong resistance in crops and fungicide are often ineffective... The work will include sequencing and assembling the genome of R. solani AG8, the strain causing the greatest impact on Australian grain crops, and profiling the expression of plant and R. solani genes during infection of resistant and susceptible host plants...

The only available management options for other major pests, particularly podsucking bugs and podborers, have the potential to derail IPM because they are highly disruptive to beneficial insects... Additional major IPM issues are the ever present resistance threat to the new generation pesticides targeting Helicoverpa armigera, the eventual likely deregistration by the APVMA of dimethoate (the only effective mirid and aphicide in grain crops), and the ongoing need for multi-pest IPM to reduce the risk of silverleaf whitefly (SLW)... Ongoing RD&E is clearly needed to address these issues and to continually improve and maximise the adoption of IPM throughout the GRDC Northern Region...

Mr Murray said consumer demand for meat was behind the rise in feedgrain needs, with for example, consumption of chicken - a relatively cheap protein source - doubling between 1981 and today to 40 kilograms per person per year.
