Caption: Leaf blotching in Bannister oats caused by septoria... Research has shown that foliar fungicides can significantly reduce the severity of the disease septoria blotch in Bannister oats and applications around the time of flag leaf emergence appear to be most effective... Mr Gray says that in lower disease situations, where infection hits the canopy later in the season, a single application at or around flag leaf emergence is likely to be able to protect crop leaves, help prevent infection developing in the mid and upper canopy and provide a yield benefit...

On-farm trials in Western Australia's South Coast region have highlighted the importance of growers testing deep tillage treatments on small areas before deciding whether to apply them to larger areas... Trials were undertaken at three sites using various types of rippers and configurations for depth and spacing, including machinery depths to 20cm, 30cm and 40cm and tyne spacings of 30cm and 60cm... "The results reinforce the importance of doing small plot trials before applying invasive treatments across paddocks, as well as knowing the characteristics of the subsoil and using an experienced machinery operator - to minimise the risks of negative impacts such as bringing too much clay or rock to the surface," she said...
