, if a pathogen change occurs where the ASR gene is overcome (such as Yr17 in the Western Ausralian pathotype lineage of wheat stripe rust in 2006), the APR gene/s provide back-up resistance, protecting the crop from catastrophic yield losses... In recent years, varieties have been released that lack ASR genes but carry several APR genes pyramided to provide excellent levels of stripe rust resistance as adult plants... Adult plants of LongReach Spitfire are only expected to lose a maximum of 30 per_cent of their leaf area to stripe rust infection...

Rotation cuts the high cost of nematodes.. Neil Halpin, Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) senior agronomist and project leader of the GRDC-funded Coastal Growers Solutions project, says nematode surveys have highlighted the severity and extent of the issue in the Bundaberg cropping region and the need for growers to consider a long-term rotational farming system... "Survey work undertaken by Dr Graham Stirling from Biological Crop Protection found that plant parasitic nematodes were a much larger issue in sugarcane-growing regions than previously thought with P. zeae found in every paddock sampled in the central coastal region of Queensland," Mr Halpin says...
