Vigilance call for barley leaf rust.. Mr Platz urges growers to be alert to the risks of a leaf rust outbreak: "The risks may be low this season, but that's no reason to become complacent," he says. ".. "Managing the disease requires a community effort, so if a grower locates leaf rust they should alert their regional departmental pathologist so a general alert can be issued," Mr Platz says...

The genetics of brewing better beer.. Genetic analysis shows that malting barley grown under Australian conditions requires a finer balance between malting quality and pre-harvest sprouting tolerance than its Canadian counterparts.. The market has a strong preference for the malting flavour of Canadian barley and is often willing to pay a $50-per-tonne premium for it...

Genetic analysis in barley suggests that the Rrs1 gene locus is a region that either hosts a suite of different scald resistance genes or numerous alleles of this gene exist in barley germplasm... Modern tools to identify desirable breeding traits are molecular markers that indicate the presence or absence of a gene that is responsible for the trait... Aligning the disease scores from each progeny line with its genetic fingerprint information revealed those fingerprint signals (molecular markers) that predict the resistance of a progeny plant most accurately...

Scald is more likely to be a problem when a susceptible barley variety is sown into infected stubble from a previous crop or when infected barley grass is present... Scald can be managed using an integrated approach that includes avoiding susceptible varieties, delaying early sowing, using seed dressings and not sowing into infected crop residues... Scald can be effectively controlled using an integrated approach encompassing variety selection, cultural practices, time of sowing, seed treatment and foliar fungicides...
