Rusts The cold winter, dry spring and widespread use of fungicides when needed kept foliar pathogens at generally low levels during 2012... With a change of seasonal conditions in 2013 the risk of, and damage from, stripe rust could be much greater so growers are urged to remain vigilant with in-furrow treatments or early fungicide sprays to control this disease... Should growers decide to apply early protection for stripe rust they can choose cheaper seed treatments containing flutriafol or triadimenol or longer acting treatments based on fluquinconazole or fertiliser- applied fungicides...

Consider rhizoctonia seed treatments to boost cereal yields.. Daniel says the take home messages from the trials are that in-furrow banding of fungicide 2-3cm below the seed can provide protection to crop seminal roots and surface banding behind the press wheel can protect the crown roots... Daniel says there are some promising fungicide banding treatment options for rhizoctonia in the pipeline that performed well in the trials...

The capacity of the plant to take up potassium is not directly related to potassium in solution... Spraying is best done when there is some wind, and when the operator can be sure that wind direction has stabilised... Driftability of amine formulations The 2,4- D products Surpass and Amicide 625 which were used in the trial are considered to be nonvolatile any drift that is associated with these products will be droplet drift not vapour drift...

Until such varieties are released, northern growers and advisers need to select varieties firstly on the basis of crown rot risk and then manage for stripe rust ... There is a risk of WSMV being spread through infected seed into new areas... We have not been able to determine an economic threshold for RGB in sorghum from these trials...

Red-legged earthmites (RLEM) cause millions of dollars of damage to crops each year, and due to a cool start to the growing season causing the pests to hatch in April, now is the time for RLEM control... SARDI entomology researcher Kym Perry says growers should not assume that preventative treatments applied at sowing will be an effective solution against pests... RLEM attacks most crops and feeds on all stages of plants, though is particularly damaging to seedlings in autumn...

The potential for epidemic development can be gauged by the amount of disease in the lower canopy... Cereal seed treatments are widely used throughout the Northern Grains Region (NGR) to control or suppress a broad range of diseases... With a range of diseases that are more difficult to control and a grain fill period less predisposed to drought stress there may be more benefit to strobilurins in barley crops rather than wheat, though more work is needed to verify this statement...
