Losses from leaf rust can be reduced by grazing or cutting rusted crops before the disease becomes severe... Adjust the intensity of grazing to avoid the extremes where the crop is either eaten into the ground, or becomes rank and prematurely runs to head... Avoid grazing the crop when the soil is very wet as the crown and root will be damaged and regrowth will be slow and reduced...

HRZ growers urged to be prepared for STB threat.. Mr Poole says rusts are a "puppy" compared to STB because fungicides do not achieve the same level of control as seen with stripe rust in Australia, and because the disease has a longer latent period which makes it more difficult to determine its progress... With the STB pathogen becoming resistant to strobilurins and triazoles in other parts of world and with evidence that the pathogen in southern Australia has some of the early stage resistance mutations to triazoles, Mr Poole is urging growers to use an IDM strategy and not base control on fungicides alone...

"In looking at fungicide options, bear in mind the recent discovery by Dr Andrew Milgate at New South Wales Department of Primary Industries of strains of the disease that show mutations conferring reduced sensitivity (low level resistance) to a number of triazole fungicides," Mr Poole said...

The factors are important in trying to understand the trends measured in this project... Grains Research Update - August 04 Wellington investigations to either confirm traditional research or provide an opportunity to develop scientifically sound methodologies to compare what is happening in a real world situation... I believe using less fertiliser is better, to encourage better micro organism activity, but that's my guess...

Products may be identified by proprietary or trade names to help readers identify particular types of products but this is not, and is not intended to be, an endorsement or recommendation of any product or manufacturer referred to... As we improved the fencing we were able to manipulate and control the grazing, using mobs of between 3,000-12,000 goats in paddocks that ranged in size from 1200-4000 hectares keeping them there while they were browsing on the thick woody plants and moving them out when they started to graze the ground cover... When their movements are constrained by fencing, goats utilise their capacity to consume a wide spectrum of the vegetation on offer and unless adequate and effective rest from grazing is provided, land degradation will occur as illustrated in Figure 7...

Destroy volunteer wheat plants by March, as they can provide a greenbridge for rust carryover... The spores require 15 to 20 C temperature and free moisture (dew/rain/irrigation) on the leaves to successfully infect wheat... Stem rust develops at higher temperatures than the other wheat rusts within a range of 18-30 C. Spores require free moisture (dew, rain or irrigation) and take up to six hours to infect the plant and pustules can be seen after 10-20 days of infection...
