Detections of fusarium crown rot in Western Australian cereal crops have increased this season, particularly in central and northern cropping regions... The Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) has reported constant demand this season on its diagnostic service, AGWEST Plant Laboratories (APL), to identify root diseases including crown rot present in samples... The key message to growers from DAFWA researchers including Daniel H berli and Shahajahan Miyan is to test wheat and barley crops before or at harvest if they are showing signs of crown rot or other soilborne diseases and pests such as rhizoctonia bare patch and root lesion nematodes (RLN)...

Partners in Grain (PinG) New South Wales recently organised a study tour to Western Australia to observe farming system innovations that may be adapted for farming operations in the eastern states... "Growers often work in isolation and travelling with peers is a fantastic opportunity for sharing ideas and knowledge," Ms Thomas said... In the post-tour survey: 81 per cent of the group said they had a greater understanding of the use of data to drive business decisions 59 per cent felt their knowledge of advanced farming systems had improved 63 per cent believed they now had a better understanding of the benefits and limitations of herbicide resistance and weed control 27 per cent said they had acquired more knowledge of management practices to prevent herbicide resistance..
