Pulse and oilseed diseases which cost growers in the southern cropping region tens of millions of dollars every year are being tackled head-on through a suite of research programs being funded by the Grain Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... The GRDC is taking a three-pronged approach to disease prevention and management by: developing oilseed and pulse varieties with greater resistance to foliar fungal diseases; keeping abreast of fungal disease dynamics; and developing and extending management packages to control foliar fungal diseases on-farm and prolong the useful life of Australia's fungicide options... Variety resistance is the most sustainable way to manage fungal diseases - a principle that guides the GRDC's ongoing and substantial commitment to finding new genes that confer disease resistance to Australian crop varieties...

Wheat exports to South-East Asia have doubled in the past five years and new processing techniques being developed in Malaysia could help oilseeds and lupins follow the same trajectory.. South-East Asia is a well-established and expanding market for Australian wheat growers, but for Malaysia's Soon Soon Group of companies there is also "tremendous potential" for Australian canola, soybeans and lupins in human foods and animal feeds... Buyers say the greatest opportunity for Australia lies in producing a wheat that performs favourably against US and Canadian varieties in the bread sector, which is the fastest-growing market sector in South-East Asia...
