Wheat breeders could soon play a key role in combating two of the country's most damaging wheat diseases through research that will enable them to more accurately select for resistant cultivars... Australia's most damaging wheat disease - tan (yellow) spot - annually causes national losses of $212 million, while the third most damaging wheat disease, Stagonospora (septoria) nodorum blotch, results in annual losses estimated at $108 million... Before the new marker is available, Professor Oliver urges growers to choose wheat varieties resistant to tan spot and septoria if they farm in areas prone to the diseases...

Stop the Spot unlocks clues for tackling crop disease.. Yellow spot, known overseas as tan spot, causes national wheat crop losses of $212 million, plus control costs of $463 million per annum... To assist the campaign, growers are urged to send in leaf samples of yellow spot, which will enable researchers at the Centre for Crop and Disease Management (CCDM) to develop genetic tools for breeders, monitor biosecurity risks and have an understanding of how the pathogen may be changing in the paddock...
