The campaign - called the Rust Bust - is supported by the GRDC and gives growers tips on more effectively managing rust and adopting a 'select and protect' strategy... "This year, wheat growers in eastern Australia face an unprecedented risk of stripe, stem and leaf rust because of increased inoculum levels in crops during 2010 and the potential for carryover on volunteer plants, called the green bridge, thriving following high summer rainfall," he says... "A rust outbreak in Australia has the potential to slash farm incomes which is why it is so vital we plan our response to rust this year at the beginning of the season, rather than waiting for a rust outbreak to occur and then planning a control approach," he says...

With winter crop sowing well underway across New South Wales, wheat growers are being reminded to stay vigilant on stripe rust... NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) senior plant pathologist Dr Steven Simpfendorfer has two key messages for growers as the season progresses - monitor crops regularly for any signs of rust infection and tailor fungicide strategies to varietal resistance level, rainfall zone, growth stage and seasonal conditions... Speaking at the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Grains Research Updates earlier this year, Dr Simpfendorfer said the stripe rust risk was always present and urged growers not to drop the ball on management, particularly around minimum disease standards...
