The best means for controlling powdery mildew is by avoiding more susceptible wheat and barley varieties... if powdery mildew is allowed to develop in crops, there is a serious risk of fungicide resistance developing as well as loss of resistance in current and future varieties... Spraying needs to be done early with full rates of fungicide...

A local trial in 2009 has also shown that nodulation may be reduced where inoculants are applied as a slurry on to fungicide treated seed... In the past, inoculation has usually been done by applying root nodule bacteria in peat slurry to the seed and sowing on the same day... The peat granules had a significant increase in nodulation when seed was treated with fungicide...

GRDC plant health technologies program manager Dr Ken Young says the CCDM's program of research has already increased the industry's understanding of pathogen epidemiology and the cause, spread and behaviour of some of the country's most damaging crop diseases... "The focus of the centre starts with the science breakthroughs we need to achieve further improvements, which will flow through to farming practices and productivity gains on-farm," he says... "By providing a level of funding certainty - in areas where we know long-term research is essential to industry viability - we give our research organisations the backing they need to make important expansion decisions and build and maintain resources," Mr Harvey says...

Pythium root rot is often misdiagnosed, but new research is increasing our knowledge of damage caused by the disease and offering new control options.. Now research is showing that Pythium can have a big effect on crop growth through the season, resulting in substantial reductions in productivity, even in the absence of 'damping-off'... Results from three years of field trials with wheat demonstrated that an in-furrow application of the Trichoderma inoculant at seeding resulted in: improved crop emergence; reduced levels of Pythium inoculum and root infection; and increases in yield...

Adult plant resistance (APR) to cereal fungal diseases is an important trait for grain growers to consider when choosing varieties to sow... APR can complement a fungicide strategy by protecting, from diseases such as rust, those parts of the plant most responsible for yield... Adult plant resistance is a useful trait to consider in variety selection, and understanding how it works can make fungicide application decisions easier...

Hot dry conditions exacerbate crown rot threat.. "This year many crops have simply run short of stored moisture and plants have had to expend additional energy to uptake limited moisture for grain fill from a greater depth in the soil... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) advises growers to assess crown rot risk by checking for browning of the stem base or by taking soil and stubble samples for analysis...
