Barley yellow dwarf virus can be a threat in all environments, and it is recommended that seed be treated with imidicloprid, or crops closely monitored for aphid infestation and sprayed ... Pea growers have generally been advised to sow pea crops 2-3 weeks after opening rains so newly emerging crops can avoid these spores...

Frost remains hot research priority for grains industry.. Significant yield losses caused by frost in Western Australia last year have underlined the importance of the grains industry's continued investment in research, development and extension (RD&E) to address the issue... "It is important that the GRDC also encourages and funds significant scientific effort in the area of genetics-based research, because that is where the most gains in combating frost are likely to be made," he said...

Develop approaches to reliably screen for frost tolerance... Identify and select frost tolerant barley and wheat germplasm for use in breeding programs to reduce frost sensitivity of future commercial varieties... Future work will continue refining screening methods, searching for sources of tolerance, working towards developing frost sensitivity ratings of new varieties and validating the impact of frost induced sterility from mild frosts on yield in wheat and barley...

Breeding new cereal varieties with improved frost tolerance is the ultimate solution to minimising the economic losses resulting from frost... Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) frost researcher Ben Biddulph is leading the WA node of the ANFP and frost susceptibility ratings for wheat and barley in WA and will discuss how the ratings should be used at the 2015 Agribusiness Crop Updates... Dr Biddulph said across three years of the WA trials, it was found that wheat and barley varieties did differ in susceptibility to reproductive frost damage during booting and flowering and no varieties were frost tolerant...

A new mechanism to measure a cereal cultivars frost susceptibility has been developed by the Australian National Frost Program... 108.63: Ben Biddulph: And we actually go through every plot that 112.38: is flowering that day and we go through and tag between 30 and 60 heads in that particular 118: plot and we monitor those for the next 6 weeks, collect those heads and then take them back 122.64: to the laboratory and look at grain set and from that we can look at the reduction in 126.75: grain number and look at how the variety compares to other varieties at the same stage of development... 287.419: Ben Biddulph: But yeah it will be a while away I mean at 290.75: the moment growers can look forward to knowing the susceptibility of their varieties within 296.86: 2 to 3 years for wheat and barley but it is going to be a lot longer process for actually 301.669: developing frost tolerant per say and also trying to unravel those management impacts...

Monitoring needs to occur up to two weeks after the event to detect all the damage... The 18 th of October was the morning that caused people the most grief, but in parts of NE Victoria and Southern NSW up to three significant frosts were experienced in October... Extra soil moisture or lower soil temperatures as a result of stubble cover can delay flowering potentially changing the frost risk in or out of the danger zone...
