"In developing a rust-management plan, growers should also revisit the susceptibility of the varieties they have selected to grow and tailor their action plan to the level of resistance present.".. "There is plenty of help available if growers are not sure how susceptible their varieties are or which is the best approach to take - check with your local agronomist, plant pathologist, your regional variety guide or visit the Rust Bust website ( www.rustbust.com.au ) or the National Variety Trials website ( www.nvtonline.com.au )...
