A method was developed to use DNA assays to measure Fusarium pseudograminearum and F. culmorum levels in stubble to complement our existing ability to process soil samples... To speed development of crown rot management strategies, 4114 soil and stubble samples were processed for crown rot projects in South Australia (SA), Victoria (Vic), New South Wales (NSW) and Queensland (QLD)... The DNA technology used also forms the basis of PreDicta B, which grain producers can use to assess soil-borne disease risks in paddocks before sowing their crops...

The University of Sydney manages several collaborative programs with India funded through the Generation Challenge Program (GCP) and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR)... The programs develop germplasm with stress and disease resistance specifically for India by crossing Australian and local germplasm with subsequent selection for key traits using a combination of molecular markers and phenotypic screening... The materials, derived using a combination of double haploids and traditional selection, have been developed at the Plant Breeding Institute and the seed sent to India for evaluation...

The model is limited in its application for sprays applied with ground rigs in Australia because it does not include newer nozzle types or drift reduction technologies... Vertical flux measured at a distance of 2m downwind of the sprayed area shows greater than 90% reduction when the shield was used... The present report describes a project which was conducted to offer options for the use of coarser sprays as part of an interim ground drift model...
