The aim of the project was to define the plant pathogen incursion risk posed by travellers returning from overseas and interstate... An additional aim of the project was to increase awareness and education of international and domestic travellers who have been working in field crops, or visiting farms, about the risks of spreading plant pathogens on hair, clothing and footwear if these are not cleaned appropriately... Published PCR methods were evaluated for use in identification of the fungal spores...

Collection sites were checked for geographic accuracy, growing season climate characterised individually and genetic diversity measured using Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) markers... The project provided important insight into lupin adaptation, identified promising germplasm which has entered the breeding program and is currently being used to select germplasm for research at CSIRO, the University of Western Australia (UWA) and the Department of Agriculture and Food Western Australia (DAFWA)... Phenology is unstable, often very delayed - particularly in the warmer environments where drought escape is essential - and these varieties are poorly adapted to Australian conditions...

The problem is even bigger at the global scale, with total cost of salinity estimated over $11 billion per year... Salinity issue will remain one of the key threats to the global food production in the 21st century... The project will contribute to this goal by providing physiological evaluation and mapping appropriate genes conferring two of such traits, namely transpirational control and oxidative stress tolerance, in cereals...

The project will generate tools that allow the delivery of durable resistance to rust diseases in the Australian wheat crop through: 1... In the shorter term accurate DNA markers referred to as 'Breeders' Markers' and newly characterised resistance genes will be made available for immediate use by Australian wheat breeders as soon as they are verified and then internationally via peer reviewed publication in scientific journals... The expected outputs of this project are a set of accurate DNA makers for known and new rust resistance genes of high relevance to controlling the three wheat rust species (stem rust, stripe rust and leaf rust) in Australia and overseas...
