wheat powdery mildew

Wheat yields improved by timely powdery mildew control.. "In cases where the onset of the disease occurred later in the season, the best timing was once all leaves had emerged, which provided maximum protection for the plant canopy... "Early sown, susceptible varieties should be monitored closely this season to avoid significant damage occurring before management is instigated," Ms Beard said...

Fran Lopez-Ruiz, Fungicide Resistance Group leader of the co-funded Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and Curtin University centre, also said the difficulties experienced by growers in controlling the disease were unlikely to be the result of fungicide resistance at this time... "The methodologies developed by our research group allow us to stay on top of any fungicide resistant disease populations and help growers act quickly before a disease can get out of hand," Dr Lopez-Ruiz said... "Growers need to be mindful of how they use fungicides, and stick to integrated disease management strategies that do not depend solely on fungicides...

Western Australian growers are encouraged to carefully check wheat crops for signs of powdery mildew following initial reports of the disease this season... Until 2015, wheat powdery mildew had not caused significant widespread damage to the State's wheat crops since the late 1990s and early 2000s... GRDC-supported trials led by DAFWA in 2015 - combined with outcomes from research funded and conducted by Landmark, Imtrade, Liebe Group and Northampton Agri Services - found that timely application of foliar fungicide, as soon as possible after the disease was seen moving up the crop canopy, was more important than product choice...

Western Australian grain grower Alex Pearse is among a groundswell of growers now battling wheat powdery mildew - a disease which has become widespread, requires monitoring and attention to detail and, in many cases, has significantly ramped up input costs... "Pathogens are always evolving and presenting new challenges, and any change in the pathogenicity of powdery mildew of wheat is no different - that's just the way nature works," he said, "The only way we, as an industry, can take action against fungicide resistance is by slowing down the selection of mutations in the population... To slow down resistance mutations arising in wheat powdery mildew, growers are advised to be mindful of how they use fungicides, and stick to IDM strategies that do not depend solely on fungicides - such as using resistant crop varieties, crop rotations, stubble management and green bridge control...
