In the central to west Midlands region where I work as an agricultural consultant, I didn't see much evidence of disease until about mid-June... But as temperatures have dropped, crops have slowed in growth and many have turned a bit yellow... Growers are encouraged to take part in the campaign and submit samples so researchers can recover current strains of the fungus, monitor the pathogen and stay on top of any changes, so they are best placed to combat it...

The overall objective of this research program is to develop and deliver strategies for management of plant diseases of importance to SA grains industries... The increased frequency of cereals and greater adoption of susceptible cultivars is creating an opportunity for cereal cyst nematode (CCN) to re-emerge as a significant problem in the southern region... Subproject 3 continues existing monitoring and surveillance of new races and pathogen threats; this subproject will link with newly appointed grains biosecurity officer in SA. Subproject 4 focusses on rebuilding a joint capability in the southern region to address key issues in cereal nematology, most critically preventing CCN re-emerging as a significant problem...

Pulse and oilseed diseases which cost growers in the southern cropping region tens of millions of dollars every year are being tackled head-on through a suite of research programs being funded by the Grain Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... The GRDC is taking a three-pronged approach to disease prevention and management by: developing oilseed and pulse varieties with greater resistance to foliar fungal diseases; keeping abreast of fungal disease dynamics; and developing and extending management packages to control foliar fungal diseases on-farm and prolong the useful life of Australia's fungicide options... Variety resistance is the most sustainable way to manage fungal diseases - a principle that guides the GRDC's ongoing and substantial commitment to finding new genes that confer disease resistance to Australian crop varieties...
