Nematode-starving linseed ticks all the boxes.. The Jacksons started growing linseed three years ago after attending a GRDC Research Update at Goondiwindi, Queensland, where they learned the crop was resistant to Pratylenchus thornei and P. neglectus , which damage other plants' roots and reduce yield... Before growing linseed, the Jacksons ran a wheat/barley/canola rotation, but PreDicta B tests confirmed there were 17,000 P. thornei per kilogram in their black self-mulching clay soils after the cereal phase...

DAFWA researcher Sarah Collins is working to characterise differences between crop varieties in terms of their resistance and tolerance to root lesion nematode species in Western Australian conditions... Growers and agronomists are being urged to watch for symptoms of root lesion nematodes (RLN) this winter and spring and use in-season testing services if their presence is suspected... Diagnosis will also help the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) characterise nematode distribution and gather resistance information for crops and varieties grown in WA...

" Rotations to reduce impact of nematodes in Western cereal cropping systems DAW00124 Start Date: 01/07/2005.. Results for Pratylenchus penetrans indicate that RLN could possibly adapt to different hosts, depending on cropping history... To optimise the management of RLN with the use of rotations, these weeds should be controlled in cropping paddocks...

Know your nematodes and set up a crop defence system in 2014.. WA growers are encouraged to find out what species and levels of root lesion nematodes (RLN) are present in their soils during the growing season... DAFWA research has indicated crops that are resistant to P. penetrans are often highly susceptible to P. neglectus or P. teres, highlighting the importance of knowing which species of RLN is present - as management of one RLN species may be causing an increase in another...

Rotation combats costly nematode issue.. The move to a cane/peanut crop rotation has dramatically changed the nature of farming for Bundaberg district growers Neville and Jason Loeskow over the past 20 years... "Survey work undertaken by Dr Graham Stirling from Biological Crop Protection found that plant parasitic nematodes were a much larger issue in cane growing regions than previously thought with Pratylenchus zeae found in every paddock sampled in the central coastal region of Queensland," Mr Halpin said...

Rotation cuts the high cost of nematodes.. Neil Halpin, Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) senior agronomist and project leader of the GRDC-funded Coastal Growers Solutions project, says nematode surveys have highlighted the severity and extent of the issue in the Bundaberg cropping region and the need for growers to consider a long-term rotational farming system...
