The project will undertake an ambitious field program across South Australia and Victoria to evaluate the different resistance genes available to wheat breeding programs to determine the level of resistance required to manage CCN, Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei populations in current farming systems, and develop recommendations to breeding companies on the need for resistant and tolerant varieties across the southern region... To improve recommendation to growers, the project will also assess tolerance of current wheat and barley varieties to CCN, P. neglectus and P. thornei and update guidelines on use of nematode resistant and tolerant varieties to minimise yield losses, including revising the risk categories based on initial nematode levels... A new research officer Sjaan Davey, has been appointed to this project and in collaboration with Dr Grant Hollaway,DPI Vic (via GRDC project DAV00104), and Bev Gogel and Prof Brian Cullis (GRDC project, Statistics for the Australian Grains Industry), is co-ordinating field trials in SA and Victoria to check the calibration of the pot experiments used to classify the resistance levels to CCN, Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei in new varieties, and is developing a field program to assess how well new varieties tolerate the nematodes in the current farming systems...

" GCTV Extension Files: Wheat Varieties 2014 - NSW 02 April 2014 New South Wales cereal specialist Peter Matthews comments on wheat varieties being sown this season in the east... Last year crown rot 29.199: was a big issue so growers need to look at their wheat varieties look at their farming 33.53: systems and their paddocks and decide is it going to be important and look to chose a 37.499: variety that will be able to tolerate crown rot, will give them the highest yield possible 42.309: in the presence of crown rot... Now one variety, Sunguard it has been around for a number 46.359: of years has one of the highest ratings in terms of crown rot tolerance so it is an option 51.249: for growers to grow a specific variety or chose a variety that has some tolerance to 55.499: something like crown rot...

Northern region growers are increasingly questioning the traditional model of wheat as a backbone to their enterprises and instead relying more on summer grains as core crops in their farming systems... James Clark, GRDC Northern Panel chair, says: "Rotations involving summer grains have become vital to the future of farming in the northern region.".. Rotations and careful crop sequencing are at the heart of managing major issues including crown rot, herbicide resistance and soil fertility decline in both summer and winter crops, according to Mr Clark, who was speaking at the 2013 Australian Summer Grains Conference held on the Gold Coast in June...
