Cereal rust diseases cause significant losses in Australia... Efforts to develop high yielding cereal cultivars with resistance to rust diseases have often been thwarted by the ability of rust pathogens to overcome these genes... The detection of 10 new pathotypes of cereal rust pathogens, resulting in the loss of 5 resistance genes from 2007-2011 highlight the need for ongoing R&D to underpin resistance breeding efforts and ensure industry-wide rust protection...
