Dr Colin Wellings, University of Sydney, Plant Breeding Institute (PBI) on secondment from NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) says a growing body of data is shedding new light on rust management for growers... The report is available from www.nvtonline.com.au/reports and Dr Wellings urges growers to take advantage of the large amount of information now contained on the site... "While the data for stripe rust have been the subject of focused attention by pathologists and breeders across the majority of the Australian wheat growing regions for many years, leaf rust and stem rust have been more sporadic," he said...

" New strategies for disease resistance to wheat stripe rust: Providing novel resistance to wheat rust disease via RNAi interference.. New strategies to control the disease are necessary because sources of genetic resistance are limiting and easily overcome... This will give insight to the mechanisms giving rise to virulence changes in the stripe rust population in Australia, allow us to identify key virulence proteins called "effectors", and to use these effectors to identify new sources of disease resistance as they can be recognised by the host immune system...

Bust the rust in wheat this season.. While stem rust has the potential to inflict large-scale crop losses in the northern region if conditions are favourable, epidemics have largely been kept in check through the selection of varieties with adequate rust resistance... Headed up by Professor Robert Park, the ACRCP program has provided the industry with vision and leadership when it comes to assisting Australian cereal breeders incorporate genetic resistance to rust diseases into varieties to achieve effective long-term disease management...
