Although ascochyta blight has been present in Central Queensland for the past six years, Mr Cumming said the incidence and severity had remained low due to dry winters and the concerted management efforts by growers and advisors... "The most significant risk to the introduction and spread of ascochyta blight to a farm is through the introduction of infect chickpea crop residues and maintaining strict farm hygiene remains the primary line of defence," Mr Cumming said... The revised management strategy has been developed by Pulse Australia in conjunction with key industry stake holders, including the USQ/Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) pulse pathology team...

Leader of the Southern Pulse Agronomy project Dr Jason Brand says growers need to get the fundamentals for their faba beans right up front, such as row spacing, plant density and pest and disease management, to avoid any issues in the canopy later in the season... Growers wanting to avoid issues with canopy management in faba bean crops later this season should first get fundamental measures such as row spacing, plant density, inoculation and pest and disease management right earlier in the season... Dr Brand has been looking at novel ways of reducing the problem in the HRZ, including chemical and mechanical treatments, but says the key message for growers was still to focus on getting the important things right early in the growing season...

South Australian pulse growers are being advised to closely monitor crops due to the high risk of diseases... South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) senior pulse pathologist, Dr Jenny Davidson, says prolific crop canopy development has occurred in a number of pulse crops across SA due to high rainfall and warmer than average May and June temperatures... Botrytis grey mould does not normally occur in chickpeas in SA, but if chickpea crops develop heavy canopies and conditions are suitable for Botrytis grey mould (over 18C with high humidity), then these crops will also need to be sprayed with a fungicide, according to Dr Davidson...

South Australian field pea growers can now access information online to assist in reducing the risk of blackspot infection in this year's crops... SARDI senior pulse pathologist, Jenny Davidson, says the model indicates that blackspot will remain a risk for field peas until May 25 in many areas of SA... "The SMS service gives growers direct information about sowing dates that offer the best potential for reducing blackspot in field pea crops," said Ms Davidson...

Valuable Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) research results into pulse diseases are now at the fingertips of the grains industry and research community... Dr Rainbow says diseases remain a significant impediment to the achievement of maximum yield potential of pulses (chickpea, peanut and mungbean) and sunflowers. ".. Dr Rainbow says the research is important as pulses provide an important disease break in cereal and sugarcane farming systems by reducing soilborne disease levels and improving soil health through their impact on nitrogen levels...
