Net blotch is expected to be at damaging levels in Western Australian barley crops this year, particularly in high rainfall areas, but growers can reduce the risks by adopting an integrated disease management approach... "There is a high risk of damage to 2014 barley crops due to carry-over of the disease from last year, heavy stubble loads and warm conditions forecast for coming months," he said... "Both forms of net blotch have become more prevalent in WA in recent years and were damaging last season, particularly in south coastal regions."..

Dormancy and water sensitivity are undesirable post-harvest because barley varieties with these two traits generally need months of storage for the seed to be suitable for malting... Dr Reuss and his team investigated three main options: using agricultural chemicals to break dormancy before or after storage.. After testing a total of 20 agricultural chemicals, the team found that several were so toxic that they could not be used (they killed the barley seed), and many did not effectively break dormancy...

Launched in late 2014, the SmarterSeeds program allows growers in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria to exchange harvested grain retained on-farm for sowing, which might have deteriorated or been contaminated with other varieties... Mr Jorgensen says that apart from exposing growers to high pressure from crop diseases, such as stripe rust, sowing grain that contains a cocktail of different varieties is likely to result in uneven crop maturation and increased risk of frost damage. ".. If the means only a small percentage of the crop is sown within the optimum sowing window," Mr Jorgensen says...

In 2011 the disease was distributed much further with severe infection observed in crops, principally Wyalkatchem, across much of the rest of the Eyre Peninsula and also in many crops on the Yorke Peninsula and in the Mid North... When the effect of seed treatments wore off there was too little inoculum in crops for the epidemic to develop and cause significant damage... Should growers decide to apply early protection for stripe rust they can choose cheaper seed treatments containing flutriafol or triadimenol or longer acting treatments based on fluquinconazole or fertiliser- applied fungicides...

White grain At harvest in 2010 a number of growers in the north eastern Eyre Peninsula and Far North regions had deliveries of wheat rejected due to white grain... The fungus is likely to remain a concern for the future although severe problems are only likely to occur where wet springs promote infection late in the season... Growers are encouraged to maintain this level of resistance and avoid adopting varieties more susceptible than GladiusA and YitpiA. Yellow leaf spot The wet spring of 2010 will have increased the levels of the yellow leaf spot fungus (Pyrenophora tritici-repentis) in cereal stubbles...
