During the first field trip (August 2), Prof Tuberosa visited three different experimental sites near Adelaide where a number of new experimental materials were being evaluated alongside already released varieties... During the second field trip (August 22), he visited three different farms where durum is grown and an experimental site where new materials were being evaluated for their agronomic performance... As a member of the steering and program committee of InterDrought-III (October 10-14, 2009, Shanghai, China,) and in view of the strong interest in drought-related research at ACPFG, the inclusion of Prof Mark Tester in the scientific committee of InterDrought-III has been suggested...

A disease control model for crown rot in Victoria and South Australia (SA) which provides crop management recommendations to reduce the build-up of Fusarium inoculum and avoid sowing into high disease risk situations... Crown rot is highly spatially variable, so intensive and extensive sampling programs were undertaken to assess the the reliability of results produced using current sampling protocols... Intensive stubble and soil sampling was used to assess the scale of spatial variability of crown rot and whether taking soil cores in a row crop was causing "spikes" in results...

Durum wheat growers urged to stay ahead of crown rot risk.. Growers of durum wheat are being encouraged to test their paddocks for the soil-borne disease crown rot before embarking on this year's sowing programs... The potential yield loss due to crown rot is much greater in durum than bread wheats, so paddocks reported with a medium or high risk are switched to bread wheat, as part of their risk management strategy...

Crown rot caused by Fusarium pseudograminearum affects all cereals, but durum crops are particularly susceptible... Closed canopy break crops and fallow are most effective at reducing crown rot... Expertise and results from DAS00032 are being used to assist in developing a pilot spreadsheet...

Summary of results Through the preliminary stages of this project, we carried out a number of important experiments to characterise TaASY1 and its protein product in the model cultivar of bread wheat, Chinese spring... The results represent the first published work of a gene from bread wheat that is involved in chromosome pairing and synapsis of homologous chromosomes... The results obtained in this GRDC funded project represent the first example of a meiosis gene being characterised in bread wheat following its investigation in Arabidopsis...

We conducted 56 replicated plot experiments on a range of integrated disease management (IDM) strategies under this project aimed at reducing losses and refining management of these diseases... Three replicated trials were conducted in 2007 with 24 different treatments evaluated for the control of CR in both a bread wheat and durum variety... In collaboration with CAS, we tested stubble samples from 312 paddocks in northern NSW for levels of CR and CRR during this project...

What began as a quick internet search to learn more about the possible causes behind the leaf spotting that was affecting wheat in north-west NSW has led to a new discovery for Australia - that a lack of the nutrient chloride may not only cause spotting, but may also lead to delayed flowering and increased lodging... Chloride deficiency in bread wheat can affect yields without producing any leaf spots.].. A lack of chloride can also affect moisture regulation in the plant because chloride helps open and shut the stomata (the plant's valves) keeping moisture in," he says...

YELLOW LEAF SPOT RESOURCE: Southern region grain growers are being provided with a useful resource as they endeavour to reduce the incidence of yellow leaf spot... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has developed a new fact sheet, Management to reduce the risk of yellow leaf spot, to support growers in their efforts to combat the disease... Yellow leaf spot does not affect oats or green barley plants, although barley stubbles can host the pathogen and generate inoculum for the following season...
