Until such varieties are released, northern growers and advisers need to select varieties firstly on the basis of crown rot risk and then manage for stripe rust ... There is a risk of WSMV being spread through infected seed into new areas... We have not been able to determine an economic threshold for RGB in sorghum from these trials...

High Plains Virus is expected to be more widespread than the isolated case confirmed so far in Queensland - but experts and growers see little cause for alarm... The same new testing methods that confirmed High Plains Virus on a wheat plant at the Leslie Research Centre in Toowoomba, are expected to uncover the virus in other wheat growing areas of Australia, according to Dr Graeme Hamilton, Chief Plant Protection Officer with the Australian Government Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry... "It is likely that High Plains Virus (HPV) has been around in Australia for some time in association with Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus (WSMV) but until now we haven"t had a reliable test to confirm that," Dr Hamilton says...

Wheat curl mite (WCM) is a vector of wheat streak mosaic virus and a new website has been established to help growers better understand this pest Growers in areas prone to wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV) are being encouraged to use the website www.wheatcurlmite.org as a one-stop-shop for information on the pest and to help researchers with tracking outbreaks... Launched earlier this year and funded by the GRDC, the website was created by the Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaption Research (CESAR) as an online repository for facts and management guidelines concerning WSMV and its vector, the wheat curl mite... Wheat curl mites colonise the youngest tissue of a wheat plant and acquire WSMV when feeding on infected plants, and then carry it to other plants...

The increasing prevalence and spread of wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV) in Australia has highlighted the necessity to fully understand the biology, ecology and genetics of its primary vector, the wheat curl mite (WCM)... The results generated provide a valuable framework for prioritising future research and devising control strategies for WCM and the associated spread of WSMV in Australia... The results have implications for management and provide a foundation for understanding the colonisation ability of the species, the risk of WSMV spread during growing seasons, and the evolution and spread of insecticide resistance in WCM populations...
