Horsham workshop to get to the root of cereal diseases.. Identification of cereal root diseases will be the focus of a Grains Research and Development Corporation-funded workshop in Horsham next month... Designed for agronomists, advisers, consultants and growers, the workshop on February 29 will provide information and technical advice for managing and identifying cereal root diseases in the low and medium rainfall zones...

Crop disease management in water limited environments A feature of cropping enterprises in the water limited environments of the northern and central agricultural regions of WA is the intensive cereal rotations used to maintain profitability and manage weeds... The project will develop disease management recommendations for intensive cereal rotations to enable growers to minimise the impact of foliar and root diseases on cereal yields... Maintaining market access Changes to the World Trade Organisation legislation now require that countries participating in international trade, such as Australia, must prove that specific grain pests and diseases exotic to importing countries are known not to occur in the exporting country...

There has been a considerable increase in the incidence of crops affected by root lesion nematode (RLN) throughout the Western Australian (WA) cropping region... The recent root disease survey showed that the highest levels of all root diseases in WA are in the southern high rainfall zone... The objectives of the project are to:1) Identify sites in WA that are suppressive to one or more root diseases of wheat including take-all, rhizoctonia root rot, crown rot and RLN. Sites will be selected from three past and current projects including the DAFWA "Profitable crop sequencing in WA" [P. WHITE, M. HARRIES] project (which will establish 150 focus sites at which inoculum level and disease incidence will be measured), the "Soil Quality" [D. MURPHY] project (which has previously established a large number of geo-referenced monitoring sites around the WA agricultural region and the inoculum level was measured), and the DAFWA 2006-2008 cereal root disease survey sites [DAW00159]...

Western Australian researchers are a step closer to answering this question, having identified several paddocks which potentially suppress diseases including take-all, crown rot and rhizoctonia barepatch, and pests like root lesion nematode (RLN)... Daniel Huberli "Paddocks which had a high to moderate level of DNA for a disease pathogen, but a low expression of the disease, were deemed potentially disease suppressive," Dr H berli said... Dr H berli said the next step of the research aimed to identify the beneficial micro-organisms present in disease suppressive paddocks...

Little could the couple have realised that it would be 30 years before the trial program would finally wind up, and by then be cemented into history as one of the most remarkable sources of knowledge on Australian dryland cropping... The new concept of direct-drilling crops using a non-residual herbicide (Sprayseed ) instead of ploughing was measured against conventional cultivation... "And if we take outcomes from the Mallee Sustainable Farming project alone, we estimate that the benefits of modifying and adopting the research findings from the Avon site amount to about $500 million each year in increased grain production and reduced wind erosion," Dr Rovira said...
