The National Mungbean Improvement Program (NMIP) has developed the next generation varieties and germplasm that will surpass Crystal and deliver further productivity and reliability gains to the northern region growers and the Australian mungbean industry... Stage 1 trials (first year replicated testing in 2010-11) - 16 lines 10 to 23 per cent higher yielding than Crystal... Seventy three lines in Stage 1 MET have an AusTRC321818 pedigree and ten of these had higher yields than Crystal in 2010-11...

Genome sequencing of the pathogen that causes the wheat disease tan or yellow spot is expected to accelerate the release of more resistant varieties and improve resistance ratings for existing cultivars... The director of the Perth-based Australian Centre for Necrotrophic Fungal Pathogens (ACNFP), Professor Richard Oliver, says estimates that the disease causes annual losses of more than $200 million in Australian cropping might be conservative... Leader of tan spot research at ACNFP Dr Caroline Moffat says the new genome sequence means her team can focus on finding sequences for Australian isolates of the disease and genetic analysis of Australian wheat varieties...

Genome sequencing of the wheat disease tan (yellow) spot pathogen is expected to help researchers boost the productivity of the Australian wheat industry by tens of millions of dollars in coming years... Professor Oliver said the sequencing of the tan spot genome also followed the 2010 cloning and sequencing of the gene for tan spot necrosis 1 (Tsn1) - the protein produced by susceptible wheat cultivars, which helped tan spot and septoria (Stagonospora nodorum) infect the leaves... "Based on data in the 2009 GRDC report T he current and potential costs of diseases of wheat in Australia , I estimate that the sequencing of ToxA and Tsn1 will ultimately cut Australian crop losses caused by tan spot by about $100 million, while the PTR genome sequence should at least halve losses again," he said...

"Research carried out by Kalyx and the ACNFP in 2009 and 2010 suggested that wherever the disease is present, it causes yield losses of 0.3 to 0.6 tonnes per hectare, so $200 million may well be an underestimate," Professor Oliver said...

Stop the Spot unlocks clues for tackling crop disease.. Yellow spot, known overseas as tan spot, causes national wheat crop losses of $212 million, plus control costs of $463 million per annum... To assist the campaign, growers are urged to send in leaf samples of yellow spot, which will enable researchers at the Centre for Crop and Disease Management (CCDM) to develop genetic tools for breeders, monitor biosecurity risks and have an understanding of how the pathogen may be changing in the paddock...
