The project has made excellent progress in identifying key genes linked to oxidative stress that, when mutated, make the model plant Arabidopsis highly susceptible to AG8... The project has also identified other genes whose expression is highly induced following R. solani infection in Arabidopsis and wheat... The exciting results were further supported by large scale analysis of gene expression that revealed the resistance to AG8 was associated with the activity of a number of genes linked to the generation of ROS and similar induction of ROS related genes was seen in wheat after AG8 infection using microarrays...

Research was undertaken within the project and published in scientific journals to contribute to the management of important diseases, such as crown rot (CR) in wheat and spot form of net blotch (SFNB) in barley... The project provided disease screening capability to the National Variety Trials (NVT) and plant breeders to assist with the development of disease resistant cereals and to provide robust disease resistance ratings for industry... In summary the following were produced within the project: 11 scientific publications...

Without appropriate management, diseases can severely impact on the yield and quality of wheat crops in the Wimmera region of Victoria... The Information Note first discusses the integrated management strategies that are required to protect crops from losses due to disease, and then discusses the important diseases of wheat in more detail... For some diseases, a single management strategy is effective, while for others a number of approaches need to be utilised together to ensure effective management...

1. Management of crown rot It is important that reliable estimates of yield losses in barley in Victoria caused by both F. pseudograminearum and Fusarium culmorum are determined... Crown rot research has shown that average annual losses of 4.5% in paddocks with crown rot symptoms can be reduced following adoption of management strategies evaluated within this project... Resistance to bacterial blight In this project, field peas were shown to vary in their response to bacterial blight caused byPss the inheritance of this variation and its nature (i.e. resistance or tolerance to infection) needs to be determined if breeders are to make continuing progress in developing field pea varieties with resistance to this disease...

Valuable Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) research results into pulse diseases are now at the fingertips of the grains industry and research community... Dr Rainbow says diseases remain a significant impediment to the achievement of maximum yield potential of pulses (chickpea, peanut and mungbean) and sunflowers. ".. Dr Rainbow says the research is important as pulses provide an important disease break in cereal and sugarcane farming systems by reducing soilborne disease levels and improving soil health through their impact on nitrogen levels...
