Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The material is now at the F6 stage with selected lines showing promising levels of resistance in both field and seedling screens (up to 86% reduction in disease severity compared to EGA Bellaroi )... Significant field resistance to CR has been successfully transferred into durum wheats from hexaploid sources (up to 86% reduction in CR severity compared to EGA Bellaroi )... The project has also developed some lines which appear to have promising levels of resistance to FHB. Once backcrossed and incorporated into commercial varieties post-project this material should prove valuable in an integrated management system to control both CR and FHB...

The GRDC has backed WA's Murdoch University-based Australian Centre for Necrotrophic Fungal Pathogens (ACNFP) to combat this family of diseases and things are starting to hot up... When we have identified the genes active in promoting S.nodorum pathogenicity, we will compare them with other fungi which have also been sequenced, including disease and non-disease causing varieties," Professor Oliver says. ".. GRDC Research Code: UMU 88, program 3 < Keep browsing 0 Responses to Genes hold the key to controlling diseases..

A timely refresher in cereal fungicide management is now available for northern region graingrowers heading into the danger period for costly diseases such as stripe rust... The new GRDC fact sheet, Cereal fungicides - Northern Region outlines how and why growers should assess disease risk and carefully consider control options... Good management practices such as controlling the green bridge for cereal rusts, attention to potential risk of stubble-borne leaf disease when deciding on crop rotations, and choosing the most resistant variety for the conditions will reduce the reliance on fungicides and disease pressure overall," Dr Young said. "..

Photo: A fragile global resource: Ross Johns (right) visits the Vavilov Research Institute"s original oat collection... At the Vavilov itself, the buildings that house the collection are old and in disrepair - you would think there had been no paint manufactured in Russia for about 50 years... The institute"s seed collections were largely built by Nikolai Vavilov, a Russian biologist, botanist and geneticist, who scoured five continents in the 1920s and 1930s for wild and cultivated corn, potato tubers, grains, beans, fodder, fruits and vegetable seeds...

Economic: In the project, a number of lines were assessed or selected with higher grain and hay yields than present varieties in areas of 330 to 500 mm/yr of rainfall... Lamb feeding experiments using Morava and Rasina (< 0.65% toxin in grain), showed extremely good growth... Project results showed 54 kg, 98 kg and 145 kg/ha were fixed after vetch for grain, hay and green manure, respectively...
