DAQ00096 - Emerging Foliar Wheat Disease Issues in the Northern Region

Wilkinson, Peter. DAQ00096 - Emerging Foliar Wheat Disease Issues in the Northern Region. Lead Agency: Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI).

Project Start: 1 July 2005

Project End:30 June 2009


The emerging disease program seeks to gain information on the distribution of cereal pathogens\pathotypes and potential for outbreaks across the norther region and options for their control. It is looking for an improved understanding of varietal (APR) reaction to stripe rust (YR) in prevailing weather conditions and in the face of climate change.

Replicated field trials are used in the evaluation of varietal, cultural and chemical management of YR.

Best management practice packages are disseminated to stake holders, including a YR predictive tool.
