Septoria nodorum blotch (SNB) is a significant fungal disease of wheat. Resistant varieties would complement on-farm disease management practices to maintain grain yields under disease epidemics.
Powdery mildew has become more prevalent in WA wheat crops over the past few years, particularly late in seasons.
Western Australia has seen major changes to the agronomic system, including a drying climate, more intensive cropping rotations and the widespread adoption of no-till.
Yellow dwarf viruses (YDV) are the most damaging viruses of cereals.
The disease ratings for wheat varieties for leaf rust help decide what variety is best suited.
The disease ratings for wheat varieties help decide what variety is best suited. Just as paddocks have differing disease and management histories, varieties have differing resistance levels.
Yellow leaf spot can have a significant impact on wheat yields.
In 2015 powdery mildew reached damaging levels in several regions. With the green bridge leading into the 2016 season, the disease could have significant impacts.
The effect of mechanical incorporation of different lime rates on crop yield and subsurface pH was observed four seasons after application.
Mechanical incorporation of different lime rates using offset disc, Grizzly Tiny offsets® and deep ripping treatments were tested.
