No treatment in this trial effectively repelled small conical snails.
No treatment caused significant mortality of conical snails over 21 days when compared to the nil treatment.
In 2021 the Department is conducting over 300 research trials across the state from Kununurra in the north to Esperance in the south.
When selecting a wheat variety to implement in a farming system, it is important to be aware of the variety's disease package to plan management options. The disease resistance ratings for wheat va
Powdery mildew has become more prevalent in WA wheat crops over the past few years, particularly late in seasons.
The approach of summer has prompted a reminder to landholders across the grainbelt to check their properties for skeleton weed.

Rhizoctonia patches can be easily identified by both normal and NDVI images captured by UAV.
This paper reports on a three year series (2014-2016) of trials to provide WA grain growers experimental field evidence of the effect of crown rot on barley and wheat variety yields.
Research to quantify yield losses from a range of cereal diseases is underway, which will assist growers to select the best varieties and disease management strategies suited to their cropping prog
