Aphids reduce yields by direct feeding damage which causes flower and pod abortion and occasionally plant death in lupins.
Barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) and cereal yellow dwarf virus (CYDV) are found damaging cereal crops worldwide. They infect wheat, barley, oats and grasses and are transmitted by aphids.
The extent of damage varies between seasons, but losses can be severe in years that favour aphid population development.
Barley leaf disease management options supported by the latest research findings are shown here.
Cereal smut and bunt diseases are caused by fungi which parasitise the host plant and produce masses of soot-like spores in the leaves, grains or ears.
Stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici) and leaf rust (Puccinia triticina) can be a significant threat to wheat crops in Western Australia in some seasons.
Summarises the symptoms, disease risk, infection cycle and control measures for ascochyta blight (Ascochyta fabae) in faba bean compared to other diseases Alternaria and Cerco
Bean yellow mosaic virus (BYMV) causes a serious disease in narrow-leafed lupins. BYMV is found predominantly in high rainfall wheatbelt zones but occurs less often in medium rainfall zones.
Andromeda is a variety of albus lupin with considerably better tolerance to the disease anthracnose (Colletotrichum lupini) than Kiev Mutant.
Root and hypocotyl diseases can be significant problems in lupin crops, reducing stand density, plant vigour and yield.
