The Crop Disease Podcast Presenter: Megan Jones Aug 24, 2022 Listen Time: 21 minutes

We’re now getting towards the end of the 2022 season, and there’s been quite a bit of rain around the country. But with rain comes crop disease, and we’re seeing a number of disease management issues popping up everywhere.

Along with CCDM’s Mark Gibberd, join Megan Jones as she speaks to three agronomists and a pathologist, to find out the current issues of the season and the next management strategy to think about. We'll hear from:

  • Steven Simpfendorfer, Tamworth Agricultural Institute, NSW about stripe rust and trusting in adult plant resistance in varieties, and the risk of a leaf rust epidemic.
  • Greg Toomey, Nutrien Elmore, VIC, about the diseases growers are dealing with and the next steps in nitrogen management for the season to continue on its trajectory.
  • Sam Holmes, Central Ag Solutions, Yorke Peninsula, SA, about a mixture of diseases, with cereal disease powdery mildew, septoria tritici blotch and net blotches causing some concern.
  • Dan Talyor, DKT Rural Agencies, Central Wheatbelt, about how the wheat powdery mildew he mentioned in the first update has progressed to concerning levels.
