Isolate Resources of Cereal Pathogens

At CCDM we’ve been monitoring pathogen populations for some time and, as part of our cereal diseases work, we’ve collected a library of fungal isolates from the major grain growing regions of Australia. These fungal isolates cause yellow spot and septoria nodorum blotch in wheat, and spot from net blotch and net form net blotch in barley.  Feb 09, 2023 Read Time: 0 minutes
