What We Do

We’re identifying new cases of fungicide resistance We’ve discovered most cases of fungicide resistance in a number of crop diseases across Australia, including the first worldwide discovery of a new dual form of resistance in barley net form net blotch (NFNB).
We’re providing best-practice management advice to growers and industry We continue to provide non-chemical and chemical management advice through the development of integrated disease management strategies.
We’re speeding up detection We're working on a suite of high throughput technologies for faster lab-based and in-field detection and quantification of fungicide resistance.
