The Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network (AFREN) wants to hear from grain growers and advisers to understand the level of knowledge they have when it comes to managing fungicide resistance.
Barley growers are advised to monitor their crops for early signs of fungicide resistance, with research uncovering new developments in the resistance to fungicides in a common barley disease of the southern cropping region.
Grain growers will have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of fungicide resistance issues over coming weeks, thanks to a series of webinars being delivered by the Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network (AFREN).
Information Session: SDHI resistance in SFNB
Growers have been urged to be on alert following the discovery of succinate dehydrogenase (SDHI, Group 7) resistance in spot form of net blotch (SFNB) in barley crops in the Western Australian grainbelt.
The fungicide resistance marks the first time SDHI resistance in barley SFNB has been confirmed in Australia.
Join CCDM’s fungicide resistance expert Fran Lopez-Ruiz and CCDM researcher Wesley Mair to learn more about this new resistance.

If you’re interested in having one of our team present an information session on fungicide resistance to your grower or advisory group, please get in touch.
We have regional pathologists in all states, and can deliver online via an interactive Zoom or meet in person if COVID-restrictions allow.
Share your experiences with fungal pathogens and fungicide resistance with AFREN and other farmers. Upload photos of fungal infections in your crops, or your stories of fungicide resistance.
Please provide as much information as possible in the upload form.
