Grain growers and advisers are invited to take part in a national Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network (AFREN) survey to gauge awareness of fungicide resistance issues and management.
Whether you consider yourself an expert, a responsible fungicide user, or just want an idea of how your current knowledge measures up, your participation will be valuable to AFREN’s ongoing fungicide resistance extension work.
Wheat growers are being urged to monitor the effectiveness of fungicides this season after the common wheat disease, Septoria tritici blotch (STB), was discovered to be resistant to Group 11 fungicides (strobilurins).
A new Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) podcast series aims to help growers understand how fungicide resistance develops and how they can prevent it from becoming an issue in their cropping programs.
New South Wales and Victorian grain growers are urged to be on alert following confirmation that difficulties experienced in 2020 controlling wheat powdery mildew are linked to resistance of the pathogen to demethylase inhibitor (DMI, Group 3) fungicides.
With the right support, growers and advisers can successfully manage and prevent fungicide resistance.
With the increasing use of fungicides for disease control in crops over the past 20 years, there has been a corresponding rise in cases of fungicide resistance in many common pathogens.
Latest fungicide resistance research has once again reinforced the value of integrated disease management strategies
Latest fungicide resistance research, led by the Centre for Crop and Disease Management (CCDM) in collaboration with plant pathologists from Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development – DPIRD has once again reinforced the value in growers adopting integrated disease management strategies for their crops.
A new GRDC podcast gives you the perfect introduction to the Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network (AFREN), including the range of resources you can access and how to limit your fungicide resistance risk.
AFREN launches small group workshops on managing cereal and canola foliar diseases and fungicide resistance
Agronomists and grain growers are invited to discuss the cutting edge of cereal and canola disease and fungicide resistance management in a 2-day GRDC-supported workshop, brought to you by the Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network (AFREN).
Western Australian growers are 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 WA grainbelt.
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.
FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WEBINARS
AFREN recently hosted a series of regionally focused webinars to discuss recent fungicide resistance developments and issues relevant to each growing region.
Contact us for an event
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.
