SA WORKSHOPS: 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).

"Coupling the fire power of Nick Poole, Steve Marcroft, Kylie Ireland and SARDI pathologists Hugh Wallwork & Tara Garrard with the field expertise of up to 20 leading agronomists, the discussion will be lively and targeted on issues of regional importance and how this is reflected in advice to growers. It’s a great mix, and all who attend – no matter how experienced, will pick up new and valued understanding," workshop facilitator John Cameron said.

These ‘small group’ workshops cover:

  • Cereal growth stages and spray decisions
  • Where different fungicides fit
  • Fungicide resistance management and resources
  • Integrating fungicides, varieties, epidemiology, and seasons for fun and profit
  • Cereal canopy management interactions with foliar disease decision making
  • Management strategies in cereal and canola that consider the underlying risk of fungicide resistance
  • Strategies for managing SDHI and other resistance issues, including net blotches in barley and triazole resistance in powdery mildew
