Information Session: SDHI resistance in SFNB

1.30pm AWST

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.
