Cereal Fungal Diseases

Fungi is the cause of most diseases that affect cereal crops. Fungi feed on the living plant which results in plant damage and consequently yield loss. Below are trials that focus on cereal fungal diseases, what they are, their impact on yield and options for management.

Regional crown rot management – Wongarbon

Steven Simpfendorfer1 , Greg Brooke2 , Ryan Potts3 and Robyn Shapland1

Aims:

Crown rot (CR), caused predominantly by the fungus Fusarium pseudograminearum (Fp), remains a major constraint to winter cereal production in the northern grains region. Cereal varieties differ in their resistance to crown rot, which can have a significant impact on their relative yield in the presence of this disease. This experiment was one of… read more
