Stripe and stem rust management for 2007 locations

To discuss how to manage pests and diseases to optimise crop production whilst still managing costs.

Key messages
  • The risk of rust outbreaks in 2007 will be high if there is a build up of inoculum on volunteer cereals over summer.
  • Rust diseases will need to be managed to protect returns.
  • Resistant varieties are the best form of management where possible.
