Fungicides for control of wheat stripe rust in central-west NSW locations
Aims
  • To assess the potential for yield and quality responses from controlling Stripe Rust (SR) in several wheat varieties with differing levels of SR resistance in central-west (CW) NSW.
  • To assess the level of stripe rust control achieved by using different fungicide products including seed dressings, fertiliser dressing and foliar sprays.
Key messages
  • Stripe Rust (SR) caused yield losses in all but the highly resistant variety Sunstate (8) at most sites.
  • Fungicides helped to protect yield potentials in susceptible varieties, except when SR pressure was either very low or very high.
  • Timely early and late protection appeared more important than fungicide choice at Z39
  • The genetic resistance in Sunstate (8) was clearly the most outstanding form of SR control when disease pressure was very high, exceeding any fungicide strategy used on susceptible varieties.
  • Fungicide protection of SR on susceptible varieties is a practical and profitable option in the absence of resistant wheat varieties with desired agronomic traits.
