Evaluating stripe rust management strategies for wheat in 2004 and 2005 locations
Aims

To evaluate stripe rust management strategies for wheat in 2004 & 2005.

Key messages
  • Selecting wheat varieties with stripe rust resistance (rating 7-8) is the most effective form of managing the disease, however the limited number of varieties with the combination of desirable agronomic traits and sufficient resistance will see the continued need for fungicide control strategies
  • Yields of H45 (very susceptible to stripe rust) were maximised by keeping the crop free from disease until flag emergence and, most critically in high yielding situations, following up with a foliar fungicide.
