Row spacing x disease management x stubble, MRZ Wimmera (Rupanyup), Victoria locations
Aims
  • To investigate if optimum disease management strategies change in different row spacings in
    standing and burnt residue across a range of chickpea varieties, differing in ascochyta blight
    susceptibility.
Key messages
  • Under higher disease pressure it is still economically beneficial to actively manage ascochyta blight through regular fungicide application even in moderately resistant varieties.
