Survey of field pea crops and blackspot in Hart region locations
Aims

To identify management decisions that impact on blackspot in field peas and to validate disease risk predictions from Blackspot Manager.

Key messages
  • From 2007 to 2009 field pea crops in the Hart district were sown in an even spread from early May through to June.
  • The majority of crops were within 500 m of field pea stubble from the previous year.
  • Blackspot was most severe in early sown crops adjacent to field pea stubble.
  • There was a significant relationship between predictions of disease risk made by Blackspot Manager and the disease severity observed in these crops.
