Aims

Cereal disease management and diagnostics: What we learned in 2021 to improve management in 2022

Key messages

• Favourable climatic conditions in 2021 resulted in the increased prevalence of a range of cereal diseases across NSW, especially the wheat leaf diseases stripe rust, septoria tritici blotch (STB) and yellow leaf spot (YLS).
• In combination with increased cereal stubble loads produced in 2021, pathogen levels are likely to be elevated again in 2022.
• Predicted La Niña conditions over summer will maintain or increase the risk of stripe rust in 2022.
• Multiple stripe rust pathotypes were prevalent across NSW in 2021. Keep up to date with the latest varietal resistance ratings.
• Minimise disease impacts in 2022 by using an integrated approach to management.
• NSW DPI plant pathologists can assist with correct diagnosis and advice on appropriate management options.
