Volume 14 Issue 5 – Cereal rust situation, mid-winter 2016
Growers are urged to monitor crops for all rusts, in particular wheat leaf rust, after samples of all cereal rusts except stripe rust have been received in 2016 at the Australian Cereal Rust Survey at the University of Sydney’s Plant Breeding Institute.
There have been reports of wheat leaf rust from multiple sites across Victoria and the Eyre Peninsula, with recent weather conditions likely to have distributed wheat leaf rust across the SA, Vic and southern NSW wheatbelt.
