Cereal rust situation, September 2016

Samples of wheat leaf rust, barley leaf rust, oat crown rust and oat stem rust have been received in 2016 at the Australian Cereal Rust Survey at the University of Sydney’s Plant Breeding Institute.

Recent weather conditions across large areas of the cereal growing regions are likely to favour rust development.
