Abstract

Very dry conditions throughout much of eastern Australia in 2018 resulted in low overall disease incidence in cereal crops.
At the time of writing, rust reports in cereals were limited to: wheat leaf rust in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia; barley leaf rust in SA and WA; and oat crown rust in Queensland, NSW, Victoria and WA. Wheat stripe rust was reported in Victoria’s high-rainfall zone and NSW’s central west and south-west slopes, while single samples were also recorded in Tasmania’s Midlands region and SA’s Roseworthy.
In view of the generally low 2018 disease incidence, it was surprising to see severe stem rust develop in several barley crops in south-east Queensland from October.
Reports of stem rust-infected crops were received from Brigalow, Chinchilla, Dalby and Jandowae, Queensland.
