Abstract

Summer crop paddocks across northern New South Wales, southern Queensland and central Queensland, were surveyed to monitor fungal and bacterial diseases present in the 2018-2019 summer cropping season. In comparison to the 2017-2018 season, it was drier (Figure 1), making it unfavourable for most grain crop diseases to develop. Observations for maize, mungbean, sorghum, soybean and sunflower are presented.
