Abstract

As the 2018/19 summer cropping season draws to a close, sorghum growers are once again confronted with an unfortunate all too familiar problem with charcoal rot and lodging in their paddocks (Figures 1, 2 and 3). This summer season was a text-book case where conditions were ideal for the disease to develop, hot and dry.
Due to the recent issues experienced by growers with charcoal rot, University of Southern Queensland (USQ) is working with the GRDC to collect data from agronomists and growers via a simple survey that will help understand what factors drive disease development and what the associated yield losses may be. If you are a grower or agronomist and are interested in contributing to this work, please contact Dante Adorada by email: dante.adorada@usq.edu.au or by phone: (07) 4631 1262 for more information or download the survey form and send it back to Dante at the e-mail address provided.
