TOPICS Include:

  • Winter barley – does it have a place in regions with higher yield potential compared to spring germplasm? Dr Kenton Porker, SARDI

Winter barley is not a new crop but with a move to earlier sowing dates and a range of new European germplasm could that perception be changed. Dr Porker looks at the difference between winter and spring germplasm and its suitability for earlier sowing.

  • 2018 in season disease update. Dr Hugh Wallwork & Dr Marg Evans, SARDI

SARDI’s highly regarded senior pathologists Hugh Wallwork and Marg Evans discuss the latest developments in cereal crop pathology covering wheat, barley and oats.

  • Early sown wheat in the HRZ of SA – what are the key attributes for early sown wheat? Nick Poole, FAR Australia

Nick Poole discusses the management approaches that are most suitable for mid-April sowing dates and asks what characteristics we are looking for in a wheat cultivar sown at this time?

  • Septoria tritici blotch control in wheat. Tracey Wylie and Katherine Fuhrmann, FAR Australia.

Tracey Wylie and Kat Fuhrmann discuss the results of a GRDC funded project on Zymoseptoria tritici looking at the influence of fungicide application (timing and rates) for control of this pathogen and its interaction with genetic resistance.

  • Challenging the yield boundaries of barley. Amanda Pearce, SARDI and Michael Straight, FAR Australia.

Amanda Pearce and Michael Straight discuss the key elements of barley management in a first cereal rotation position using the MFMG funded research trial at the centre as a platform for discussion.
