    Fungicide resistance in canola crops with Dr Steve Marcroft

    Fungicide resistance in canola crops with Dr Steve Marcroft

    Generous rain and high prices have increased the economic risk from Sclerotinia and blackleg of canola this season. Dr Steve Marcroft outlines the very real risk of fungicide resistance developing in blackleg of canola in Australia - and how growers can achieve sustainable disease control.

    General fungicide resistance management with Dr Kylie Ireland

    General fungicide resistance management with Dr Kylie Ireland

    The 'Fungicide Resistance Five' is the basis for an integrated disease management strategy that growers can use on-farm to reduce fungicide resistance pressure on crop pathogens.

    This six-part podcast series, produced through the Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network (AFREN), unpacks the individual elements of the strategy to inform growers why and how they should minimise the risk of fungicide resistance developing in their paddocks.

    AFREN is a significant GRDC investment that brings together a national network of regional plant pathologists, fungicide resistance experts and communications and extension specialists. It is co-ordinated through the Centre for Crop Disease Management (CCDM), a co-investment between the GRDC and Curtin University.
