Present and future management options to control Rhizoctonia disease in wheat
Hüberli, D., Miyan, S., Connor, M. and MacLeod, W.J. (2012) Present and future management options to control Rhizoctonia disease in wheat. In: 2012 WA Agribusiness Crop Updates, 28 - 29 February, Perth, Western Australia
Rhizoctonia bare-patch (R. solani AG8) is a major problem across WA's cereal growing regions and is estimated to reduce WA state-wide cereal yields by 1 % to 5% annually. Australia has one registered fungicide for use on seed which claims to suppress rather than control the disease. Current management practices to minimise the impacts of Rhizoctonia bare-patch in WA are combinations of, cultivation with fungicide seed-dressing and adequate nutrition. Alternative fungicides and/or delivery methods (such as liquid injection) would provide greater flexibility for management of Rhizoctonia bare-patch.
Our aim was to determine the efficacy of current management options to control R. solani and the future options which will become available during the next few years.
