Smut-proofing the Australian industry - ensuring a reliable cane supply through reduced genetic vulnerability to sugarcane smut
Since the smut incursion and subsequent spread of the disease breeding for smut resistance has become an essential priority for the BSES-CSIRO Variety Improvement program. The strategy that has been adopted includes the ...
Estimating disease-associated yield losses in breeding selection trials - Endemic diseases; Pachymetra root rot, orange rust and yellow spot
Previous work has shown that plant improvement stage 3 selection trials can be used to assess the relationship between yield and disease resistance with particular Queensland endemic diseases - principally Pachymetra root ...
Further characterisation of pathogenicity genes from Leifsonia xyli subsp. xyli, causal organism of ratoon stunting disease : SRDC final project report BSS203
In a previous SRDC/CRCTPP/BSES-funded project, a gene from the sugarcane pathogen Leifsonia xyli subsp. xyli (Lxx) was tagged by transposon mutagenesis, cloned and sequenced, and, based on DNA homology searches, was found ...
East Timor rice fields - rat control training program
The objective of this mission was to rapidly facilitate changes in farm practices that will minimise crop losses due to rodents in East Timor. Five 3 day workshops were conducted across East Timor and included participants ...
Review of the green grassy shoot disease (GGSD) situation in Nghe An Province
Green grassy shoot disease (GGSD) has been rapidly escalating. Without further research and extension assistance, GGSD has great potential to cripple production in Vietnam. The visit has provided a great deal of new ...
BSS249 : Preparedness for borer incursion : Summary of effectiveness of Tebufenozide for control of sugarcane stemborers
Following a search of the literature and discussions with entomologists in Papua New Guinea and Louisiana, tebufenozide (Mimic?, Confirm? or RH-5992) was identified as a potential highly useful candidate insecticide for ...
Screening of Australian germplasm for resistance to sugarcane smut - SRDC final project report BSS214
Sugarcane smut is a destructive disease that has spread to all commercial sugarcane production areas except Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the east coast of Australia. The disease was recorded for the first time in Australia ...
Review of moth-borer resistance screening and report on visit to SASRI
Information on procedures for screening sugarcane varieties for resistance to moth borers and associated research was obtained by a search of literature and by a 2-week visit to SASRI
Technical assessment of survival of smut spores in bales of sugarcane trash
This assessment considers the survival of smut spores in relation to the proposal to store baled trash until there was a low risk of viable spores being present.
Sugarcane-orientated quarantine training program : SRDC final report BSS274
This project continues the industry's commitment to sugarcane biosecurity, and is a further forward step extending the substantial knowledge developed in previous projects. The project was developed after the completion ...
