Cummins workshop to discuss cereal and canola fungicide resistance

Agronomists and grain growers are invited to attend a two-day workshop at Cummins from the Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network discussing the latest in cereal and canola disease and fungicide resistance management.

The workshop will take place at the Cummins Bowling Club on Monday, November 23 and Tuesday, November 24.

The first day will start at 9am and the second at 8am, with the second day to finish by 4pm.

There will be small group workshops that cover topics including cereal growth stages and spray decisions; where different fungicides fit; fungicide resistance management and resources; and management strategies in cereal and canola that consider the underlying risk of fungicide resistance.

Workshop facilitator John Cameron said attendees would gain valuable information.

"Coupling the fire power of Nick Poole, Steve Marcroft, Kylie Ireland and SARDI pathologists Hugh Wallwork and Tara Garrard with the field expertise of up to 20 leading agronomists, the discussion will be lively and targeted on issues of regional importance and how this is reflected in advice to growers," he said.

"It's a great mix, and all who attend, no matter how experienced, will pick up new and valued understanding."

Registration is essential, with the cost of $55 per person.
