Workshop facilitator John Cameron said “The 2024 foliar disease and resistance workshops continue on from previous, highly regarded, workshops providing the latest research on foliar disease and resistance in canola and cereals.”

“When you put Nick Poole from FAR Australia alongside resistance expert Fran Lopez from CCDM and key regional pathologists and mix this with the field expertise of 20 leading agronomists, the discussion will be lively and targeted on issues of regional importance and how this is reflected in advice to growers. It’s a great mix, and all who attend – no matter how experienced, will pick up new and valued understanding.”

These ‘small group’ workshops cover:
  • Cereal growth stages and spray decisions
  • Where different fungicides fit
  • Fungicide resistance management and resources
  • Integrating fungicides, varieties, epidemiology, and seasons for fun and profit
  • Cereal canopy management interactions with foliar disease decision making
  • Management strategies that consider the underlying risk of fungicide resistance
  • Strategies for managing SDHI and other resistance issues, including net blotches in barley and triazole resistance in powdery mildew
  • Canola/pulse disease management & fungicide resistance considerations (location specific)
Feedback from previous attendees:
  • “An excellent workshop with very knowledgeable speakers. Good mix of presentations and opportunity for discussion. Good to see some research data backing up presentation’s and also the discussion between presenters and knowledge in the room"
  • “Great workshop, information was very useful and went back to field level. Can't beat the group discussion and questions”
  • “Really good workshop, was relatable and easy to understand and apply to paddock situations”
These small group workshops will run for 2-days. Participant numbers are limited to ensure active participation and discussion. Workshops start at 9:00am day 1, 8:00am day 2 and finish day 2 by 4:00pm. Registration is essential to secure your place.
