Cereal rust situation update, July 2014

Samples received by the Australian Cereal Rust Survey at the Plant Breeding Institute in the last two weeks indicate that inoculum levels of wheat stripe rust and oat crown rust are increasing in eastern Australia. Barley leaf rust has been reported across the southern section of the Western Australian grain belt and the first sample of barley leaf rust in the eastern states has been received from NSW. Where known, details of current pathotypes and localities are provided in this issue.
