This is the latest Cereal Rust Report for 2014:

Issue 4: Cereal rust situation update, October 2014

Cereal rust situation update, October 2014

The widespread growth of volunteer cereals enabled earlier than expected infections of many cereal rusts this season. It is recommended that Victorian growers carefully monitor crops for the new wheat leaf rust
pathotype.

The Australian Cereal Rust Survey provides free diagnostics of rust samples. Readers are encouraged to submit samples to confirm rust identity and for pathotype analysis.
