1- Advancing diagnostics for monitoring and management of fungicide resistance in grapevine

  • Optimise high-throughput laboratory testing
  • Optimise in-field testing, Develop sampling protocols
  • Monitor fungicide resistance
  • Develop assays to detect new resistance markers

2- Improving the understanding of fungicide resistance in Australian viticulture

  • Determine the sensitivity of E. necator, B. cinerea and P. viticola to selected fungicides
  • Increase knowledge about the relationships between phenotype, genotype and field efficacy.
  • Evaluate spore trapping technologies

3- Validation of Net Form Net Blotch (NFNB) toxins/virulence factors in disease and as a selection tool- (GRDC funded project)

Other research questions:

  1. How does Pyrenophora teres fungus cause net form net blotch (NFNB) disease in barley?
  2. Contribution of Proteinaceous toxins to NFNB disease development in barley.
  3. Molecular Plant-Pathogen Interaction especially virulence factors and effectors.
