Crown Rot – A growing challenge for Australian cereal producers

Now being detected across vast areas of the Australian wheat belt, crown rot is estimated to cost wheat, durum and barley growers $404 million in lost yield annually (Murray and Brennan 2019). It’s out there and whether you see the symptoms or not the disease persists after harvest, ready to re-infect subsequent cereal crops. In partnership with industry, Syngenta is supporting the implementation of integrated management strategies for crown rot, including uptake of PREDICTA® B soil and stubble testing. 

Test now, plan ahead and understand your crown rot risk. Together let’s take the fight to crown rot.
