Innovative nursery management solutions to sustainably manage root disease, improve nursery utilization, and enhance resilience and productivity of planted pines

Root-borne diseases are increasingly affecting tree production nurseries, lowering productivity and profitability. This project will improve nursery management by defining the right balance of fertilizer, fungicide and microbial inoculum to break the disease cycle, and use field trials to refine treatments to improve establishment and resilience post-planting.

Identifying new resistance genes for Panama Tropical Race 4

This project will identify new genetic material associated with resistance to the banana disease Panama Tropical Race 4, with the aim of developing a range of molecular markers. These will be used to screen germplasm in international breeding programs to identify lines and varieties that will ultimately be used by Australian banana growers.

PDS: Feeding Grain on Grass

This project will fund a demonstration site for producers in central west and northern New South Wales, to demonstrate the benefits of using forage and grain feed tests to develop a grain ration to supplement livestock that are grazing forage crops. Supplementary feeding increases liveweight gain and enables improved production efficiency and increased profitability.

National Fruit Fly Council Phase 4

This project continues funding for the National Fruit Fly Council (NFFC), which consists of federal and state governments, industry representatives and research funders who strategically coordinate fruit fly management in Australia. Fruit fly is one of the biggest trade barriers for horticulture products. In 2016 the cost to Australia was estimated to be $300 million due to control measures and international trade restrictions.
