Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network (AFREN 2)

The development of fungicide resistance and the limitation of available fungicide Mode of Actions is an ongoing issue for grain growers.

The investment CUR1905-001SAX Australian Fungicide Resistance Extension Network (AFREN), led by Curtin University, has successfully engaged a network of experts in plant pathology and fungicide resistance to develop consistent messaging and management strategies to combat the development of fungicide resistance in grain crops. A platform of resources has been developed and information delivered directly to growers and advisers through a series of workshops across Australia, which have improved the baseline knowledge and understanding of fungicide resistance development and management strategies.

This investment will ensure that the network of plant pathologists and fungicide resistance experts is maintained to extend existing information and new research information to the grain industry via dynamic communication and extension activities.
