Pulse Pathology and Genetics

The Pulse Pathology and Genetics Group is working to identify key pathogenicity factors in Ascochyta Blight – a pulse disease recognised as a major factor limiting profitability and is estimated to cost industry $84 million per year in disease control and yield losses.

Novel sources of resistance, closer surveillance of pathogen shifts, and integration of management strategies carried out by the Pulse Pathology and Genetics Group is helping to improve the profitability of pulses, therefore allowing pulses to be a realistic option in cropping rotations for Australian growers.
