Septoria Nodorum Blotch of Wheat
Using genetic techniques, our program is developing strategies that target the pathogen causing SNB, to help breeders develop wheat varieties with improved disease resistance.
Yellow Spot of Wheat
Yellow spot is Australia's most economically damaging crop disease. Our program is helping to minimise the cost of this disease to growers, through the use of molecular techniques.
Pulse Pathology and Genetics
We're trying to improve the profitability and yield stability of pulses, through improved surveillance, selection tools for breeding programs as well as integrated management strategies.
Net Blotch of Barley
Our research uses a combination of genetic, genomic and proteomic approaches to isolate effector proteins and to better understand this damaging barley disease.
Powdery Mildew of Barley
Our Powdery Mildew Program looks for durable resistance genes within cultivar collections, landraces and exotic barley lines to help deliver more stably resistant barley cultivars.
Sclerotinia Stem Rot of Canola
CCDM's newest program aims to combat sclerotinia stem rot by looking at all viable options, including genetics, breeding and fungicides, to help develop disease resistant germplasm.
Fungicide Resistance Group
We're trying to understand how fungi are able to develop fungicide resistance - this will enable us to help minimise the impact and delay the worst effects.
Improved Farming Systems
Our team works with growers and the wider industry, working to develop economical IDM strategies to all fungal diseases within different farming systems.
Our Bioinformatics program uses cutting edge technologies to study plant and microbial genomes and host-pathogen interactions.
