GRDC Request for Tender: fungicide resistance in the Southern Region

Request for tender: Regional communication and extension for growers and advisors to understand the status, risks and management of fungicide resistance in the Southern Region (PROC-9175515).

The GRDC seeks to conduct extension and communication activities to enhance the understanding of growers and advisors across the Southern region of the risks and impacts of fungicide resistance and to promote reduced reliance on fungicides by adopting integrated disease management strategies. The program will deliver increased knowledge of the principles of fungicide resistance management and how to apply these principles on-farm.

By 30 April 2020, a minimum of 300 growers and advisors from across the Southern Region understand the relative risk for the development of fungicide resistance to particular modes of action for specific combinations of crop type, pathogen and environment, and will implement strategies to abate and manage fungicide resistance
