Keep paddocks “free for February”

GROWERS are urged to keep paddocks “free for February” to minimise the risk of diseases and pests surviving on a green bridge.

SARDI pathologist Dr Hugh Wallwork said, while a longer break without weeds would provide improved control and potential yield benefits, if all growers kept paddocks bare for February, the risk of rusts and other disease and pest threats would be significantly reduced.

“It is critical growers eradicate the green bridge as rust pathogens rely on green leaf material to survive and pass onto crops in the next season,” Dr Wallwork said.
