Cereal root disease alert

GRAIN growers who have experienced a dry season are being warned of a potential increase in the risk of some soilborne diseases in 2019.

A lack of rain has reduced the breakdown of cereal stubbles in pulse and oilseed break crops, promoting the risk of disease next season.
