Sugarcane smut (Ustilago scitaminea) was identiJied for theJirst time in Australia in the Ord River Irrigation Area (ORIA), in the semi-arid tropics of Western Australia, in July 1998. Commercial sugarcane production began in the ORlA in 1995. The ORIA is about 1600 kin from sugarcane production areas along the eastern seaboard of Australia and 2500 km from Java, where high levels of smut are known to occur. In surveys up to October 1998, smut was found on nine farms; however, the main…

Management of an incursion of sugarcane smut in Australia

DNA fingerprinting of the smut isolates collected from Western Australia and Indonesia showed that the isolates were identical, and screening of isolates from around the world showed little variation except in Thailand, Philippines and Taiwan where there was significant variation between isolates within this region and with isolate from all other countries.

Genetic variation in a worldwide collection of the sugarcane smut fungus Ustilago scitaminea.

The DNA fingerprinting technique of amplified fragment length polymorphisms was used to assess genetic variation between isolates of the sugarcane smut fungus, and revealed a low level of variation at the genomic DNA level, but a divergent group of isolates from Southeast Asia was identified.

A Mini-Review on Smut Disease of Sugarcane Caused by Sporisorium scitamineum

Smut of sugarcane is caused by the fungus Ustilago scitmainea (Sydow, 1924). The first report of the disease incidence came from Natal, South Africa in 1877 as reported by Luthra et al., (1940) and

SUGARCANE SMUT IN QUEENSLAND

The incidence of sugarcane smut in Bundaberg–Isis, Central Queensland and the Herbert River regions and the future implications for the Australian sugar industry are reported on.

Sugarcane smut in Queensland: arrival and emergency response

Sugarcane smut, caused by the fungus Ustilago scitaminea, was reported for the first time in Queensland on 8 June 2006 and was subsequently identified in the Mackay region on 6 November 2006 and in the Herbert River region on 15 December 2006.

SUGARCANE SMUT was found for the first time in Queensland on 8 June 2006 in the Farnsfield district near Childers. The first finding was in the variety Q205. An emergency response to the incursion

Diagnosis and Control of Sugarcane Important Diseases

20 diseases that commonly occur in sugarcane production are systematically described in this chapter with clear-colored photos and scientific, accurate words.

Sugarcane disease management for the 21st century - contributions of the CRC for tropical plant protection

Research at CRC-TPP has made significant progress in identifying markers for resistance genes in sugarcane for brown rust and pachymetra root rot and has helped identify genes in the bacterium responsible for ratoon stunting disease that are critical in allowing it to cause disease.

Effect of soil factors on parasitic nematodes of sugarcane in KwaZulu- Natal, South Africa.

It has been shown that a large number of endoparasites would be needed to reduce sett root weights and organic amendments were used in this study not only as screens to protect sugarcane roots from nematodes attacks but also to manipulate nematode communities for the less pathogenic species, H. dihystera.

QUANTIFYING RISK OF LOSS FROM SUGARCANE DISEASES AND OTHER VARIETY RELATED CAUSES

SEVERE crop losses occurred following the outbreak of orange rust (Puccinia kuehnii) in the variety Q124 for the 2000 Queensland crop. The losses were most severe in the central district where Q124
