KSU wheat blast visit
Peter has just returned from visiting the Wheat Blast team at Kansas State University. Wheat blast is one of the more serious global wheat diseases emerging, and with an outbreak now recorded in Bangladesh, the threat to Australia is a significant. The visit to KSU was valuable in learning more about this disease and also in establishing collaborations to consider its impact in Australia.
