|Title:||Risk Assessment Of Exotic Plant Diseases To The Australian Rice Industry, With Emphasis on Rice Blast|
Ash, G. J
|Keywords:||Disease risk assessment|
|Series/Report no.:||Program 2|
|Abstract:||A pest risk assessment was carried out using all available information found in the literature and also two softwares developed by the CSIRO, CLIMEX and DYMEX. CLIMEX was used to assess the suitability of the climate in Australian rice growing area for each pest/disease and then when necessary and possible, a pest/disease model was created with DYMEX and run with Australian climatic data. The Australian climatic conditions and/or the rice growing practices were found to be unfavourable for the majority of the exotic diseases. However, two diseases of rice (rice blast and kernel smut) and one plant parasitic nematode genus (root nematodes) were identified as having the potential to threaten the Australian rice industry if ever introduced in south eastern Australia.|
