STEM RUST is one of the most serious diseases of wheat and is of world-wide importance.
Fortunately, widespread epidemics are rare in Western Australia because the general climatic conditions are usually unfavourable to the disease.
Nevertheless, localised outbreaks of stem rust are quite common on the Esperance Plains and around Geraldton where seasonal conditions are frequently mild and humid.
