In August, Peter, Megan and Lauren from the Solomon Lab attended the International Congress on Plant Pathology in Beijing. The meeting was a fantastic opportunity to catch up with what was happening in plant pathology and to hear about some of the new techniques emerging. We would like to thank the GRDC for their support in attending the meeting and a summary can be found on page 29 of the November-December 2013 issue of Ground Cover.
In October members of the Solomon Lab were hosted by Dr Andrew Milgate (NSW DPI) on a tour of various infected wheat and barley at Wagga wagga. This was a fantastic opportunity to have a look at the diseases in the field that we normally only see under a microscope!
