Prediction of ARGT risk in southern Australia

Summary

To map quantitatively the incidence of the causative bacterium of the corynetoxin responsible for Annual Ryegrass Toxicity (ARGT) with respect to location distribution of the bacterium by location over time and with respect to weather patterns and weather incidents in order to provide a framework for use to predict likely incidence of ARGT and thus later to provide export hay and domestic fodder producers a tool to manage the risk of incidence of ARGT
