Pr. Martin Barbetti

Pr. Martin Barbetti
Keynote session 5. Integrated disease managment

Prof Martin Barbetti is recognised internationally for his numerous contributions over many years to crop protection research.

His contributions focus mainly on providing a better understanding of the epidemiology and management of a wide range of foliar and soilborne pathogens across a diverse array of broad-acre and horticultural crops. His findings have been widely adopted to improve disease control. Martin comes from a farming background and was a plant pathologist at the Department of Primary Production and Regional Development Western Australia before he joined the University of Western Australia in 2004. A major focus of his research has been on diseases of oilseed Brassicas and forage legumes. He has more than 30 years of experience researching diseases of oilseed and vegetable Brassicas, forage and crop legumes, cereals and a diverse array of horticultural crops. Practical findings from his research have greatly helped growers to improve their disease management procedures.

He has published >270 refereed scientific papers across a wide range of crop-pathogen combinations, and a similar number of extension and conference articles. He has an extensive track record in building collaborations across international (e.g., India, China, Europe, and Africa) and national research institutions, including academia, government and farmers, as evidenced by the large number of co-authored publications arising from these connections.
