Mark McLean

Plant Pathologist, Agriculture Victoria, Horsham, Victoria.

Dr Mark McLean is a plant pathologist with 15 years experience in cereal field crop foliar disease management. Mark completed a PhD in the epidemiology and control of spot form of net blotch and has published papers in scientific journals on the management of foliar diseases such scald, spot and net form of net blotch of barley, and yellow leaf spot of wheat. His research focuses on using integrated disease management strategies that incorporate cultivation of disease-resistant varieties, cultural management strategies and fungicide application to minimise the production loss due to foliar diseases of wheat, barley, and oats. His research has also identified novel sources of host plant resistance to spot form of net blotch which can be incorporated into future barley varieties. Dr McLean works in collaboration with other pathologists in Australia and internationally.
