Abstract

[Introduction]:
Root-lesion nematodes are microscopic thread-like animals that live in soil and plant roots. Plant roots that are damaged by the nematodes are inefficient at taking-up water and nutrients, causing up to 65% yield loss in intolerant wheat varieties. Pratylenchus thornei is found in approximately 70% of fields in the northern grain region. Management of the root-lesion nematode Pratylenchus thornei requires:

Growing tolerant wheat varieties so that yields are maximised

Rotating with two or more successive resistant crops so that populations of the nematodes decrease.
