Root lesion nematode and crown rot - double trouble!

Daniel, Richard and Simpfendorfer, Steven and McMullen, Guy and Thompson, John ORCID: (2011) Root lesion nematode and crown rot - double trouble! In: 2011 GRDC Grains Research Update, Miles, 1 March 2011, Miles, Australia.


NGA have been involved in 22 field trials since 2007, in collaboration with I&I NSW, evaluating the impact of crown rot (CR) on a range of winter cereal crop types and varieties. This work has greatly improved our understanding of crown rot impact and variety tolerance, but also indicates we may be suffering significant yield losses from another ‘disease’ - that often goes unnoticed. Although the trials were not designed to focus on nematodes, a convincing trend was apparent after 2008 that indicated the root lesion nematode Pratylenchus thornei (Pt) was having a frequent and large impact on wheat variety yield.
