    • Bioassay for comparing levels of pythium graminicola in soils 

      Croft, BJ (1987)
      In the study of any soil borne pathogen it is essential to have some technique for determining the level of the pathogen in the soil. The levels of Pythium species in soil have been measured by soil dilution plating on ...
    • Characterisation and maintenance of the Australian sugarcane mapping populations 

      CSIRO. Plant Industry.; McIntyre, L (2003)
      There were two major aims to this project. The first was to identify markers linked to major diseases of sugarcane that were difficult and expensive to select for. The second objective was to determine the cross-transferability ...
    • Inheritance of resistance to pachymetra root rot 

      Croft, BJ; Berding, N (1994)
      Genetical resistance to root pathogens is a sensible strategy for disease control in a perennial crop such as sugarcane. Pachymetra root rot is a serious disease in Queensland and can cause losses of 30-40% in susceptible ...
    • Regular testing keeps Pachymetra from rearing its ugly head 

      Unknown author (Sugar Research Australia Limited, 2018)
      Ongoing vigilance is the key to keeping on top of Pachymetra for Tully grower George Henry.
    • Soil constraints to productivity improvement 

      Croft, BJ; Magarey, RC; Hurney, AP; Reghenzani, JR (1990)
      Yields of most crops are known to decrease if that crop is grown continuously without fallowing or rotation with other crop species. Sugarcane has been grown continuously on many fields in Queensland for 50-100 years. ...
