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. ...
The effect of sugarcane rust (Puccinia melanocephala) on yield
This report details the results obtained from two trials to assess yeild loss caused by sugarcane rust and also outlines the epiphytotiology of the rust disease.
Development of a fungicide spray schedule to determine the effect of sugarcane rust (Puccinia melanocephala) on yield
This study reports on work carried out to develop a fungicide spray program which is suitable for yield loss assessment investigations. Aspects examined include the efficacy of various concentrations of chlorothalonil and ...

The role of Pythium species in yield decline in Southern cane growing districts : SRDC final report BS80S
Yield decline has been demonstrated in all established canegrowing regions of Queensland. Field and glasshouse studies with soil fumigants have shown that yield decline is largely caused by soilborne biological factors. ...
