Since the smut incursion and subsequent spread of the disease breeding for smut resistance has become an essential priority for the BSES-CSIRO Variety Improvement program. The strategy that has been adopted includes the ...
Screening of Australian germplasm for resistance to sugarcane smut - SRDC final project report BSS214
Sugarcane smut is a destructive disease that has spread to all commercial sugarcane production areas except Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the east coast of Australia. The disease was recorded for the first time in Australia ...
Resistance mechanisms and selection for resistance in sugarcane to sugarcane weevil borer : SRDC final report BSS15
This project primarily sought to determine resistance mechanisms and selection mechanisms for resistance in sugarcane to SWB (Sugarcane weevil borer). As such it addressed the SRDC strategies of developing more productive ...
Inheritance of resistance to pachymetra root rot : SRDC final report BS27S
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 ...
