Effects of pachymetra root rot and nematodes on some elite sugarcane clones in Australia
PACHYMETRA ROOT ROT and nematodes are the two most important soil-borne pathogens of sugarcane in Australia. An experiment was established in Yandaran, Queensland in grey forest soil with high Pachymetra spore counts (>100 ...
Bioassay for comparing levels of pythium graminicola in soils
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 ...
Does rotating cultivars with intermediate resistance influence pachymetra root rot of sugarcane : ASSCT peer-reviewed paper
Concerns have been raised by industry members over lower than expected cane yields associated with high oospore levels in sugarcane cultivars rated to have intermediate resistance to pachymetra root rot. This is a significant ...
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 ...
