AbstractThe aim of this study was to compare the economics of the existing RSD control strategy in Australia of disease-free seed and disinfecting harvesters with breeding cultivars resistant to RSD. Analysis presented in this paper show that an effective disease-free seed scheme is economically the best RSD control strategy. Cultivar resistance would only be attractive if disease-free seed ceased to be a viable option.
