- ... Soil-borne plant root disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG8 is prevalent in cereal farming systems worldwide, particularly in semiarid agricultural regions. A controlled environment study was undertaken using three Australian soils to test the hypothesis that OM input from crop roots and residues decreases infection by Rhizoctonia root rot via biologically mediated disease suppression. The spec ...

- ... KEY MESSAGE : A whole genome average interval mapping approach identified eight QTL associated with P. thornei resistance in a DH population from a cross between the synthetic-derived wheat Sokoll and cultivar Krichauff. Pratylenchus thornei are migratory nematodes that feed and reproduce within the wheat root cortex, causing cell death (lesions) resulting in severe yield reductions globally. Geno ...
