Nematodes and crown rot a costly union

Livingston is one of few varieties that has moderate tolerance to root lesion nematodes (RLN), along with other desirable features... The researchers concluded that where Pt combines with high levels of crown rot (a common scenario), yield losses can be exacerbated if varieties are susceptible to Pt. Instead of a 10 per cent yield loss from Pt in a susceptible variety it could be 30 to 50 per cent if crown rot is combined with a Pt-intolerant variety...
