Crown rot and nematodes

Plain text source: 
Two durum and 10 bread wheat varieties were evaluated in the presence of added or no added crown inoculum across 11 field sites in 2013... Where no additional CR was added EGA Gregory had similar yield to other varieties at sites with low background levels of crown rot but was between -0.52 t/ha (Suntop ) to -0.37 t/ha (Sunguard ) lower yielding at sites with medium-high background levels of crown rot... Some newer wheat varieties have a measurable improvement in their tolerance to crown rot but these current levels are not a complete solution to crown rot...
