Managing crown rot through crop sequencing and row placement

Plain text source: 
Sow the following wheat crop directly over the row of the previous years break crop and NOT between the old rows.. What the experiment has shown is that simply alternating row placement in consecutive years will not result in yield gains but a yield loss and increased CR (BO system)... Even the traditional on row system (OO) had a better yield and CR outcome than the BO system because the break crop was sown directly over the old wheat stubble row excavating the residue out of the row (tyne with spear points) and providing a direct break to the CR fungus (see Table 2 and 3)...
