Pratylenchus teres WAs home grown Root Lesion Nematode

Plain text source: 
By screening and field testing the resistance and tolerance of wheat and barley cultivars, relevant information can be supplied to allow growers to incorporate cultivars into rotations that limit the populations of and damage caused by nematodes... Significant yield impacts occurred for wheat varieties assessed in Toodyay 2012 when comparing yield to nematode numbers at anthesis (Table 2)... Coupled with resistance data, these results indicate Emu Rock may be only moderately susceptible but very intolerant to P. teres while the other varieties are intolerant but range in levels of susceptibility to the pest...
