Grains Industry Research Scholarship - Paul Mellroy (CSP) Effects of CO2 on the epidemiology of crown rot infection in resistant and susceptible wheat cultivars

Plain text source: 
Studies on crown rot will be carried out under current ambient CO2 and double ambient CO2 environments in the field and glasshouse... A second experiment in the glasshouse will focus on the disease development over the life-cycle of these wheat cultivars and evaluate their performance under ambient and double ambient CO2 and temperature to identify mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to crown rot... A third experiment in a controlled environment facility will monitor for a change in pathogen fitness in wheat monoculture at ambient and double ambient CO2...
