Better prediction and management of Rhizoctonia disease risk in cereals

Plain text source: 
Rhizoctonia bare patch disease remains an important but unpredictable disease for cereals in the southern Australian agricultural region... Management of natural disease suppressive ability of soils has been suggested as a potential solution to control Rhizoctonia bare patch disease... The project will address (i) the shorter-term solutions such as rotation, tillage and fungicides to reduce disease incidence and increase plant growth and yield and (ii) will develop new knowledge that will assist in a longer-term control of Rhizoctonia through improving our understanding and management of natural soil suppressive activity & improved prediction of disease occurrence...
