We are conducting a series of trials to establish if varieties which have a higher crown rot resistance rating are beneficial in the southern NSW farming region and if the currently grown more susceptible varieties show effective tolerance... To yield we have assessed the extent of crown rot infection that occurred in the varieties (Figure 2)... The results contrast to previous findings in Victoria and will require validation in the current season as we continue to monitor what happens to the level of inoculum and its ability to infect plants in 2013...
