Early prediction of soilborne disease could cut losses.. DAFWA project leader Martin Harries said soilborne diseases were a major cost to the cropping industry, estimated to cause losses in WA of about $100 million per year in cereals alone... "There is scope to reduce these losses through management actions - such as choice of crop type or application of fungicide seed dressings - if these pathogens can be more accurately detected and quantified prior to sowing," he said...
