Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The project has made excellent progress in identifying key genes linked to oxidative stress that, when mutated, make the model plant Arabidopsis highly susceptible to AG8... The project has also identified other genes whose expression is highly induced following R. solani infection in Arabidopsis and wheat... The exciting results were further supported by large scale analysis of gene expression that revealed the resistance to AG8 was associated with the activity of a number of genes linked to the generation of ROS and similar induction of ROS related genes was seen in wheat after AG8 infection using microarrays...

Catalogue: Ground Cover
It is not well controlled by fungicides and has a broad host range including rice, canola, mustard, narrow-leafed lupins, barrel medic, potatoes, maize, strawberries, sugar beet, wheat, oats, barley and ryegrass... While no single strain attacks the whole range of crop plants, the AG8 strain causes bare patch and root rot in cereals, canola and legumes... For the moment, researchers at least have a better understanding of how Rhizoctonia has so far been able to outwit all attempts to protect crops from its ravages and have important leads to follow to probe for weaknesses in the pathogen and to strengthen plant defences...
