poor crop growth

Catalogue: GRDC Factsheets
Yield losses in crops affected by bare patches can be over 50% and crops with uneven growth (Figure 1) may lose up to 20%... Figure 1: Above-ground symptoms of crop unevenness (main picture) are seen when Rhizoctonia damages crown roots, even when seminal roots (inset) escape the infection... Inoculum levels increase in cereal crops at all depths...

Researchers are beginning to unravel the behaviour of a complex and damaging crop root disease known as Rhizoctonia, and finding new ways to manage crops to reduce its impact... Grains Research and Development Corporation-funded research, carried out by CSIRO and other research partners, is outlined in a new GRDC fact sheet for the southern and western cropping regions - Management to Minimise Rhizoctonia in Cereals... The fungus can grow and survive in the soil in the absence of a live plant host, the fungus has a wide host range, there are no resistant cereals, and it is strongly influenced by soil and environmental conditions and the seasonal impacts are difficult to forecast," Dr Gupta said...
