cereal loss

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
One or more species of RLN (Root Lesion Nematode, Pratylenchus spp.) occur in at least 60% of WA cropping paddocks... The principal outputs of this project will be knowledge of wheat varieties which are more resistant to RLN (i.e. limit the multiplication of RLN under a crop) & more tolerant to RLN (i.e. yield loss incurred in a variety due to RLN is minimised)... RLN research in WA will continue to focus on management, principally through rotational recommendations for the deployment of cereal cultivars (& other host crops) with a level of resistance to each RLN that will benefit subsequent crop yields...

One or more species of RLN (Root Lesion Nematode, Pratylenchus spp.) occur in at least 60% of WA cropping paddocks... P. thornei occurs rarely; P. neglectus is the most frequent RLN identified in WA, occurring in at least 40% of paddocks; P. teres is found in 10% of paddocks... It is imperative that the species of RLN is correctly identified to enable growers to deploy appropriate crop varieties and species to minimise current and future losses...
