Crown rot resistance and yield loss locations
Aims

To evaluate resistance to crown rot and yield losses from crown rot in commercial cultivars of bread wheat, durum wheat and barley.

Key messages
  • Some new durum lines show promise of improved resistance to crown rot.
  • Yield loss in Hindmarsh in this trial is a reminder that barley can also exhibit yield loss from crown rot.
  • Percentage yield loss from crown rot may only be small in a good season, but this can equate to significant production loss.
  • Knowing the risk of yield loss from crown rot in paddocks prior to sowing is an important management strategy.
