Crown rot - varietal screening locations

To evaluate a range of durum breeding lines for resistance and tolerance to crown rot.

Key messages
  • Durum breeders’ lines screened in 2008 and 2009 do not show consistently improved resistance or tolerance to crown rot.
  • Hyperno performed somewhat better than Kalka or Tamaroi.
  • Data from at least two seasons is needed to make sound decisions about the response of entries to crown rot.
