Root nematode update

Loughman, R., Kelly, S., Holloway, G., Venn, N. and Diepeveen, D.ORCID: 0000-0002-1535-8019 (2000) Root nematode update. In: Crop Updates 2000: Cereals Update, 16 - 17 February 2000, Rendezvous Observation City Hotel, Scarborough, Perth.


Key Points
Yield losses in wheat from root lesion nematode (RLN) were assessed at up to 5 per cent in 1999.

Soil populations vary in different rotations. Differences in susceptibility among different crops can be used to manage soil populations to minimise impact from RLN.

Though rare in Western Australia, cereal cyst nematode can have a major effect on yield if populations build up through consecutive cereal cropping. Doolup barley is resistant

Hosting ability and its effect on population dynamics of root nematodes is being studied to enable improved management of cereal nematodes.
