Epidemiology and management of Leptosphaeria maculans (phoma stem canker) on oilseed rape in Australia, Canada and Europe
Phoma stem canker (blackleg), caused by Leptosphaeria maculans, is an important disease on oilseed rape (canola, rapeseed, Brassica napus, Brassica juncea, Brassica rapa) causing seedling death,Expand

Role of Ascospores in Further Spread of QoI-Resistant Cytochrome b Alleles (G143A) in Field Populations of Mycosphaerella graminicola.
ABSTRACT Strobilurin fungicides or quinone outside inhibitors (QoIs) have been used successfully to control Septoria leaf blotch in the United Kingdom since 1997. However, QoI-resistant isolates ofExpand

Early Disease Detection in Wheat Fields using Spectral Reflectance
The difference in spectral reflectance between healthy and diseased wheat plants infected with Puccinia striiformis (yellow rust) was investigated. In-field spectral images were taken with aExpand

Automatic detection of ‘yellow rust’ in wheat using reflectance measurements and neural networks
Abstract Excessive use of pesticides for plant disease treatment increases costs and raises the danger of toxic residue levels on agricultural products. As pesticides are among the highest componentsExpand

Plant disease detection based on data fusion of hyper-spectral and multi-spectral fluorescence imaging using Kohonen maps
The objective of this research was to develop a ground-based real-time remote sensing system for detecting diseases in arable crops under field conditions and in an early stage of disease development, before it can visibly be detected. Expand

The potential of optical canopy measurement for targeted control of field crop diseases.
There is increasing pressure to reduce the use of pesticides in modern crop production to decrease the environmental impact of current practice and to lower production costs. It is thereforeExpand

Improved Resistance Management for Durable Disease Control: A Case Study of Phoma Stem Canker of Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus)
Specific resistance loci in plants are generally very efficient in controlling development of pathogen populations. However, because of the strong selection pressure exerted, these resistances areExpand
