Inoculation of wheat seedlings by the crown rot pathogen Fusarium pseudograminearum is commonly used to screen for resistance based on leaf sheath discolouration. While leaf sheath discolouration is effective for describing disease reactions, the degree to which the pathogen colonises the full range of seedling host tissues is an important aspect of the(More)
Disease severity of crown rot (Fusarium pseudograminearum) in winter cereal culms is typically assessed at harvest maturity by recording incidence of infection, whitehead production and discolouration of basal internodes. This study has investigated the relationship between the proportion of discolouration of individual internodes and the extent of host(More)
