Infection of grape flowers and berries by Botrytis cinerea as a function of time and temperature
A statistical model was developed to describe flower and berry infection as a function of wetness time and incubation temperature and found that the wetness requirement increased with increasing departure from the optimum temperature. Expand
Epidemiological factors influencing the success of roguing for the control of bunchy top disease of bananas in New South Wales.
- R. N. Allen
The efficiency with which banana growers eradicated diseased plants following their detection was found to be a characteristic of the grower concerned but was, in general, poorest in late summer. Expand
Aphanomyces root rot of bean at Valla, New South Wales
Fenaminosulf was applied immediately before planting as a spray to an open furrow and failed to control the bean root rot in the field, but the experimental cultivar H & R no. 1, known to be resistant to A. phaseoli in the United States, was also resistant to the root rot at Valla. Expand
Spread of bunchy top disease in established banana plantations.
- R. N. Allen
The spread of bunchy top disease by the banana aphid was studied in two established banana plantations, in the presence and absence of roguing operations for disease control, by successfully predicting the number of new infections that were encountered within 10 m of sources of inoculum in five other banana plantations.

Vegetative compatibility and distribution of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense in Australia
Isolates of the race 4 VCG 0129 from Lady finger plantations were pathogenic to Cavendish cultivars in glasshouse tests, and was found attacking Bluggoe in North Queensland. Expand
Edible Insects and Their Uses in North America; Past, Present and Future
Insects have been an important part of food culture for many different places and peoples across North America’s history. This chapter retraces the indigenous uses of insects as a food across the… Expand
Purified avocado sunblotch viroid causes disease in avocado seedlings
ASBV was confirmed in seedlings inoculated by both methods, by PAGE and cDNA probe, which is the 1st known report confirming that ASBV is the causal agent of avocado sunblotch disease. Expand
Fungicidal control in pineapple and avocado of diseases caused by Phytophthora cinnamomi
Root and heart rot diseases of pineapples and root rot of avocado caused by P. cinnamomi were controlled with fungicides and trees were permitted to recover over a 12-month period. Expand
Estimation of Leaf Emergence Rates of Bananas
The model predicted LER without bias for 16 of the cultivars, but slightly over-predicted LER in winter for the only representative of the Gros Michel subgroup (Highgate). Expand
Evaluation of biochemical methods for the diagnosis of the avocado sunblotch viroid in Israel
Although hybridization to a cDNA probe was the most sensitive method, not all known infected plants were detected and the problem of diagnosing ASBV in the Israeli propagation program is discussed. Expand
