Trade-off between disease resistance and crop yield: a landscape-scale mathematical modelling perspective.

Abstract

The deployment of crop varieties that are partially resistant to plant pathogens is an important method of disease control. However, a trade-off may occur between the benefits of planting the resistant variety and a yield penalty, whereby the standard susceptible variety outyields the resistant one in the absence of disease. This presents a dilemma… (More)
