Meeting the challenge of disease management in perennial grain cropping systems
Publication: Renewable Agriculture and Food Systems, Volume 20(1), March 2005, pp. 15-24.
Perennial grain production will likely present unique challenges for managing diseases that affect the productivity and longevity of crops being considered. Typical cultural practices effective at reducing soil- and residue-borne pathogens, such as annual crop rotations, delayed fall planting, and tillage, are not feasible in perennial systems.
