Abstract: Describes research which examined three aspects of the blackleg disease of canola (Brassica napus) which is caused by the fungus Leptosphaeria maculans and which has the potential to reduce crop yield by 80%. The study examined mechanisms of resistance in Australian canola cultivars, the epidemiology of the disease, and a previously developed DNA-based method of detection of L. maculans was validated for quantifying DNA in stubble and soil samples.
