A desk study to identify future research priorities on the development and control of Rhizoctonia solani - HH3210SFV

Description
Rhizoctonia solani Kühn is a ubiquitous soil-borne pathogen capable of causing disease in a diverse array of crops. Over 10, 000 scientific papers have been written on the biology and control of R. solani. This project will review the literature published to date on diseases caused by R. solani in Brassica spp., lettuce and potato crops. The information will be summerised in a report and future research priorities identified.
Objective
(1) Conduct a literature search to investigate previous work on the diagnosis, forecasting and control strategies for R. solani diseases in Brassica spp., lettuce and potato crops.
(2) Produce a report summarising the findings and prioritise possible future areas of research.
