Sub clover seed production is estimated to be a $10-15 million dollar a year industry. Seed producers from the mid 2000’s have reported that an unknown red-leaf disease has been causing yield losses of up to 60% in their seed production crops.
This RIRDC report presents the results of a three year research project that investigated the causal agents of red-leaf disease in sub clover seed crops, developed diagnostic tools and developed a fact sheet on the control of red-leaf disease.
This report will be of interest to sub clover seed producers, pasture agronomists, sub clover pasture growers.
