McCarthy, G.J.P. and Teakle, D.S. (1959) A crown rot of strawberry caused by Phytophthora parasitica. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 16 (1). pp. 73-77.



Phytophthora parasitica was isolated from an unusual type of crown rot. Plants successfully inoculated showed a brown rot of the crown and a red-brown cortical rot of roots near the crown. Inoculation of green fruit produced a firm brown rot not seen in the field. The low incidence of the disease suggests that rotation will provide adequate control.
