Title: Take-All of Irrigated Spring Wheat in North Dakota
Author: Stack, R. W.
Description: The article concerns itself with 'take all' root rot caused by the soil fungus Gaeumannomyces graminis, a problem in the Great Northern Plains, but not a widespread one at this writing. It was concluded by the author that a serious world wheat shortage could stimulate widespread interest in irrigated spring wheat to maximize yields. This fungus has the potential to wipe out most of the increased yields sought by irigation. Some studies suggest that the usage of ammonium nitrate sources fertilizers suppresses some of the ill effects of the fungus.
