Abstract

This disease of peas which is generally termed "black spot" or "stem rot" by growers is widespread in Western Australia. During the wet winter months the disease is often so severe that it is difficult to grow garden pea varieties satisfactorily; but in summer when hot, dry conditions usually prevail the disease is of little consequence.
