Abstract: There have been reports of symphlans in early established crops. Symphla are a natural part of healthy soil biota, & can be found under healthy crops however at very high numbers may cause root damage. Seedlings particularly at risk are those with low vigour due to other stresses such as poor planting conditions. Effected plants may appear stunted & wilt due to early water stress.
