Disease dynamics in a changing farm environment locations
Aims

To understand growth patterns of yellow leaf spot (YLS) (Pyrenophora tritici-repentis) on wheat and net form net blotch (NFNB) (Pyrenophora teres f teres) on barley in relation to a changing farming environment.

Key messages
  • A combination of old and new technology is being used to detect and analyse airborne fungal spore patterns affecting cereal and pulse grain crops.
  • Intense spore showers were detected for blackspot of field pea and NFNB of barley, but negligible for YLS of wheat, at the experimental site at Hart during the 2013 season.
  • Spore dispersal patterns of blackspot of field pea fitted with Blackspot Manager predictions.
