Blackspot manager – release of blackspot spores from pea stubbles locations

To report on blackspot manager – release of blackspot spores from pea stubbles.

Key messages
  • Early sowing plus large numbers of airborne spores caused severe blackspot infection in pea crops in 2009.
  • Winter and spring rain increased severity of blackspot in the pea crops.
  • Airborne blackspot spore numbers are expected to be high in 2010 since pea stubbles have severe disease loads.
