Economic importance Powdery mildew was the second most common disease of winter wheat and the most widespread and severe disease of spring and winter barley in national surveys carried out over several years in England and Wales. Yield losses in the field in susceptible crops have been estimated at up to 25% in the United States and 20% in the United Kingdom. Control Cultural control of powdery mildew involves the eradication of volunteer cereals, which can 29 30 LEAF AND STEM DISEASES Mosaics/Yellows Barley stripe mosaic virus (BSMV) Disease: Barley Stripe Mosaic Barley stripe mosaic is also known as barley false stripe, barley mosaic, and oat stripe mosaic.

Laevis do not usually survive for longer than 1 year in soil. The smut diseases cause losses in both yield and quality. Loss in grain yield is approximately equivalent to the percentage of ear-bearing stems with smut. Even a low incidence of smut can result in grain being graded ‘smutty’, which brings a lower price due to the unfavourable smell and flavour associated with teliospores in the final product. In addition, some countries have quarantines prohibiting import of grain containing teliospores of T.

Hyphae penetrate the ovary or stigma directly and grow toward and colonize the embryo and scutellum of the developing seed. Environmental conditions during anthesis have a strong influence on disease incidence in the subsequent crop. Loose smut is favoured by frequent rain showers, high humidity, and temperatures in the range 16–22°C. However, heavy rains during anthesis can reduce disease incidence. Free-water is necessary for germination of teliospores and penetration, and cool temperatures prolong the flowering period.
