Cereal disease quiz

Disease identification can be tricky at times, even for the most experienced of agronomists and farmers.

With some diseases having similar symptoms, separating them can be a challenge. In barley Ramularia and net blotch can share the same chlorotic halo appearance; Septoria and Tan Spot are strikingly similar in wheat; as is the stem-based complex. And that stripe, lesion or spot may not be a fungal disease but abiotic spotting via a range of potential stress factors, or as a result of pest damage. 

We’ve put together a little quiz to test your knowledge on disease identification and management!
