The article reports that an early warning scheme for barley disease ramularia, will be launched for barley growers across Great Britain after the four years of successful running of the scheme in Scotland. The scheme has been devised by Scottish researchers as use of fungicides was not effective after the appearance of rectangular blotches on leaves. Neil Havis, a researcher at the Scotland's Rural College, states that the disease always occurs post-flowering season.
