The article presents information on septoria, the foliar disease of winter wheat. Septoria affects crop yield by reducing the green leaf area and the capacity of the crop to produce sugars through photosynthesis. The disease is more prevalent in the western regions of Great Britain due to its association with wet weather. The use of fungicides and resistant wheat varieties are some of the ways to control septoria.
