The article focuses on the cause of the possible spread of the barley spotting disease ramularia in Great Britain according to diagnostic tests conducted by plant pathologist Simon Oxley. Seeds from the stocks grown on a glasshouse proved the presence of ramularia on developing plants. Oxley emphasises the need to develop long term plans for varietal resistance. INSETS: CONFUSING SEASON;SEED-BORNE RHYNCHO DEVELOPS FASTER.

    Leaf stripe is a seed-borne disease of barley (Hordeum vulgare) caused by Pyrenophora graminea. Little is known about the genetics of resistance to this pathogen. In the present work, QTL analysis was applied on two recombinant inbred line (RIL) populations derived from two- and six-rowed barley...
