The article provides information on new guidelines for managing take-all disease released by the Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA) in Great Britain in 2006. The guide features research conducted by HGCA concerning the take-all disease, which affects almost half of the wheat crops and costs farming up to £ 60 million a year in the country. Managing take-all should begin much sooner than simply in the year the wheat crop is being grown, according to HGCA research director Graham Jellis.
