Cereal growers with crops still to sow, including spring barley, are being urged to test home-saved seed, think hard before omitting treatment and be prepared to raise sowing rates. Microdochium nivale seedling blight--the disease most farmers and agronomists still refer to as fusarium--was exceptionally heavy this autumn, noted Scottish Agricultural Science Agency seed pathologist Valerie Cockerell. Fusarium seedling blight was not normally seen as a problem in spring barley.
