|Take-all in winter wheat - management guidelines|
Take-all is a serious soil-borne disease of cereals. It is estimated that half of UK wheat crops are affected and that they suffer average yield losses of 5-20%. More than half of the crop can be lost when disease is severe. The cost to farmers is estimated to be up to £60 million a year.
The disease cannot be completely controlled but its severity can be managed. These guidelines summarise current knowledge, including information from recent research on fungicides and rotations.
