Evaluation of leaf diseases in the state and regional wheat assays of Rio Grande do Sul.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the incidence and severity of the main wheat (Triticum aestivum) leaf diseases (leaf spots, powdery mildew [Erysiphe graminis f.sp. tritici] and leaf rust [Puccinia hordei]) on genotypes of wheat in the 'regional assay', and cultivars in the 'state assay', accomplished at FEPAGRO Sementes, in Júlio de Castilhos, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The results compared the reaction of the genotypes to each separate disease.
