Fungicides continue to be essential for the effective control of plant diseases. The azoles class of fungicides has been the leading agents for the control of fungal pathogens of plants since their introduction in the mid 1970s. This class of fungicides is also called sterol demethylation inhibitors (DMIs) because they inhibit the formation of cytochrome(More)
During the period 2003–2005, spring and winter cereal grain samples were analysed for the presence of the mycotoxins deoxynivalenol (DON), zearalenone (ZEN), T-2 toxin, ochratoxin A and aflatoxin (total) by the ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) method at the Lithuanian Institute of Agriculture. Mycotoxin DON produced by the fungi of the genus(More)
Research evidence suggests that in Lithuania eyespot incidence in winter wheat crops was from 33 to 60% annually. Climatic conditions are the most important factor influencing the infection of winter wheat by eyespot. The variation of the climatic conditions (rainfall and number of rainy days) in the autumn and spring, the incidence and disease severity(More)
Fungicides are widely used to control pea diseases. We investigated non-target effects of fungicide seed treatment, applied at recommended rates, on soil bacteria and fungi counts in the rhizosphere and bulk soil in lithuania from 2008 to 2010. Microbiological analyses were conducted on the soil samples of the rhizospheric and nonrhizospheric zones of pea(More)
