A weather-based model for predicting early season inoculum build-up and spike infection by the wheat blast pathogen

Abstract

Wheat blast, caused by the fungus Magnaporthe oryzae Triticum pathotype (MoT), is a serious disease capable of causing severe losses, especially during warm and humid weather conditions. Although the pathogen attacks all aboveground parts, infection of the wheat spikes is of major concern. In this work we developed and evaluated a prediction model based on… (More)
