SUMMARY A method for estimating losses due to foliar diseases with more precision, using little space and time and without the need for artificially producing different levels of disease, is described. Randomly selected tillers were labelled with their mildew level on leaf 2 at growth stage 10.5 and the ripe ears harvested to obtain values for seed number, seed weight and yield for each ear. Regressions of all three parameters on mildew level were negative and highly significant. Converted… 
Evaluation of the single tillers method for yield loss assessment in wheat under Israeli conditions
It was concluded that this relationship between disease and yield has to be established empirically wherever yield losses are to be estimated, and that under Israeli conditions it may be done by using the single tillers method.
Yield-loss Relationships in Cereals
Six studies using precision methods to obtain quantitative yield-loss relationships are reported, with results ranging from 100 per cent for Pyrenophora graminea on barley, to 51 per cent in a simulated grazing trial on wheat.
Relationship between Yield Loss and Severity of Yellow Rust Recorded on a Large Number of Single Stems of Winter Wheat
Grain weight per ear and mean weight of single grains were negatively correlated with disease severity, but there was no significant relationship with the number of grains per ear.
Yield losses in wheat from yellow spot: a disease-loss relationship derived from single tillers.
Under environmental conditions which particularly favour disease development, the losses derived from this relationship are probably underestimated.
Yield losses in wheat from yellow spot: comparison of estimates derived from single tillers and plots.
Losses in wheat yield associated with yellow spot have been examined in a field experiment where developn~ent of crop and disease were promoted with sprinkler irrigation, with better agreement between estimates derived from the regressions and loss in grain yield on main stems.
Yield reduction of oat cultivars in relation to disease development caused by barley yellow dwarf virus.
Single tilleranalysis indicated close correlation between symptom severity and reduction in main yield components of oat cultivar Veli and breeding lines Hankkija 78152 and 78033 and implications for disease control are discussed.
Relationship between eyespot severity and yield loss in winter wheat
SUMMARY Between 500 and 1000 winter wheat plants were taken at random immediately before harvest from crops with naturally or artificially created attacks of eyespot (Pseudocercosporella
Effects of Induced Resistance on Disease Severity/Yield Relations in Mildewed Barley
Field experiments showed that the treatment of winter barley with microbial metabolites produced by a Bacillus subtilis strain led to increased yields in spite of a remaining mildew infection.
Disease-yield relationship in barley. I. Yield, dry matter accumulation and yield-loss models.
The inclusion of estimated yield target improved the general applicability of models, and provided a method of using models in crops sown at different times and in different seasons, without measuring yield target directly.


The relationship between leaf blotch caused by Rhynchosporium secalis and losses in grain yield of spring barley
Investigation of the loss in grain yield associated with specific levels of leaf blotch found a consistent relationship between the disease level, at growth stage 11·1 (Feekes scale), and loss in yield.
An Estimate of the Loss of Yield caused by Cephalosporium gramineum in Wheat
An investigation on cv. Cappelle Desprez wheat indicated that infected plants yield about 30 per cent that of healthy plants, but much of this yield consists of very small, shrivelled seeds, so that
