Leaf Rust - Barley

Leaf rust may not be the most commonly encountered barley disease, never the less it is widespread and can be seen every season.

LOOK OUT FOR:

Brown rust pustules scattered across the surface of the leaf

RISK FACTORS:

Warm conditions


Leaf rust is wind dispersed, placing all barley crops at risk.

Leaf rust favours warm conditions and therefore is more of a problem in early to mid-summer.

Severe infections can lead to significant yield losses.
