Abstract

Barley is an important crop, both globally and locally. It is important to both animal production and the brewing and distilling industry. Diseases can devastate crops and reduce yield and quality. A robust, sustainable progamme to control disease utilises a number of techniques. Here we report on the potential to alter sowing date to protect crops from disease, and also the use of biological control agents and resistance elicitors to replace conventional fungicides.
