trigger: Wheat Wheat During maturity stage dusty black heads are characteristic. The glumes and grains in a smutted head are transformed into brown to black spores . The spores of the fungus are dispersed by the wind during flowering as well as by harvest residues rain and insects. The process of the rapid germination of the spores requires moisture and temperatures between 16–22°C. The infection takes place shortly before or during the flowering period. The development of the fungus keeps pace with the growth of the plant. By heading time all grains are turned into spores and nearby and less developed plants can be infected by these spores. To be sure that your seeds are smut-free you should treat your seeds before planting them. For seed treatment soak the seeds in 20-30°C hot water for 4-6 hours. Afterwards they have to be dipped into 49°C hot water for 2 minutes. In the next step the seed should be laid on a plastic sheet and should to be exposed to sunlight for another 4 hours. The seeds should be complete air dry before sowing. This treatment reduces the infection risk but also the germination rate of the seeds. The seeds can be treated with systemic fungicides such as Carboxin Carbathiin Benomyl Triadimenol Triadimefon Pyracarbolid Terbutrazole Carbendazim Difenoconazole Etaconazole Ethyltrianol Flutriafol Furmecyclox Myclobutanil or Nuarimol.

In most cases this begins on the upper side of the infected leaves. The fungus extracts nutrients from the plant and results in a sudden stunting of the plant's growth. As the disease progresses infected parts will shrivel up and a severe infection can lead to the death of the whole plant.As opposed to Downy Mildew Powdery Mildew can be wiped off to some extent. However this does not lead to an eradication of the disease. There are many different species of Powdery Mildew which occur on different hosts. In general Powdery Mildew spores are spread via wind. Even though it is a fungus Powdery Mildew can also germinate in dry conditions. It can live at temperatures between 10-12°C but optimal conditions are found at 30°C. In contrast to Downy Mildew small amounts of rainfall and regular morning dew accelerate the spreading of Powdery Mildew. The infection with this fungi is a sign for a unhealthy plant. Milk-water solutions function as natural fungicides (you can find tips in the main menu - information on plant diseases - preventive plant protection). You should apply this solution to the leaves every other day. This household remedy works especially well with cucurbits (cucumber zucchini pumpkin) and berries.The types of Powdery Mildew differ according to the host and this solution may not be effective for all types. If no improvement is observed try garlic tea (you can find tips in the main menu - information on plant diseases - preventive plant protection). Commercial biological treatments are also available. In case of infection you can use fungicides based on Wettable Sulphur Carbendazim Tridemorph Difenoconazole + Azoxystrobin Tebuconazol Difenoconazole or Trifloxystrobin.

Some varieties have two pairs of wings others do not have wings at all.In case of infestation with Thrips light silvery and air-filled cells form on the upperside of the leaves. On the underside of the leaves you can see the Thrips and their larvae sitting together in groups alongside their black dung spots.Leaves of affected plants yellow wither deform or shrivel. A halt in growth of the whole plant may occur.On peas 5 mm large grey spots appear. On leeks and onions you can find silvery elongated spots. On eggplant cucumber tomato and pepper fruits deform and stop ripening. Thrips transmit a broad range of viral diseases. They hibernate in plant residues or in the soil. Dry and warm weather conditions foster the growth of the population. Remove leaves with Thrips colonies. Thrips do not like humidity infested plants should be kept well-moisturized. You can apply garlic tea (you can find tips in the main menu - information on plant diseases - preventive plant protection). Neem oil can decimate the Thrips population be careful to spray especially the undersides of the leaves and only on those varieties of Thrips that attack the leaves and not the flower. In case of Flower Thrips infestation use predatory mites or green lacewing larvae. Neonicotinoids can be very effective to control Thrips. Dinotefuran produces especially good results. Imidacloprid is not recommended for us against Thrips. You should avoid insecticides containing Acephate Malathion Carbaryl Bifenthrin Cyfluthrin Fluvalinate and Permethrin.
