Title: Management of Septoria Tritici Blotch using cultivar mixtures and optimized fungicide strategies

Description: Winter wheat (Triticum aestivum) is one of the most economically valuable crops in Europe, and accounts for 22% of the agricultural area in Denmark. One of the greatest threats to yield in winter wheat is the disease Septoria tritici blotch (STB) caused by Zymoseptoria tritici. There are great concerns about loss of efficacy in the fungicides currently used to control STB and improved strategies for disease and resistance management are sought. The objective of the thesis is to assess disease severity and pathogen fungicide resistance development in winter wheat mixtures with cultivars of different susceptibility to STB.
