Prediction of barley rust?s detrimental impact


D.T. Sentosh*

Research focused on understanding the dynamics of distribution and progression of spring barley rust. The disease exhibited varying levels of dissemination, ranging from 21.75% to 30.0% throughout the study period, coupled with intensities fluctuating between 13.25% and 19.0%. The impact of the disease on the structural aspects of the spring barley yield was observed, demonstrating a strong correlation (r=0.973, r=0.980, and r=0.973). Additionally, predictive models for estimating crop yield losses due to rust were formulated, enabling the anticipation of potential spring barley harvest reductions resulting from the disease.
