The Second European Ramularia Workshop, Edinburgh 2009 - a new disease and challenge in Barley Production
To be held at
University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland
7-8 April 2009
Basis points have been applied for

This Workshop follows a very successful First Workshop held in 2006.

Ramularia collo-cygni is a relatively new disease to cause economic losses in barley throughout Europe. This workshop provides researchers, plant breeders and crop consultants with an opportunity to contribute and to learn more about recent discoveries about the pathogen, varietal resistance, forecasting methods and practical disease control.

The sessions over this 1½ day workshop include:

• Epidemiology of Ramularia collo-cygni

• Pathogenicity including the role of phytotoxins

• Variety resistance

• Disease management and forecasting

The workshop will also be a social occasion for researchers, breeders and consultants throughout Europe to engage in discussion at informal events - at a BBQ on the evening before the workshop and at the conference dinner to be held on 7 April. Edinburgh in spring is also a beautiful city where you could take a holiday break either before or after the event.
