Fusarium Test

Fusarium (Microdochium nivale) is a common disease found in cereal grains.

Fusarium (Microdochium nivale) is a common disease found in cereal grains and can have a big impact on the emergence of crops. It is a seed-borne disease which affects winter-sown cereals. Wheat is affected most, followed by oats then barley. If the seed is heavily contaminated with the fungus, and seed is sown in cold and wet conditions, the impact on germination can be severe. Analysis of fusarium levels in seed prior to drilling is very important if you are not intending to dress it with SPD.

All testing is carried out in our TASCC accredited laboratory, and we are also a Licensed Seed Testing Station for certified seed. Click here to view the full range of testing and analysis options we have available.
