These diseases are trash-borne, owing to which they tend to migrate up from the bottom to the top. Moreover, intensive use of fungicides for controlling major diseases in wheat such as septoria leaf blotch, powdery mildew and eyespot has over the years been found to develop resistance in fungicide in relation to benzimidazols, DMIs and strobilurins.
