Abstract/Contents:Discusses the effect of fungal diseases on seed yield in grasses grown for seed, emphasizing ergot, blind seed, and seedborne endophytes as common fungi. Details the annual life cycle and behavior of these fungi and the potential effectiveness of fungicide control and application timing. Briefly mentions that the economics of grass seed production, including the price of fungicides and the value of the crop itself, may pose an added difficulty in managing fungal diseases. Presents several field trials reporting seed yield based on number of fungicide applications.
