Justesen, A.F.; Pinnschmidt, H.O. and Hansen, H.J. (2004) Molecular diagnostic methods can prevent unnecessary rejection of organic seed lots. DARCOFenews.
In some years, large amounts of organic seed lots are discarded due to the presence of high levels of seed-borne diseases. In barley it is especially the presence of the fungal species Pyrenophora teres (barley net blotch) and P. graminea (barley leaf stripe), which causes rejection of seed lots. A real-time PCR method for detection and quantification of P. graminea has been developed.
