Take-all in winter wheat - management guidelines (HGCA Autumn 2006)

Seed rate

Take-all can develop more quickly and become more severe at higher seed rates, which allow more primary and secondary infection because of greater root density. Reducing seed rates can increase yield where take-all is severe but this may not be practical with later-sown at-risk crops.
