SCIENTISTS at the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC) have identified a new cereal disease affecting two of Scotlands most popular varieties – Chariot and Landlord.
The SAC said ramularia was the culprit. It has been found to be prevalent in several parts of Scotland, including the north-east.
The scientists are evaluating the optimum means of spraying for the disease.
