These fungi are most troublesome when the relative humidity exceeds 90%. It can result in reduced grain quality and value and is a significant problem in most Australian wheat growing areas. Black point (Fig. xref 0000000676 00000 n This can be a cause for discounting of the grain at the elevator or rejection of the grain by millers. Also known as sooty head molds, black head molds appear dirty and come in a variety of colors (black, white, pink, or green) depending on the causal fungi. Black point (BP) of wheat is a dark discolouration of the germ end of otherwise healthy grain. Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for black-point resistance have been mapped in two doubled haploid-derived wheat populations, each thought to contain unrelated sources of resistance. Analysis of data for a black point susceptible variety revealed a strong correlation between black point and rainfall 20–30 days after anthesis. on black point disease on durum wheat in Ethiopia. Results (of microscopic and genetic investigations) were consistent with control of pigment synthesis being resident in the tissues comprising the grain coat. The most serious problem is a discolouration of products. The survey includes analysis of toxin levels in symptomatic wheat from several US wheat growing areas.

Marker-assisted selection (MAS) has the potential to accelerate genetic improvement of black point resistance in wheat breeding. Definition of black point : a worldwide disease of wheat and other cereal grains that is caused by various bacteria and fungi especially of the genera Alternaria and Helminthosporium and that blackens the embryo ends of the grains, sometimes impairs germination, and lowers the market value of the grain Severely infected kernels can result in significant down grading of seed quality. 240Black point of wheat is prevalent in most of the wheat growing regions of the world. They infect kernels during seed maturation, especially green kernels, and are favored by high relative humidity or rainfall. Black point (blackpoint, kernel smudge or just smudge) is often considered a fungal disease that affects wheat, barley and rye. Get this from a library!

Black Point (BP) is a dark discolouration of the embryo end of wheat and barley grains. Black Point. Wheat is one of the oldest and most important of the cereal crops. Presence of black point can increase the risk of sprouting. Black point is a grain defect in wheat controlled by genetic and environmental factors. Black point, also known as kernel smudge ( Figure 1 ), is a disease which causes discoloration of the embryo (germ) end and surrounding areas of the wheat kernel. It appears as a black/brown pigmentation in the grain coat overlying the germ or embryo and in the grain crease. If caused by Alternaria spp., the dark color affects only the … Control of black point in wheat appears to reside in the tissues of the grain coat. 0000005075 00000 n Estimated losses through downgrading have been as high as $50 million annually. Fungicide applications from stem elongation to flag emergence could increase black point infection and it was, in many cases, associated with an increase in kernel mass. wheat kernels grown on the Canadian Prairies. -- "Symptoms, disease impact, and management of black point disease of wheat and fungicides available for its treatment"--Page [1].
