Estimating Yield Losses Due to Barley Yellow Dwarf on Winter Wheat in Kansas Using Disease Phenotypic Data

G. M. Gaunce and W. W. Bockus

January 2015

Research

Despite the development of cultivars with improved resistance to barley yellow dwarf (BYD), little is known about the impact that this resistance has on yield loss from the disease. The intent of this research was to estimate yield loss in winter wheat cultivars in Kansas due to BYD and quantify the reduction in losses associated with resistant cultivars.
