What Is a Wheat Disease?

Introduction

Wheat disease is quite common, because of the numerous insecticides being used and the use of sprays. The increase in industrialization and waste materials is also a cause of the growing wheat and crops diseases. Wheat disease is more of a risk in winters.

The issues of wheat disease became more prominent in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries when many factories and industries were established. As the industries were build up far from the city and near the country sides, crops were greatly affected and then died. At first, there were no major remedies for the diseases but now, due to the advancement in science and technology, many methods have been introduced to prevent the diseases of wheat and crops.

There are various wheat diseases based on the type of pathogens or parasites which are the cause of these diseases. Some diseases affect the roots while other affects the head or grains region. Sclerosis is also one of the symptoms of a wheat disease. Sclerosis causes the yellowing of the grains and head region and then turns the whole root and shoots area into a powdery mass. Many species of fungi and bacteria are also responsible for these diseases and some of them are so swear that they destroy the whole area of the field. Sometimes, the whole field has to be evacuated so that the field can be ploughed from the beginning.

So, if you detect the disease at an early stage, then the farmers and land owners should consider themselves lucky. If it is not detected at the beginning, than no pesticide or spray can save the crops. Sometimes, the diseases go undetected and the wheat is harvested and then sold to the buyers. The hitch arises when there is a problem in the products. Or when the consumers buy the products and eat them. Many allergic reactions can also cause the death of the person. Many such cases have been reported in the past so now the farmers and the factories who buy the wheat, take extra precautions. Now if someone owns a land and the wheat get affected, then he can also contact the agencies, which detect the disease online as well. There are many advantages of these online agencies. They are quite feasible and they also offer discount deals. They collect the money after they have detected the disease and eliminated it i.e. they take money after doing all the work.
