2014 Progress in Plant Protection  
The studies were conducted at the Research and Education Center Gorzyń, the branch Brody that belongs to the Poznań University of Life Sciences in the years 2011-2013. The aim of the study was to determine the severity of infection by pathogenic fungi on spring wheat depending on spring wheat cultivation technology: cover crop cultivation (without cover crop, sowing after skimming and direct drilling) and different tillage system (conventional, reduced tillage and direct drilling). The results

Higher infection of Fusarium spp. and Gaeumannomyces graminis was observed on the treatments without white mustard biomass each year of the study. Percentage of damage plants and the index of infection caused by pathogens of stem base diseases depended on the experimental factors of the studies. Higher infection was observed on the treatments without cover crop cultivation where spring wheat was cultivated in no-tillage technology.
