Title:Foot-Rot Disease of Wheat, Historical and Bibliographic
Author(s):Stevens, F.L.
foot-rot disease
wheat-stem killer
Abstract:In April, 1919, a serious wheat disease was noted in Madison and other counties in Illinois; also in several counties in Indiana. Its most constant character is a darkening, and in severe cases a rotting of the basal portion of the stem. By various means - telegram, mimeographed letters and circulars, and public notice - the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and its agents, have announced the disease as almost certainly "take-all". Take-all and diseases of similar character - known also as white heads, black-foot, black-stem, stalk disease, foot disease, root disease, foot-rot, wheat-stem killer, straw blight, pietin, pied noir des cereales, mal del piede, mal do pe do trigo, briseur de chaumes, brusone, fogheta, pietin du ble, maladie du pied, Fusskranheit - occur in Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Australia, Sweden, Finland, United States, Mexico, England, New South Wales, Holland, Russia, Brazil, and Japan and have been attributed to several different fungi, but most prominently to Ophiobolus.
