This fungal disease causes tan, elongated lesions on wheat leaves. Lesions may have a yellow margin, but the degree of yellowing varies among varieties. Rows of dark, reproductive structures produced by the fungus are key diagnostic features and can often be seen without magnification. This disease is also known as speckled leaf blotch.

Management: Genetic resistance, foliar fungicides, crop rotation.
