The effect of crop height on the epidemics of Septoria tritici and Stagonospora nodorum was investigated using visual assessment and PCR-based assays. Based on the results of our study, the primary mechanism of disease escape in tall crops is through a reduction of spore arrival. Real-time PCR is an important tool to quantify spore arrival and can, in combination with visual assessment, identify factors involved in the onset and extent of disease development.
