To conduct a prairie-wide assessment of the current status of the pathogens that cause netted and spotted net blotch of barley to determine: 1) their variability in pathogenicity, virulence, and molecular characteristics; 2) ability to overcome currently-used sources of resistance; and 3) any variation in the sensitivity of representative pathogen forms and isolates to the fungicides registered to manage net blotch
