It was found that F. culmorum and F. graminearum isolated from wheat were also virulent to spring oats. The degree of infection differed in the two years examined. Of the eight spring oat varieties examined 'Muresan' was less infected than the others. As the result of pathogen attack a substantial decrease was observed in thousand grain mass and in germination, thus causing a considerable reduction in the value of the seed.
