An undescribed symptom caused by Fusarium graminearum was detected in wheat fields showing masses of orange sporodochia on the node and neighbouring stem tissue. Normally the head above infected nodes dies and only chaff is harvested. This is the first formal description of this type of stem infections caused by F. graminearum. The economic importance of these disease symptoms need further evaluation.
