Oat Mosaic Virus (OMV) is a soil borne virus which can infect oat crops and seriously reduce yield. It produces mottling of leaves and plants can appear shorter and leaves are narrower. As the virus is soil-borne then it can be patchy. Incidence varies betwen years.
There appears to be a range of susceptibility in varieties.
Gerald - susceptible
Dalguise - moderately susceptible
Mascani - resistant
New varieties are under test but low infections of OMV on trial sites prevent us from accuarately assessing their susceptibility or resistance.
