  1. wheat rust

    Wheat rust is a fungal disease that affects wheat crops. There are three types of wheat rust: stem rust, leaf rust, and stripe rust, each caused by different species of the fungus Puccinia. The disease can damage and reduce the crop yield significantly, making it a major agricultural issue in various regions worldwide. It forms reddish or yellowish spore patches on the wheat plant, resembling rust on metal, hence, the name. It spreads through airborne or rain-splashed spores and can infect a field rapidly under favorable conditions.
