Abstract The 1995-96 growing season was marked by a reappearance of barley yellow dwarf luteovirus in Belgium, after an almost complete absence for 4 years. Both winter barley and winter wheat were affected, particularly in the west of the country. Early infestation of crops by viruliferous Aphidoidea was made possible by early seedling emergence (in Sep.) which was followed by an exceptionally warm autumn. Insecticide treatments were frequently ineffective, and severe crop losses resulted. This report gives a description of disease progress throughout the growing season, and identifies lessons to be learned on early symptom recognition and on optimizing insecticide treatment.
