Effects of small air ions on net blotch disease of barley

Abstract

Small positive air ions significantly reduced the number of lesions and percentage of leaf area covered by lesions of net blotch disease of barley. Appearance of disease symptoms was delayed by three days when plants were exposed to an atmosphere of positive ions. No such effect was observed for negative air ions. Height and dry weight were significantly stimulated by unipolar ions.
