Rust on leaves of garlic is a manifestation of the disease

When rust is affected, the leaves are the first to suffer. On the surface of the stems slightly convex, pale yellowish spots are formed. After a while, specks (pustules) darken, acquire a brown tint, their surface envelope collapses. Inland spores in windy weather can spread throughout the site, seizing neighboring areas. Thus, rust of garlic affects other plants.

This disease can cause significant damage to the crop: garlic loses the foliage (it dries), rhizome (bulb) does not receive a sufficient amount of nutrients, does not develop, there is no longer any talk of taste it is necessary. The causes of rust in garlic are found in fungus spores, which are incredibly tenacious and frost-resistant. If, for example, some remnants of the past harvest were left, and with the arrival of spring, the beds were not properly treated, new plantings could become infected with rust spores. Heat and moisture only contribute to the activation of the disease, and spores, as already mentioned above, are easily transmitted by air. The disease affects not only onions and garlic, but also most other garden crops.
