Red-legged earth mite

Red-legged earth mite

Plant Pathol 11(4): 157-159

Patches of poor growth have occurred in recent winters in some 3-4 year-old cocksfoot leys being grown for grass drying in Wormegay, Norfolk. Although virus disease and other factors were partly responsible, very large numbers of Penthaleus major, known variously as "red-legged mite", "blue oat mite" or "winter grain mite", were found in the poor areas and not in the better parts of the fields. The mites were closely associated with the poor growth.
