    Sarrah Ben M’Barek is a happy PhD student at Plant Research International. She has been awarded a fellowship that allows her to spend two years working uninterruptedly on her PhD at the Wageningen institute. Working on Mycosphaerella is interesting as well as important, tells Sarrah. ‘It’s an important fungus that affects wheat. Seventy percent of all cereal fungicides are ones that work against Mycosphaerella. In Tunisia, where I’m from, up to half the harvest is lost because of the disease. And we are also seeing M. graminicola isolates developing resistance to fungicides.’
