Effects of habitat characteristics and climatic factors on the occurrence of reed pathogens were investigated in a four-year survey. While diseases caused by Puccinia magnusiana, Polythrinciopsis phragmitis and Stago­no­spora sp. started to increase as early as in August, the other species caused severe infection in September (Deightoniella arundinacea, Puccinia phrag­mitis) or even later in the vegetation period (Deightoniella roumeguerei). For the distribution of some fungal pathogens (Puccinia phragmitis, Deighto­niella arundinacea, D. roumeguerei and Stagonospora sp.) weather conditions (especially precipitation) were profound, while the occurrence of others (Puccinia magnusiana and Polythrinciopsis phragmitis) depend­ed more on the characteristics of reed stands.
