The effects of Anguina triticion wheat yields and agronomic components were investigated at Thrace Agricultural Research Institute, Turkey, during the 2013 and 2014 growing seasons. Evaluations during 2013 focused on the wheat cv. Pehlivan, which is widely cultivated in Turkey. In this cultivar, A. triticiled to a grain infection in infected spikes of 0-100%, with an average of 61.8%. In 2014, yield losses caused by A. triticiwere investigated in four wheat cvs, Pehlivan, Selimiye, Gelibolu and Kate-A. Results indicated that there were significant yield losses averaging 55% in plots infested with A. tritici(average yields = 3.74 t ha −1), as compared to control plots (average yields = 8.38 t ha −1). Yield losses in the four wheat cvs Kate-A, Pehlivan, Selimiye and Gelibolu were estimated as 51.3, 53.2, 56.6 and 59.6%, respectively, with seed infection levels by A. triticiof 21.4, 20.9, 24.4 and 18.3%, respectively.
