Wheat Update

Posted by romeethredge on March 30, 2012

Lots of wheat is heading out and some has been sprayed for disease control. We are finding aphids in some fields that need treating, but many fields are fine. It’s a good idea to scout for aphids before spraying your fungicide to control aphids if needed. I’m not seeing much predation or parasitism of the aphids in some fields.

Also after the head emerges you get flowering.  See Photo.  It’s best not to water until flowering is over if possible.  Usually about a 3 day time frame.





















Leaf Rust found in more wheat fields this week. You can see a little powdery mildew mixed in here.
