Wheat Disease – Powdery Mildew Seen

Posted by romeethredge on February 28, 2014

We are seeing some powdery mildew in wheat. Thomas and Randolph County agents reported it earlier this week and I’ve seen it in a couple of fields here. Some varieties have less resistance to it so it’s worse in them.

It’s not a disease that usually causes much yield loss so we are not too concerned about it. The general rule is to control it if it climbs within a couple of leaves of the flag leaf. Here are some photos taken yesterday.
