Fusarium Head Scab….again

I didn’t think we’d see it 2 years in a row like this. But I’m seeing some wheat Fusarium head scab today here in Seminole county and it concerns me.  I don’t think at this point that we are seeing this disease at the level we saw last year and it will differ field by field. We just released a new publication concerning this disease at this post Fusarium Head Blight (Scab) of Wheat in Georgia.

It was bad last year and not at all bad before that. I would see it in low levels if at all. I started worrying about it when we started getting so much rain. Not much we can do about it. We may need to look at variety selection next year, and a few other things you can read about in the publication.
