Wheat diseases mostly a no-show so far
Author: Arkansas Row Crops

Whether measured by the calendar or by wheat growth stage, the level of diseases in wheat fields across Arkansas appears to be unusually low. So far, only barley yellow dwarf has been confirmed from plots at Marianna. The probability of a stripe rust epidemic this year is extremely low. Given this lack of foliar fungal diseases, there appears to be no need to apply a fungicide at this time. Continue to scout for leaf rust and Septoria leaf blotch, and pay attention to the forecast for scab as wheat approaches flowering. Thanks to Jason Kelley, Esten Mason, Randy Chlapecka, and Josh Yates for contributing to this report.
