Pest Alert in Wheat!

intern Pat CauleyYesterday we took one of our Agronomy interns, Pat Cauley, to investigate a couple of wheat fields.   We found evidence of powdery mildew, a destructive fungal pathogen, and aphids.  If you are producing wheat this season please make sure to scout your fields now for any pest pressure.  If you need assistance please contact your local Allied Cooperative Agronomist.  These pests can cause damage to your wheat crop and significantly reduce yield potentials.   For more information on this powdery mildew, Powdery_Mildew_of_Wheat.
