Pest Update

Pest Update:

Some varieties without resistance may have disease due to the cool temperatures and wet weather. Scout fields for leaf and stripe rust, septoria, powdery mildew, and tan spot. We have mostly been seeing rusts, with a little bit of septoria and powdery mildew, and some scarce signs of tan spot. Many varieties are resistant to disease, but if the cool wet weather continues disease may move up to the flag leaf, and (depending on the cost) a treatment may be warranted.

Very few aphids (greenbug, BCOA, ect) have been seen due to the cooler weather which slows their reproduction and growth. No fall armyworms have been seen but may start to arrive soon.
