Small Grain Disease Update – April 30, 2010

Bob Mulrooney, Extension Plant Pathologist; bobmul@udel.edu

Keep scouting wheat for foliar diseases. Stripe rust is still a concern and is present in the South. Warmer weather will favor the Septoria, Stagnospora complex that causes speckled leafspot and glume blotch as well as common leaf rust and tan spot.

Last week I inadvertently did not include Twinline fungicide from BASF as another choice for powdery mildew control and other diseases on wheat and barley.
