Wheat Scab Situation

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

Weather was favorable for scab infection in Kent County, DE yesterday if any was flowering at the time. The forecast is not favorable for scab statewide for the rest of the week. This should put us out of the window where we might see scab this season. There may be some secondary tillers with heads that were possibly at risk the last two days which may show symptoms in the next week or so. If there is any scab it will be considerably lower that what appeared last year.
