Maricelis Acevedo's research at North Dakota State University is focused on genetics to build resistance to leaf and stem rust in wheat.
Wet, saturated soils and variable environmental conditions certainly complicate issues associated with nitrogen fertilization of wheat fields in the Mid-South.
Some wheat has begun to green up, so this is a good time to start planning for topdressing nitrogen (N) on the winter wheat crop.

The wheat markets also declined in the wake of the WASDE data. Despite likely underlying support stemming from the uncertain Black Sea situation, wheat futures accompanied the other crop markets lower Sunday night. Futures actually turned mixed by late morning, but came under fresh pressure when the WASDE report was released and closed weakly. May CBOT wheat futures fell 13.25 cents to $6.4075/bushel at their Monday close, while May KCBT wheat futures dropped 10.0 cents to $7.1125, and May MWE futures lost 12.25 to $6.9275.
