Wheat growth stages vary across Indiana, but many fields are flowering or beginning to flower in areas of southern/central Indiana. These regions are at low to moderate risk for Fusarium head blight (FHB) development, however the intermittent rains and warmer temperatures will likely increase risk of disease development.
On May 7, stripe rust was confirmed in research plots at the UNL Agricultural Research and Development Center (ARDC) near Mead. Wheat in the plots is still in the early stages of development.
At a regional level, both leaf rust and stripe rust were reported in Texas as early as February and March but so far Oklahoma is only reporting low or trace levels of these rust diseases. The disease levels have also been low locally in Kansas.
