Soilborne diseases can spell trouble for crops
The toughest diseases can still survive despite best agronomic practices, so growers should also strongly consider a seed treatment application, advised Dr. Tim Paulitz, research plant pathologist with the USDA-ARS at Washington State University.
“My trials, even those in fields completely infested with Rhizoctonia, clearly show that seed treatment fungicides will help protect young seedlings against this and other soilborne diseases,” Paulitz said.
Seed treatments, such as CruiserMaxx Vibrance Cereals seed treatment insecticide/fungicide, shield seeds from disease and insect pests such as wireworms and aphids, which can carry and spread Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus (BYDV). This enables healthier, stronger root systems to develop. With CruiserMaxx Vibrance Cereals, protection begins the moment seeds are planted and continues as they work systemically to protect young, growing plants.
"It's so important to get started off on the right foot to give your wheat crop the best chance to withstand the elements,” Popiel emphasized. “Plan and act ahead, and you'll reap the rewards."
