Fusarium Head Blight (Scab) Report

The small grain crop is quickly maturing across the state and now is a good time to scout fields for any head diseases; most important Fusarium head blight (scab). Last week, the IPM survey scouts identified scab in 42% of the scouted wheat fields. Similarly, I have seen variable levels of scab at research centers and sites across the state (Figure 1).
