IPM Survey – Wheat Disease Update

The IPM scouts visited 153 wheat fields in North Dakota over the past two weeks. Tan spot was observed in 13.1% of the scouted fields (Figure 1). The highest amount of tan spot severity was documented in wheat on wheat production systems. Stripe rust was detected in a winter wheat variety plot at the Langdon Research and Extension Center (Jaime Lundquist and Lesley Lubenow). This is the second report of stripe rust for the state. Continue to scout fields and pay attention to periods of prolonged leaf moisture (ie: dew and rain) that favor the development of fungal leaf diseases.
