IPM Survey – Wheat Disease Update

The IPM scouts visited 127 wheat fields and 18 barley fields. Spring wheat growth stages varied from tillering stages to heading. Barley growth stage of the fields scouted were in the early leaf to tillering stages. Scouts observed tan spot in 31 wheat fields (24.4%) with higher levels of incidence in Western ND (Figure 1). Stripe rust was detected in winter wheat research plots in Fargo, ND on June 12. Only a few leaf diseases were documented in barley fields. With the occurrence of rain events across much of the state, scouts may start finding more foliar diseases of small grains.
