IPM Survey – Wheat Disease Update

Last week the IPM scouts visited 87 wheat fields and 13 barley fields in North Dakota. Tan spot was the most common wheat disease (found in 53% of the fields). Tan spot severity on leaves ranged from 2% to 25%. Other wheat diseases observed were Septoria leaf spot and wheat streak mosaic virus. The most common barely diseases detected were spot blotch and net blotch. Continue to monitor fungal disease levels in the small grain crop and make fungicide applications when deemed necessary.
