The NDSU pulse scouting program in now in its second week of surveying chickpea, pea and lentil fields for diseases and insect pests in north central and northwest counties.

The NDSU pulse scouting program in now in its second week of surveying chickpea, pea and lentil fields for diseases and insect pests in north central and northwest counties. Scouts are surveying fields for Ascochyta, root rot, Fusarium wilt, grey mold, white mold, powdery mildew, bacterial blight, anthracnose (lentils), cut worms, grasshoppers, aphids and pea leaf weevil (peas). Growers interested in participating in this program may still get in touch with myself (northwest counties) or Dr. Travis Prochaska (north central counties) to join.

Thus far we have observed some mild root rot symptoms in McKenzie, Williams and Burke counties (Fig 1).

Full results of the pulse crop scouting will be available starting next week at www.ag.ndsu.edu/ndipm

Stay tuned!
