Small Grain Disease Forecasting Model



June 24, 2016 Last week's rain storms in northeast ND will likely create a moderate scab risk for susceptible varieties. However, most of the state will experience warm and dry weather which will likely result in low scab risk for much of the state next week. Before making a fungicide application, check the scab models and upcoming weather to determine if a fungicide is necessary.
