Wheat Fungicide Program Options  

Progressive Ag Coop is offering a wheat fungicide program to protect your wheat as the potential increases this spring.  The following are some guidelines:

  • Pay attention to disease levels in your fields.
  • Know your varieties and the susceptibility ratings.
  • Risk of infections occur more frequent from spring storms bring in spores for rust from the south. The risk of severe infection is amplified by foliar diseases becoming established early in the season.
  • Disease severity reduction is related to the timing of the fungicide application.
  • An excellent guide is available from K-State Research and Extension on “Evaluating the Need for Foliar Fungicides in Wheat”. http://www.bookstore.ksre.ksu.edu/pubs/MF3057.pdf
