2008 Wheat Disease Update, April, SouthWest Georgia

Wheat diseases are here. If you have not scouted your fields lately, check out the publication below for more info on wheat disease and what action you need to take.

Don and I scouted some fields last week and noticed a few spots with some minor disease pressure. Spraying ahead of the game allows you maximize your yields.

If using fungicides, make sure you use enough water to ensure good coverage. 20-30 gal/acre for ground applications, and 5-7 gal/acre for aerial.
