OSU Specialists Produce Fact Sheets and Videos to Help Growers Fight Foliar Diseases in Wheat

While the warm, wet conditions all across the state may be conducive to vigorous growth of the wheat crop, the conditions are also favorable for foliar diseases. If not treated in time, these diseases can result in significantly lower yields.

OSU Extension Wheat Pathologist Dr. Bob Hunger and OSU Extension Wheat Agronomist have published a fact sheet about the most common--and most destructive--foliar diseases common to Oklahoma. They have also produced a series of videos to help growers identify and combat these diseases.

Dr. Hunger says time is of the essence in properly treating these diseases and having the proper information at hand will help growers make cost-effective decisions. The three short videos linked below provide an overview on the proper identification of the major fungal diseases as well as best management practices.
