2019 Wheat Leaf Rust and Stripe Rust

 

K-State Research and Extension eUpdate on Wheat Leaf Rust & Stripe Rust Development

"The wheat crop in central Kansas is now moving through the flag leaf emergence and flowering stages of growth. The crop is most advanced in the southeast and south central region where many fields are either flowering or already into the early stages of grain development. Wheat in the north central and northwestern regions generally ranges from late-jointing to flag leaf emergence. These growth stages are critical for many wheat diseases and management decisions." -Erick De Wolf, Extension Plant Pathology

Control/Treatment – Fungicide Application
Planting disease-resistant varieties is the most effective and economical way to control stripe rust. Foliar fungicides can effectively control stripe rust. According to K-State Research and Extension, when fungicides are applied to the crop at the boot stage of development, the fungicides should provide protection for the upper leaves that contribute most of the energy used to produce grain. Many products have specific use restrictions and may be present on the amount of active ingredient that can be applied within a period of time or on the number of sequential applications that can occur. Use of the fungicides have been approved by the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency).
