Here is a message from Nicole Anderson, OSU Field Crops Agent, regarding Winter Wheat Stripe Rust. The Tangent group has also been seeing Stripe Rust in early planted Winter Wheat in our area.
Field Reps and Growers,
A photo exhibiting classic early season stripe rust symptoms came into the OSU plant clinic yesterday (1/22/2013). The winter wheat field is in the McMinnville area of western Oregon.
Recommended Action: Growers and crop consultants should scout fields throughout the region for stripe rust and treat fields as necessary.
Feel free to call or email with questions.
