Most of the winter wheat has flowered and is entering stages of kernel fill. Scab risk was low and has remained low for susceptible varieties. This is likely attributed to the sporadic rain from pop-up showers and low relative humidity. Some of the heat and water stressed spring wheat is starting to head and the scab risk looks remain low in the coming days. Given the variation in planting dates and growing conditions, we will see a wide range of flowering in spring wheat this year.
