FHB Update from ND, 07/20/17

Scab risk for susceptible varieties northeast ND is moderate to high. The northern half of the Red River Valley also is in a moderate to high risk for scab. Several fields are progressing into dough stage, yet there are several late planted wheat fields that are flowering. Pay attention to the growth stage in late planted fields and use the model to assess scab risk. With the recent rain and higher humidity projected, scab risk is likely to remain moderate to high in areas of elevated risk.
