FHB Update from ND, 07/05/18

Spring wheat and durum growth stages vary across the state. Some fields are entering early dough development, while later planted fields are in the boot stage. For susceptible varieties that are entering flowering stages, several pockets of moderate to high risk exist in the state. Risk will likely increase on the eastern half of North Dakota in the next few days. Continue to monitor the growth stage of fields that are entering the flowering stages of development and apply an effective triazole (FRAC 3) fungicide when needed.
