Wheat in AR, Southern MO, TN, and Western KY is likely at or near the critical stages of growth. At this point, the forecasting model indicates that the risk of severe disease is low in most of these areas. There is a region of southern AR that appears to be a moderate or high risk, however, wheat in this area is likely past the most vulnerable growth stages. Late maturing fields may still be at risk for problems.
