Wheat in the southeast region of Kansas is at or near the flowering stages of growth and early portions of grain development that are most vulnerable to infection by the Fusarium fungus. The current map indicates a low risk for severe disease. Growers in these states should keep an eye out for weather systems that could bring rain and extended periods of high relative humidity. These weather conditions could increase the risk of disease.
