FHB Update from DE, 05/07/14

Fields continue to develop at an uneven pace. Most wheat in Delaware is still between Feekes 6 and 8, with some at Feekes 10. Expect growth to jump quickly with warm temperatures towards the end of the week and the beginning of next week. Some areas received rain today and additional wet, warm weather is expected next week. Fields at Feekes 10 now may be entering flowering around that period. Foliar diseases tend to be low on the canopy in most fields and at low severity levels.
