FHB Update from DE, 05/06/14

Fields continue to develop at an uneven pace. Significant variability in growth stages can be found within fields and experimental test plots. This is likely a result of persistent cool temperatures. Timing any fungicides this season will be problematic due to the within field variability. Wheat throughout Delaware is still between Feekes 6 and 8. Expect growth to jump quickly with warm temperatures towards the end of the week. Most fields are still at least 10 days from flowering.
