FHB Update from DE, 04/15/14

The 2014 small grains season is officially underway. Small grains are starting to pull out of a late start due to a cold Spring. Wheat ranges from Feekes 4 through Feekes 6. Cool, windy, and fairly dry weather has not been favorable for development of foliar diseases. To date I have not detected significant levels of any disease in fields or small grains variety trials. Fields will not likely be starting to enter flowering for several weeks.
