Wheat Grower Update

Plantation Seed

Wheat Grower update

03-30-2018

 

Wheat is  flowering from Tifton, GA south and should flower in Plains next week . Wheat gets FHB or SCAB during this flowering time from rain events.

Please use Caramba, Proline, or Prosaro at labeled rates . This approach should decrease your exposure to FHB while keeping the other diseases in check.

 

Foliar insecticide treatments for aphid and stink bug control can be added per label. A well-timed  insecticide application of a persistent pyrethroid insecticide such as lambda cyhalothrin (Warrior, Karate, Lambda, Silencer, others) will kill aphids and increase yields.

FHB is the problem that has cut our yields in half and ruined the quality of our wheat for the last three years. Rainfall or irrigation will increase infection if it occurs during the 5-6 days of Flowering.  Wheat growers MUST change their fungicides to control FHB.

Please look at labeled fungicides and CHOOSE WISELY for FHB control. Below you will find what we have been doing wrong in the past years to control FHB.

Strobilurins can actually increase vomitoxin (DON) relative to an unsprayed check.  This effect of increasing DON gets worse the closer you get to flowering, so it’s best not to apply a strobilurin-containing fungicide after flag leaf. That goes for pure strobilurins and also strobilurin-triazole mixes. Some triazoles are more effective than others at reducing FHB kernel damage and vomitoxin.  The best ones are Caramba, Proline, and Prosaro. Tilt and Folicur do some good, but not enough in a bad scab year.

Bottom line: use Propiconazole or Tebuconazole to correct any early problems.  When your wheat normally flowers Feekes 10.5 (see photo) and  up to 5 days after flowering put out Caramba, Proline, or Prosaro. This approach should decrease your exposure to FHB while keeping the other diseases in check.

 Foliar insecticide treatments for aphid control: A well-timed  insecticide application of a persistent pyrethroid insecticide such as lambda cyhalothrin (Warrior, Karate, Lambda, Silencer, others) will kill aphids and reduce the incidence of BYD and increase yields.

A spray at Wheat Flowering will be one of the most important tools a wheat grower can use in 2017. Wheat should be  flowering from 03-25-17 to 04-10-17. Wheat gets FHB or SCAB during this flowering time. 

Those of you who went to the Small Grain Soybean Expo in Perry today could have heard from Christina Cowger, Small Grains Pathologist USDA-ARS on this problem that has cut our yields in half and ruined the quality of our wheat for the last two years. Rainfall or irrigation will increase infection if it occurs during the 5-6 days of Flowering.  Wheat growers MUST change their fungicides to control FHB.

Please look at the chart below on fungicides and CHOOSE WISELY for FHB control. Below you will find what we have been doing wrong in the past years to control FHB.

FHB SPRAY UPDATE

04-11-16

In the link below, you will find a photo of wheat flowering and a slide of best time to spray for FHB control.

FHB Spray best time

5-7 days after your wheat strarts flowering, (this should occur around 04-12 to 04-20) put out Caramba, Proline, or Prosaro. (make sure your dealer has product in stock for you) This approach should decrease your exposure to FHB (not complete control, to get better you will need a wheat with the FHB gene and apply the fungicide) while keeping the other diseases in check.
