Crop disease management

Information on wheat disease diagnosis, and control methods that include the use of new seed treatments.


Disease control in wheat requires good agronomic practices whether conventional or direct seeding systems are used. Weather conditions and crop rotations are much more important factors than the amount of tillage in determining disease occurrence and intensity. And seed treatments are a tool that producers can use to help them give a crop the opportunity to achieve the best yields possible.
