NDSU Extension Cereals Pathologist Andrew Friskop says early-season fungicide application in spring wheat targets the residue borne diseases. “One of the most common things to do right now is when a herbicide pass is going across the field is to throw a fungicide on there. It’s common practice. There are good fungicides out there to control early season diseases.” Friskop says scouting for diseases is very important. “The last few years, foliar diseases haven’t been high. We can manage them with fungicide. That’s where scouting pays.”
