Our winter wheat and winter barley crops have broken dormancy very early - I’d say we are 3 - 4 weeks ahead of “average" and almost all of our spring wheat is planted.
About 3 weeks ago, we started having symptoms of BYD showing in winter cereal fields. Two times in the last two weeks I have taken a tour through the southern part of the state. In most areas, 85-95% of our winter wheat fields are showing 95-100% incidence. Some are severe, and growers are removing (spraying and plowing) some of these fields and replanting spring grain or dry beans. Growth stages are tillering to jointing.
