Share Tweet Email

The K-State Research and Extension publication S84 “Diagnosing Wheat Production Problems” has been recently updated. This comprehensive update was a collaborative effort between three K-State departments: Plant Pathology, Agronomy, and Entomology. This 66-page full-color publication will help growers diagnose likely causes of slow growth, distorted appearance, off-colors, injury, and death of wheat plants from planting to harvest.

There are five sections organized by growth stage covering a myriad of wheat production problems. This is also an index to help users quickly find the appropriate section for their topic of interest. The sections, accompanied by color photos, are:

  • Early Season Problems: Emergence to Tillering
  • Middle Season Problems: Tillering to Heading
  • Late Season Problems: Heading to Maturity
  • Post-Harvest Problems
  • Rare Problems
