Brown Wheat Mite Outbreaks in Western Kansas

Reports of brown wheat mite outbreaks have come in from southwest and northwest Kansas in the last two weeks. Brown wheat mite is a sporadic pest of wheat in western Kansas but can also become problematic in eastern Kansas during dry years. Typically, continuous wheat faces a higher risk of damage from this pest and injury can be confused with drought stress.
