Fungicides in Wheat

                                                                   

 

It is almost that time of year to consider applying your fungicides on your wheat crop. Foliar diseases such as leaf rust are most severe in wet/cool years which fits the trend, we have been in over the past 45 days. Research done by Oklahoma State University says the critical time to apply is when you first see the flag leaf to the time the heads fully emerge providing protection during flowering and milk stages (grain fill). For more information regarding fungicides in wheat visit https://extension.okstate.edu/fact-sheets/foliar-fungicides-and-wheat-production-in-oklahoma-march-2016.html.

Producers wanting to push protein in wheat should consider adding Sulfur to their fungicide applications. Sulfur is required for synthesis of certain amino acids and proteins. We recommend a 12-16 oz of SulPak at the same time that you apply your fungicide. This treatment runs from $2-2.66/ac depending on which rate you go with.
