UI Extension is participating in a tri-state effort to determine best management practices for combating stripe-rust on wheat.
Planted in the fall of 2011, this study combines different fungicide chemistries with multiple application rates and timings on susceptible, moderately-resistant and resistant wheat varieties.
This is a joint effort between the University of Idaho, Washington State University and Oregon State University's Extension Cereal programs.
