Wheat

–by Dr. Jeff Whitworth and Dr. Holly Schwarting

Some winter grain mite infestations have been noted in the last 7-10 days.  These seem to become evident every fall, especially under dry conditions, but don’t warrant a pesticide application.  Moisture and/or colder weather will alleviate these infestations, at least until warmer spring weather returns.  For more information on winter grain mites, please visit: http://entomology.k-state.edu/extension/insect-information/crop-pests/wheat/winter-grain-mite.html
