Western Oregon wheat farmers are being advised to scout their fields for stripe rust.
Mike Flowers, cereals specialist for Oregon State University Extension, reported a photo showing classic early season stripe rust symptoms.
The field is in the McMinnville area, Flowers said.
He recommends growers and crop consultants scout their fields and treat them as necessary.
