 Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus is threatening cereal crops in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Texas and Montana. There were about a dozen fields confirmed to have the virus in Alberta in 2016.

“Please keep an eye out for chlorotic (yellow) streaks on leaves of cereal crops,” says Mike Harding plant pathologist, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. “Scouting will be especially important in and around winter wheat fields in southern Alberta, south of Hwy #12.”
