Stop the Streak: Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus

Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus can cause a yield loss of more than 80 percent, costing Kansas farmers up to $75 Million every year. If we stop the spread now, future yields will improve exponentially. Methods of Control:  Remove volunteer wheat with herbicides or tillage Avoid early planting Plant wheat varieties with moderate or high levels of resistance For more information, visit the Kansas Wheat website.
