Wheat seed diseases can reduce yield and quality, cause grain to be rejected at the elevator and prevent seedlings from emerging. These can all result in significant or totals losses! You have three main strategies to prevent diseases such as smut, ergot, and Fusarium:
1- Use seed treatments!
2- Use clean, certified seed!
3- Use seed that is resistant to these pathogens!
