The reports started trickling into Texas AgriLife Extension offices in March and April. Farmers were seeing signs of stripe rust attacking their wheat fields in eastern and northern Texas. Considering the cooler and wetter winter and early spring in most parts of the state, plant pathologists and wheat breeders expected some sort of rust attack.
But, they didn't expect to see it in wheat varieties previously thought to be resistant to stripe rust.
Ron French, Ph.D., a Texas AgriLife Extension Service state small grains pathology specialist from Amarillo, explained this could be a potential new race of stripe rust. Only characterization studies of this rust by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service wheat genetics laboratory in Washington will show if it is indeed a new race.
