Small Grain Variety Trials & Recommendations
This page contains the small grain variety trials research reports & recommendations.
insect guide
Louisiana Insect Pest Management Guide
This 2014 guide was compiled by LSU AgCenter experts and includes regulations, precautions and suggestions for pest control in Louisiana. Detailed topics include drift of pesticides, hazards of pesticides to beneficial insects and wildlife, phytotoxicity and use of beneficial insects to control pest populations. A section on organic gardening also is included.
Wheat Diseases Photo Galleries
Wheat disease photograph collections to help diagnose and understand wheat diseases found in Louisiana.
Wheat Diseases Information
Wheat diseases, wheat disease identification, wheat disease photo galleries, wheat disease articles, and wheat fungicide links information.
weed guide
Louisiana's Suggested Chemical Weed Control Guide
This 2014 guide includes helpful information on herbicides and weed control with detailed suggestions for aquatics, commercial nursery stock, field crops, forestry, fruit crops, home gardens, lawns and many other Louisiana crops. It includes information on different types of herbicide registrations, as well as information on herbicide labels and restricted uses. Also included are sprayer calibration techniques, suggestions for reducing herbicide drift and a guide to proper spray tip selection.
Managment of Wheat Diseases in the Southeastern United States
Management of Wheat Diseases in the Southeastern United States: An Integrated Pest Management Approach
This publication emphasizes the use of a total integrated management system to reduce wheat diseases and the damage they cause in the field. (PDF format only)
2012 Small Grain Performance Trials
2013 Small Grain Performance Trials
Small grain variety trials are conducted annually by scientists of the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station to evaluate grain yield, agronomic performance and disease reaction of varieties and advanced lines. The trials are conducted at seven LAES research stations representative of the major soil and climate regions of the state. Entries are included in the trials based upon previous performance or at the request of the originating agency.
Louisiana Plant Pathology Series (Wheat) Bacterial Streak and Black Chaff of Wheat
Bacterial Streak and Black Chaff of Wheat
Bacterial streak is one of the most common bacterial diseases of cereal crops. The pathogen attacks wheat and other grasses. (PDF format only)
Louisiana Plant Pathology Series (Wheat) Leaf Rust of Wheat
Leaf Rust of Wheat
Leaf rust, also called brown rust, is caused by the fungus Puccinia triticina. This disease is widespread in Louisiana and is probably the most destructive wheat disease. (PDF format only)
Louisiana Plant Pathology Series (Wheat) Septoria Leaf Blotch of Wheat
Septoria Leaf Blotch of Wheat
Septoria spp. are mostly parasitic leaf-spotting fungi that attack and damage more than 100 species of small grains and other grasses. The actual damage to wheat caused by Septoria leaf blotch is difficult to measure under field conditions because more than one organism is nearly always involved in foliar infections.

Louisiana Plant Pathology Series (Wheat) Downy Mildew of Wheat
Downy Mildew of Wheat
Downy mildew usually is associated with wheat plants grown in poorly drained areas. (PDF format only)
Louisiana Plant Pathology Series (Wheat) Fusarium Head Blight (Scab) of Wheat
Fusarium Head Blight (Scab) of Wheat
The scab fungus causes seedling blight, crown rot, root rot, stem blight and scab or Fusarium head blight in wheat. Damage to wheat from scab varies greatly from year to year and is associated with warm, moist environmental conditions that occur after wheat heads emerge. (PDF format only)
Louisiana Plant Pathology Series (Wheat) Powdery Mildew of Wheat
Powdery Mildew of Wheat
Powdery mildew is not a major problem of wheat in Louisiana. In limited cases, however, the disease can reduce plant vigor, cause lodging and reduce yield, kernel size and test weight. (PDF format only)
