I have seen some reports that stripe rust is showing up on unsprayed winter wheat along the Nebraska-Kansas border. Still a long ways south and in a wetter area than us, but take note. Southerly winds can bring rust spores from Nebraska & Kansas north to us. Stripe rust likes the cool nights, so would be the first rust disease to appear. Easy to take out and prevent with a fungicide along with the herbicide. A generic propiconazole is ok on this, but I prefer something more, like a strobi plus propiconazole or a product like Priaxor. Straight strobilurins like Headline or Evito also have activity, and Fortix is now registered on wheat.
