Surveys will continue in Lincoln, Adams, Douglas, Spokane and Stevens counties until harvest or theres no insect activity, said Diana Roberts, regional specialist for WSU Extension in Spokane and Lincoln counties.

Growers who find insects should consult their crop consultant or call the research team, Roberts said.
...
We will be putting our heads together after the season to figure out what to do next, Roberts said.

"Some growers, however, may see a dark cloud rise above their grain combine - and it won't be from the exhaust," said Diana Roberts, a Washington State University Extension specialist. "The culprit is stem rust - a fungus that infects cereal crops late in the season and often goes unnoticed until harvest, when black clouds of spores erupt as the crop is threshed." Farmers are familiar with stripe rust, which has been a major problem in the region. Stripe and leaf rusts infect wheat leaves primarily. Stem rust is caused by a different fungus; as its name suggests, it infects the plant stems as well as leaves.

"We have a website that has photos and information on identifying and managing stem rust," Roberts said.
...
"WSU wants to know if farmers find stem rust in their fields so we can determine the extent of the problem," said Roberts. "There's a tab on the stem rust website where you can enter information about affected fields. You may also go there for more detailed information about stem rust and how to eradicate barberry." For more information, go to the website or contact Diana Roberts at WSU Spokane County Extension, 509-477-2167 or robertsd@wsu.edu. ----------------------------------- Contacts: Diana Roberts, Spokane Area Extension Educator, 509-477-2167, robertsd@wsu.edu

Diana Roberts, extension agronomist with Washington State University's Spokane County Extension, will host a meeting of interested participants to discuss the next move for the cover crop project.

...
Growers are still interested in the possibilities for their operations, Roberts said, even though the cover crops planted last fall wound up taking moisture out of the soil, which wasn't the desired effect.
"It's got to be consistent with what will grow here," she said. "Basically, we tried to bring in what they were doing in the Midwest and now we've got to revamp it to work for our area."
Things that work for the Midwest with its summer rainfall do not typically tend to translate to the Pacific Northwest. But Roberts said growers wanted to include crops suited for the winter rainfall system of the region.
Cover crops are gaining momentum in the region, with another group in Wenatchee working to develop cover crops in orchards, Roberts said.
"In theory they are a wonderful addition to our crop rotation," she said.
