First Report of Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus Infection, Nampa, southwest ID

Yesterday, March 17th, a crop consultant brought in winter wheat samples from a field in Nampa, ID, with the symptoms of the Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus infection.

The symptoms include:
  • "Yellowing and/or reddening of leaves starting at the leaf tip and moving toward the base and inward from the margins"
  • "The affected  plants exhibit stunting of both foliar and root tissues"
The description of the symptoms is taken from the University of Idaho publication - "Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus in Idaho Cereal Crops".
