IPM Oklahoma!

Wheat and Small Grains IPM


Hard red winter wheat in the most important crop grown in Oklahoma; grown on more than 3-5 million acres and is worth from $400 million to $1 billion in sales each year. Oklahoma's wheat crop is grown for forage, forage plus grain or for grain production only, and thus requires different management based on its intended use. Although wheat is grown in nearly every county in Oklahoma, most wheat is grown in the western half of the state. Wheat is susceptible to various diseases, arthropod pests, and weed invaders. Fortunately, IPM programs are flexible enough to meet those challenges.
