Yellowing in Kord wheat

Farmers who are growing Kord CL plus this season may have noticed that, in comparison to Scout and Yitpi, the variety is exhibiting some yellowing, scattered through the canopy but particularly on the older leaves.

Katherine Hollaway's insight:

While the yellowing tends to be worse if the plant is stressed, unless conditions are conducive, it is unlikely to be disease but rather another of the ‘physiological yellowing’ symptoms typical of the variety.
