The effects of Cereal Cycst Nematode (CCN) can be confused with Rhizoctonia root rot. Now is the time to watch for signs/symptoms of this pest in cereals. For more information on what symptoms and signs look like, see the Montana AgAlert for CCN.
To learn more, or to see more MSU alerts, visit the Montana AgAlert website.
If you find suspicious cereal fields and would like them tested for CCN, contact Dr. Michael Harding by email or by calling 403-362-1338.
