ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study by Texas AgriLife Research which shows that wheat streak mosaic resistance bred into several wheat varieties may be negated by planting wheat early and using it for winter forage for cattle and grain. There has been a problem with wheat genetic resistance breaking down in temperatures above 75 degrees Fahrenheit. When the wheat plant become infected early with high mite and virus populations, it is hard for the plants to recover before they go into winter dormancy.
