My opinion is there is a lot to scab we don’t know. we have had wheat after corn (broadcast and vt) with what most universities, including your own, would consider ideal for scab and had zero scab pressure in the region. Our worst scab ever was a 100 acre field that had been moldboard plowed in the spring, had fs beans and then drilled wheat (before we started broadcasting). That farm hadn’t seen corn literally in over 40 years.
Last two years we have been in the red for scab pressure on psu ‘s predictor and the local elevators quit testing for scab because there was none.
Now that being said, we select resistant varieties and spray with prosaro or miravis but according to folks smarter than me, those just mitigate the risk, not eliminate it.
Hope all turns out well for your crop. I hope to get mine seeded soon.
