Yellow rust has been detected in the wheat crop spread over five acres in Taprapur village of the district’s Saraswati block. The disease was observed in HD-2967, Barbat and 25+2 varieties of wheat.

The affected crop was inspected by a team of the Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Department comprising deputy director agriculture (DDA) Aditya Pratap Dabas, senior scientist of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Damla, Dr URS Taya and assistant plant protection officer Dr JS Saini.

Aditya Pratap Dabas said, “It is the first incident of yellow rust during this rabi season. Fungicide has been sprayed in the field following inspection.”

Dabas said farmers should avoid irrigating their fields for the time being given the recent rain spell.

He said the teams of Agriculture Department would regularly visit villages and monitor the crop.
