That's Kyle Strichilla, a crop protection field sales representative for Bayer Crop Sciences. He's based in the Pacific Northwest, where he focuses a lot of his attention on diseases of winter wheat like stripe rust. “In rust is the big one that I think most winter wheat growers are mindful of because it has been bad in the past. For example, last year I remember in the winter hearing rumblings from researchers that it had the potential based on the climate and the conditions that we were seeing early season to be a bad year for stripe rust. And then I didn't really hear much about stripe rust as the season went on. So to me, that's an indication that guys are forecasting disease pressure for the year and taking those preventative measures.” Strichilla says Bayer offers products like their absolute max fungicide.
