Stripe rust can over winter on grasses, infected fall-planted wheat and volunteer grains, but usually develops from spores carried on wind currents from other regions. Stripe rust development on wheat is favored by cool, mild temperatures, intermittent spring rains or heavy dews interspersed with bright sunny days. Primary symptom is clusters of yellow pustules form long, narrow stripes on leaves, leaf sheaths, glumes and awns. Stripe rust also attacks barley, rye, triticale and several grass species.
