The Symptoms and visual damage are very evident as the snow melts away and brown matted down circular patches of turf ranging in size from a few inches in diameter to . Warm temperatures in late February resulted in loss of the snow cover. Green wheat appeared from under the snow indicating that the wheat had suffered very little desiccation from winter winds. This could be a positive indication that much of the winter wheat made it through the winter in good condition.

In addition, approximately 5% of winter wheat production in the state occurs under irrigation. Obviously, snow brings much-needed moisture to wheat fields.

The general rule is 10 inches of snow equals 1 inch of rain, although this varies, depending on how fluffy or heavy the snow is. One of the benefits of getting moisture in the form of snow is that nearly all the moisture will move down into the soil and remain there for quite some time.

The fungus also can cause seedling blight, foot rot, head scab and, in winter cereals, pink snow mold. Development: Spores are produced on crop debris left on or near the soil surface.

These spores are transmitted to leaves by the wind or by splashing rain. Disease development is favored by cool, moist weather. Wheat is produced in almost every state in the United States, and is the principal cereal grain grown in the country.

Winter wheat is a type of cereal that is planted from September to December in the Northern Hemisphere. Winter wheat sprouts before freezing occurs, then becomes dormant until the soil warms in the spring. Winter wheat needs a few weeks of cold before being able to flower, however persistent snow cover might be disadvantageous.

The Speckled Snow Mold of winter wheat occurs in a complex together with other snow molds (Pink and Sclerotinia Snow Molds). The disease is registered in Central (Moscow, Tver., Smolensk, Ivanovo, Vladimir, Kaluga Regions), North-West (Leningrad Region), Volga-Vyatka (Kirov Region), Middle Volga (Penza Region), and Ural (Bashkortostan) areas of.
