What can be done about low falling numbers in spring wheat?

We have had some recent calls about low falling numbers in spring wheat, especially in North Dakota. NDSU has published an excellent article on this topic and its available at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/cpr/plant-science/low-falling-numbers-in-wheat-a-concern-08-29-19. Ak your seed salesperson next year about variety differences for low FN. Maybe they have some options to reduce the risk.
