Disease Impact Root and crown rotting diseases are among the most common and destructive diseases of wheat in South Dakota. They are present in every growing season and are estimated to cause as much as 3-4% crop losses in an average year. Losses may be greater in years with environmental conditions favoring specific root or crown diseases.
