GrainGenes, a Database for Small Grains
"GrainGenes is a compilation of molecular and phenotypic information on wheat, barley, rye, triticale, and oats. The project is supported by the USDA-ARS Plant Genome Research Program, and by the community of scientists who are providing the information and the reasons to be interested in it."
Illinois Small Grains Information
This is a link to Ch. 4 of the Illinois Agronomy Handbook that discusses small grains management and offers links to online decision aid tools.
Kansas Wheat Page
"The mission of The Wheat Page is to bring together KSU electronic information about wheat into one place, to provide convenient access to comprehensive information about wheat in Kansas and the USA, to serve producers, processors, educators, researchers, and consumers of wheat, and to provide links to other useful wheat sites on the worldwide web."
Kentucky Wheat Science
"The UK Wheat Science Group comprises researchers and extension specialists at the University of Kentucky from the Departments of Agronomy, Plant Pathology, Entomology, Agricultural Economics, and Biosystems & Agricultural Engineering, Agricultural Extension Agents, and farmers. Our goal is to solve the problems that limit the profitability of wheat production in Kentucky. "
Minnesota Small Grains
"The Small Grains web site is maintained cooperatively by the Minnesota Association of Wheat Growers (MAWG), the Minnesota Wheat Research & Promotion Council, and the University of Minnesota's Northwest Experiment Station. Our mission in doing so is to provide timely information to wheat farmers in our region."

Wheat Diseases and Pests: a guide for field identification
Originally developed by wheat researchers at CIMMYT, "This booklet is designed as a quick guide for identifying wheat and triticale diseases in the field. It is intended primarily for agricultural researchers, technicians and farmers in developing nations, but will also be of value to others. The text comprises a brief description of the major wheat and triticale diseases, insect pests, nematodes, physiologic and genetic disorders, and mineral and environmental stresses. Complementing this text and as an aid to the identification are numerous color photographs, drawings and a brief diagnostic key."
