Following corn harvest, replicated wide (60 ft) strips will be subject to moldboard plowing or left un-plowed prior to sowing wheat over the entire field with a no-till drill. Wheat in each strip will be monitored for FHB and sampled for laboratory quantification of head infection and DON. Our results will identify the range of FHB/DON reductions to be expected from tillage or other direct debris management techniques in single fields of wheat within corn production regions.
