Project Number: 0500-00053-003-74
Start Date: May 05, 2014
End Date: May 04, 2017
Overarching objective of the U.S. Wheat and Bar1ey Scab Initiative focuses on the development of plant genetics and rnangement systems to reduce the incidence of scab. The objectives of this proposal are to provide rnycotoxin analyses on new varieties and processed food.
