Research Project: Integrated Management of Fhb and Don of Soft Winter Wheat in Michigan Project Number: 0500-00053-003-97
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 01, 2014
End Date: May 31, 2015

Objective:
1) Evaluate the integrated effects of fungicide treatment and genetic resistance on FHB, FDK, and DON; and 2) Evaluate the effects of postanthesis fungicide treatments of FHB and DON as influenced by cultivar resistance and disease intensity.

Approach:
The trial will use six cultivars (four soft red and two soft white cultivars) possessing differing levels of susceptibility to FHB. The treatments will be inoculated and non-inoculated untreated checks, application of Prosaro (6.5 fl oz/A + 0.125% Induce) at 50% anthesis (Feekes 10.5.1), and three post-anthesis applications (2, 4, and 6 days after anthesis). In addition, we will include a pre-anthesis (10.5) application and a treatment where Prosaro is used 10.51 followed by an application of Caramba or Proline six days post-anthesis. The trial will have a split plot design and four replications. Individual plots would measure approximately 14 x 50 feet. FHB intensity will be assessed in each plot at the soft dough growth stage, Feekes 11.2.
