Integrated Approaches to Reduce Fhb and Don in Irrigated Grain Production of the Arid West
Project Number: 0500-00053-004-01
Start Date: Jun 01, 2014
End Date: May 31, 2017
Determine level of effective FHB resistance in advanced lines and widely grown cultivars needed in irrigation systems in the western US.
1) Establish a field screening nursery; 2) Characterize FHB resistance in spring barley and wheat cultivars; 3) Determine the effectiveness of fungicide application in reducing symptoms and DON levels under irrigation.
