Research Project: Evaluation of Management Tools for FHB and DON in Multiple Wheat Classes and Barley in North Dakota

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-003-72-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 5, 2014
End Date: May 4, 2018

Objective:
Look at the role host resistance and a post-anthesis fungicide application (Feekes 10.51 + 4-5 days) serve in reducing FHB and DON levels in multiple market classes of wheat and spring barley. The development and distribution of educational material on scab and mycotoxins.

Approach:
By performing experiments at multiple locations and multiple grain classes in ND, and by using multiple varieties with different levels of resistance at each location, we expect epidemics of different intensities to develop. We will be able to determine the degree to which genotype resistance and fungicide application interact to reduce FHB and DON across locations and grain classes, under both natural infection and artificial inoculation. Using a multi-faceted approach to address the information needs of clientele. This includes production of educational materials, creating an eBook and/or iBook, and videos highlighting commonly asked questions on FHB.
