Development of integrated pest management strategies to minimize the loss of yield and quality from FHB.
1) Evaluate potential winter and spring barley germplasm. The trials will identify varieties suitable for malting and adapted to the Northeast. 2) Conduct fungicide application studies for optimal timing and best practices for the Northeast. 3) Standard organic grain practices including elevated seeding rates and interseeding of clover will be evaluated as to their impact on FHB and DON.
