Research Project: Integrated Approaches to Reduce FHB and DON in Irrigated Grain Production of the Arid West

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-01-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 1, 2014
End Date: May 31, 2018

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.
