Research Project: Integrated Strategies for Improved Management of FHB and DON in Soft Red Winter Wheat in Alabama

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-17-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 23, 2016
End Date: May 22, 2021

Objective:
1) evaluate the integrated effects of fungicide and genetic resistance on FHB and DON in SRWW grown in AL; 2) evaluate regionally adapted SRWW cultivars for which FHB reactions are lacking; 3) evaluate late and multiple tebuconazole applications for control of FHB.

Approach:
Evaluate the integration of fungicides applied at flower with varying levels of host resistance using four soft red winter wheat (SRWW) cultivars adapted for coastal plains production areas.
