Research Project: Integrated Management of FHB and DON in Soft Red Winter Wheat in Tennessee

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-18-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 1, 2016
End Date: May 31, 2020

Objective:
1) Evaluate the integrated effects of fungicide and genetic resistance on FHB and DON in soft red winter wheat with emphasis on double applications and new genotypes; 2) Generate data to conduct an economic analysis of the integrated effects of fungicide and resistance on FHB/DON; 3) Develop more robust “best-management practices” for FHB and DON; and 4) Generate data to advance the FHB and DON risk prediction effort.

Approach:
Field trials will be conducted at multiple locations in Tennessee with two cultivars (moderately resistant and susceptible) and five fungicide treatments. Data from these trials and others in the MGMT_CP will be compiled and a technique called meta-analysis will be used to conduct a quantitative synthesis of the results.
