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

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.

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.
