Research Project: Integrated Management and Prediction of Fusarium Head Blight and DON in Winter Wheat

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-23-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 13, 2016
End Date: Jun 12, 2020

A field experiment (part of a multistate project) will be conducted in winter wheat to investigate the effects of cultivar resistance and fungicide application programs on Fusarium head blight (FHB) and deoxynivalenol (DON) accumulation.

The experimental design will be a randomized complete block (RCBD), with a split-plot arrangement of cultivar as the whole-plot and fungicide treatment program as the sub-plot. There will be four replicate blocks with four cultivars adapted to Nebraska.
