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

Objective:
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.

Approach:
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.
