Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-25-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 15, 2020
End Date: May 14, 2021

Objective:
The objectives of this research are: 1) test new fungicides available to wheat growers and develop best management protocols, 2) evaluate current fungicides for efficacy on FHB in wheat and 3) educate growers on best management practices for producing high quality wheat in Louisiana.

Approach:
The researcher will conduct fungicide trials in Louisiana in order to determine the best management strategies for wheat growers in this region. Growers will be educated on the best methods at field days, workshops, meetings, newsletters and other media outlets.
