Research Project: Using Genetic Resistance and Fungicides for Managing Fusarium Head Blight in Louisiana

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-133-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 1, 2022
End Date: Apr 30, 2026

1) Evaluate the integrated effects of fungicide treatment and genetic resistance on FHB and DON in all major grain classes, with emphasis on new combination fungicides. 2) Compare the efficacy of fungicides.

Fungicide/variety trials will be planted on two LSU AgCenter experiment stations (Macon Ridge and Dean Lee). Trials addressing objective two will be planted on three experiment stations (Ben Hur, Macon Ridge, and Dean Lee). Integrated management and Uniform fungicide trial protocols outlined in the Coordinated Project will be followed.
