Research Project: Integrated Management of Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) in Minnesota

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-093-G
Project Type: Grant

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

This research is part of the larger Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) management coordinated project, established to determine the efficacy of the fungicides to control FHB and DON. These fungicides may provide additional and effective FHB control options and reduce Fusarium-associated mycotoxins in small grain cereals.

In Minnesota we plan to establish the integrated management trial (IM) and the uniform fungicide trials (UFT) as outlined in the USWBSI management coordinated project standard protocol for hard red spring wheat (HRSW), with the field experiments to be established at two locations, Saint Paul and Crookston.
