Project Type: Grant
Start Date: May 1, 2022
End Date: Apr 30, 2026
1) Evaluate integrated effects of fungicide treatment and genetic resistance on Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) and DON in wheat and barley; 2) Compare efficacy of new fungicide products vs. existing "standards"; 3) Generate data to quantify the economic benefit of FHB management programs; and 4) Generate data to validate FHB risk prediction models.
Field trials will be established in Kentucky to evaluate tactics for management of Fusarium head blight and deoxynivalenol in soft red winter wheat and winter barley. When appropriate, national protocols will be followed, and data will be submitted for multi-state analyses.
