Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-076-G
Project Type: Grant

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

- Determine the most viable Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) and mycotoxin management solutions for Pennsylvania and the surrounding region. - Provide feedback for refinement of FHB forecasting models. - Deliver education and outreach to stakeholders regarding barley crop management for improved quality and yield.

- Conduct integrated management trials in two Pennsylvania locations to evaluate selected fungicide chemistries, application timings, and variety selection for Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) reduction. - Conduct uniform fun icide trials in two Pennsylvania locations to evaluate fungicide products, application timings, and economics for FHB reduction - Provide presentations, workshops, field tours, newsletters, and commentary to the FHB risk tool.
