Research Project: Fusarium Head Blight Investigation in Tennessee

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-091-G
Project Type: Grant

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

Overall project goals are to develop integrated management strategies for Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) and mycotoxins that are robust to conditions experienced in production fields and help develop and validate the next generation of management tools for FHB/DON control.

Two locations for the trial will be used each year, with a RCBD, split-plot arrangement of cultivar (mainplot) and fungicide (sub-plot) program. Four different cultivars will be utilized, from 2 different commercial companies where one will be most recent release with resistant/tolerance to Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) and the other being FHB susceptible.
