Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-151-G
Project Type: Grant

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

Objectives of this Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Management Coordinated Project are to: 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, Prosaro Pro® and Sphaerex®; 2) Compare the efficacy of Prosaro Pro and Sphaerex to that of Prosaro®, Caramba®, and Miravis Ace®; 3) Generate data to further quantify the economic benefit of FHB and DON management programs and 4) Generate data to validate and advance the development of FHB risk prediction models.

The approach will be to conduct the standard coordinated protocol for the MGMT-IM category for Wisconsin. The standard protocol is aimed at addressing all four objectives above. The data will be supplied to coordinating project managers as requested.
