Research Project: Improving Small-Grain Disease Management in North Carolina

Location: Plant Science Research

Project Number: 6070-22000-019-015-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 1, 2023
End Date: Jan 31, 2028

Provide the small-grain industry with research-based recommendations on small-grain disease management, and provide the small-grain breeding community with data on disease resistance of advanced experimental lines.

Conduct field experiments to screen experimental lines for resistance to Septoria nodorum blotch and Fusarium head blight. Provide research-based information and recommendations at stakeholder meetings such as field days. Investigate whether there are tolerant/resistant wheat cultivars to serve as controls for Pythium root rot screening work.
