Research Project: Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Management in Wheat in South Dakota

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-067-G
Project Type: Grant

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

Evaluating of the efficacy of new fungicides against Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) and on new South Dakota varieties. The overall goal of the research is to generate information that will help growers make FHB management decisions that are effective and profitable.

Trials will be established for both winter and spring hard red wheat classes at two locations. One of the two locations will be misted and inoculated to increase the chances of Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) development and severity. FHB will be assessed in all the plots at soft dough and DON content will be determined in plot grain samples collected at harvest.
