Research Project: Verification of the Value of Genetic Resistance and Fungicides on the Control of Fhb in Winter Wheat in North Dakota Project Number: 0500-00053-003-40
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 12, 2011
End Date: May 11, 2015

Objective:
Evaluate, in a farm-like setting, advanced lines or recently released varieties with improved FHB resistance for yield, yield stability, FHB resistance and farmer acceptance in North Dakota.

Approach:
Genotypes will be grown, with and without fungicide applied at flowering. Experiments will be arranged as a split plot, with fungicide application as a whole plot and genotypes as subplots and will be established in fields that were previously cropped to spring wheat, barley or corn so that inoculum levels of FHB will be relatively high, but not unlike conditions found in farmers fields.
