Research Project: Evaluation of Integrated Management Strategies for Fusarium Head Blight Project Number: 0500-00053-003-86
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 27, 2014
End Date: May 26, 2015

Objective:
The research portion of this project would involve multi-state trials evaluating crop sequence, variety selection and fungicide application as an integrated management program for FHB. Timely dissemination of the research results is also a priority of this project.

Approach:
Continue the concept of integrated management strategies for Fusarium head blight with emphasis on fungicide timing. Rather than fungicide application at a single timing, fungicide applications will be made at 50% anthesis, and two, four and six days after anthesis. The intent is to determine the degree to which genotype resistance and fungicide application timing interact to reduce Fusarium head blight and DON production.
