Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Management Through Fungicide Timing

Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Management Through Fungicide Timing

Category: On Farm Research
Researchers: Holly Derksen
Keywords: Barley Fusarium Wheat
Start Date: 2018

Objective: In each of the two projects the objective is to provide further insight on impact of fungicide application and timing on FHB disease levels in-season and in harvested grain.

PROJECT 1 PROTOCOLS: FUNGICIDE TIMING FOR MANAGEMENT OF FUSARIUM HEAD BLIGHT (FHB) IN SPRING WHEAT
PROJECT 2 PROTOCOLS: FUNGICIDE TIMING FOR MANAGEMENT OF FUSARIUM HEAD BLIGHT (FHB) IN BARLEY
Benefits to MB Producers: Being aware of potential risk of FHB infection through use of decision tools such as Manitoba Agriculture’s FHB risk maps, combined with proper timing of fungicide application, are key factors in helping Manitoba wheat and barley growers reduce the risk of yield and quality loss due to FHB.
