Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Management Through Fungicide Timing

Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Management Through Fungicide Timing

  • Start date: 2018
  • Project Length: On-Going

Background

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.

Objectives:
  • 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.
