Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Fungicide Timing in Spring Wheat

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

Background

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.


The purpose of this project is to quantify the impact of FHB on the quality of harvested grain. The trial will compare the producer's normal fungicide application at the recommended rate and timing to a fungicide application 3-5 days after the recommended timing.
