FHB Update from US, 07/09/19

The focus of the forecasting effort is now on spring wheat in North Dakota and Northern Minnesota. The risk map is currently showing areas of moderate and high risk in these areas of the country. Growers in these areas should consult with local university extension and other advisors to further evaluate the risk of disease and need for fungicide treatment. Selecting the state of interest from the menu to the left of the map will zoom to show more detail and display commentary from local disease specialists. Much of the winter wheat in the southern US has already been harvested. These areas are now excluded from the analysis and displayed as gray areas on the risk maps.

There is a large area of the Mid. West that is at moderate and high risk for Fusarium head blight. Local reports from this area indicate that wheat is at or approaching growth stages that are most vulnerable to disease in the central regions of KS, MO, IL, Southern IN and OH. Parts of MD and DE may also be at risk. Producers in these areas should monitor the weather conditions carefully and consult with local extension experts or consultants for more informaton. Fungicide applications may be needed to suppress disease in these areas.

Wheat in AR, Southern MO, TN, and Western KY is likely at or near the critical stages of growth. At this point, the forecasting model indicates that the risk of severe disease is low in most of these areas. The model currently indicates a large portion of IL, IN and OH are at a moderate or high risk of severe disease. Local reports from this area indicate that wheat in this area is not at flowering or early stages of grain fill growth stages that are most vulnerable to disease. Producers in these areas should monitor the weather conditions carefully. Fungicide applications may be needed to suppress disease if the risk remains high.

Wheat in AR, Southern MO, TN, and Western KY is likely at or near the critical stages of growth. At this point, the forecasting model indicates that the risk of severe disease is low in most of these areas. There is a region of southern AR that appears to be a moderate or high risk, however, wheat in this area is likely past the most vulnerable growth stages. Late maturing fields may still be at risk for problems.
